SNSD have held “Girls’ Generation Tour” since May 31 last year. They’ve held total 23 concerts in 11 cities in Asia – six cities in Japan (Osaka, Saitama, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Nagoya, and Fukuoka), Seoul, Taipei, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Bangkok.
According to SM Entertainment, SNSD’s agency, nearly 230,000 audiences have attended SNSD’s concert. It’s the largest number of audiences attended at a Korean girl group’s concert. It’s also very unusual to hold a girl group’s exclusive concert in such a large scale.
SNSD’s last concert in Thailand was held on February 12 from 6 p.m. at IMPACT Arena in Bangkok with nearly 11,000 audiences attending. SNSD performed total 32 songs for three hours, including their hit songs like “Gee,” “Genie,” and “Hoot,” songs included in Korean/Japanese albums, and songs for the members’ solo performances.
The audiences sang along SNSD’s songs and cheered in fluent Korean, waving glow-in-the-dark sticks throughout the concert. When SNSD performed “Complete,” the audiences unfolded a placard that read, “FINALLY, WE MEET,” and showed a surprise event, flying paper airplanes, to make the members happy.
Because this was SNSD’s first exclusive concert held in Thailand, the local press like True Music and TNN showed great interest in SNSD at a press interview.
After finishing their concert, SNSD said, “We were so happy that we could feel the love of our fans. It was really unforgettable. We thank all of you who supported ‘Girls’ Generation Tour.’ We’ll try our best to have a better concert in the future.”
SNSD came back to Korea on February 13.
