Seoul News: A Benefit Concert At Jamsil Stadium For Typhoon Haiyan Victims In The Philippines

To raise funds for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines,  a benefit concert entitled, "Come Together Now", will be held at Jamsil Indoor Stadium on February 1, 2014, Saturday, from 1pm to 11pm.

                                  (My general admission ticket)

According to the concert's flyer, it will be a day of R&B, jazz, rock, reggae and K-pop performances to be performed by about 60 Korean, Filipino and expatriate artists in South Korea.

Performers will include Big Mama King and a group of 12 artists, Kim Wan Sun, PosTPanic, Cannibal Hearts, Highway Nine, KENYO, Ground Zero, Stream, Sierra Band, Tampas Dusk, Loogie Bassabas, Cookie Chua and many more.

Ticket prices are KRW 50,000 for general admission, and VIP tickets are KRW 100,000, which give the ticketholder reserved seats, private entrance, access to the stage and an opportunity to chat with the performers.

I just got my general admission ticket today from my fellow pinoys, who are helping to sell the concert tickets and raise funds. I told them I will help spread this information about the benefit concert so that more Koreans, Filipinos and other expatriates would come and enjoy the concert, and of course, contribute more funds to help the victims.
