**Press Release**

KROWDPOP Announces Unite the Mic Tour 2015
Featuring Ailee, Jay Park, and San E

Global fans select cities where top K­pop stars will perform in March 2015

Kpop stars, Ailee and Jay Park, and rapper San E will tour internationally in late March for the Unite the Mic Tour 2015. With great expectations, KPOP United is proud to announce that the Toronto concert will be on March 20, at
7:30PM EST at Massey Hall only if the city reaches its ticketing goal.

The Unite The Mic concert will offer a breathtaking and exciting experience with Ailee’s powerful singing, Jay Park’s extraordinary dance performance, and San E’s outstanding rapping skills, along with a special collaboration
performance by the artists.

Toronto fans can purchase tickets from January 29, 9:00PM EST until February 17, 9:00PM EST through Krowdpop’s website. Fans who purchase Platinum VIP or Deluxe VIP will have the benefit of sitting closer to the stage as well as getting their posters signed by the artists.

This tour is very unique since the concert is fully created by fans through crowdfunding. Rather than having a concert production company inviting artists and selling concert tickets, fans get the opportunity choose their favorite artists to perform in the city of their choice. Fans’ only requirement is to ensure the ticketing goals is successfully reached during the pre­sale campaign. Chloe Koo, SNS marketing manager at KPOP UNITED, stated that there was an
immense amount of requests from global fans for Ailee, Jay Park, and San E ever since Krowdpop was launched. “They are the ones that made this tour happen,” says Koo. KPOP UNITED has successfully produced Teen Top’s North America Tour in April, 2014.

During the campaign season, fans will pre­purchase tickets for the concerts in those six cities on Krowdpop.com (via Biletix for the Turkey show). Each campaign must reach the ticketing goal to make the concert happen. Shows are not confirmed until they reach their ticketing goal. If a campaign reaches 100% of the ticketing goal before the February 17 deadline, the show will be confirmed and declared officially Krowdpopped.

Date and Venue

The concert will be at Massey Hall on Friday, March 20, 2015, 7:30pm EST.
