UPDATED 8 December 2016: Organisers of FT Island’s upcoming concert in Malaysia has informed that “2017 FT Island LIVE [The Truth] In Kuala Lumpur” which was scheduled on 14 January 2017 at Mega Star Arena has been CANCELLED due to unforeseen circumstances.
Five Treasure Island, or better known as FT Island, the famous five-member pop rock band from Seoul is heading to Malaysia in January next year as part of their “The Truth” tour in Asia.
The tour is to support the band’s sixth and latest album, “Where’s the Truth?” which was released back in July.
Making their debut in 2007, the band consists of leader and guitarist Choi Jong-hoon, lead vocalist Lee Hong-gi, bassist Lee Jae-jin, drummer Choi Min-hwan and rapper Song Seung-hyun who replaced Oh Won-bin in 2009.
A year after the band’s debut in 2008, they were supposed to have their very first concert in Malaysia, but sadly it was cancelled due to supposed unforeseen circumstances involving the local organisers.
The band however, managed to plan for a second visit and their first successful concert in Malaysia in 2012, which was reported to be a sold-out show.
In 2013, the band returned to Malaysia once again for the Golden Disk Awards, along with several other South Korean stars including Sistar, B1A4, SHINee, Miss A, CNBlue, EXO and more.
In the same year, they were scheduled to hold their second concert in Malaysia at Stadium Negara, but it was unfortunately cancelled again due to undisclosed reasons, Hello Kpop reports.
This time around, the band is set to hold their second concert in Malaysia at the Mega Star Arena on 14 January 2017, and let’s just hope that this time there will be no more cancellations.
Ticketing details are yet to be announced. For more information, visit FT Island’s Facebook page.
