Additionally, the New Year’s Eve Live show will feature performances from Lee Hyun, BUMZU, NU’EST, GFRIEND, TOMORROW X TOGETHER, and ENHYPEN.
On the show’s “Connect Stage” Big Hit will also be paying tribute to the late Shin Hae Chul, a pioneer behind experimental rock music in Korea. The singer/songwriter will be brought back to life via artificial intelligence and through the hologram technology, we’ve seen used for artists such, as Tupac and Whitney Houston at concerts and festivals prior. Artists on the lineup will perform renditions of Chul’s songs like “To You” and “What Do You Really Want.”
In a statement about the upcoming streaming event, Big Hit shared, “we prepared a tribute stage to remember the late Shin Hae Chul, who rejected stereotyped thinking and didn’t hesitate to take challenges, in order to console everyone who was having a difficult and lethargic 2020. We have been preparing this for a long time in order to complete an unforgettable performance that connects time, space, and generation with music.”
The event presented by Weverse will start on December 31st at 9:30PM KST / 7:30AM EST/4:30AM PST.
Tickets go on sale December 8.
