HYBE’S “2022 WEVERSE CON [NEW ERA]” To Pay Tribute To Renowned Musician Seo Taiji
HYBE announced that the upcoming 2022 Weverse Con [New Era] on December 31 will feature a tribute stage to reflect on the accomplishments of legendary Korean artist Seo Taiji.
Following the tribute stage to the late Shin Hae-chul in last year’s “2021 NEW YEAR’S EVE LIVE” concert, HYBE selected Seo Taiji as the second musician to be honored at the year-end event.
Seo Taiji has contributed his music and message that ushered in a new era in Korean pop music history. Thus, it best conveyed the theme of ‘2022 Weverse Con [New Era]’.
Participating artists will present their own arrangements of Seo Taiji’s hit songs for the first time.
2022 Weverse Con [New Era] is a music festival where artists and fans can celebrate the end of a year and welcome the next at one place.
The festival will also feature performances of global artists: Justin Bieber, BUMZU, DVWN, ENHYPEN, fromis_9, LEE HYUN, SEVENTEEN, and TOMORROW X TOGETHER. The show will utilize five different stages and live band accompaniments.
Handwritten year-end letters and video messages from the artists have been shared through Weverse’s official Twitter and YouTube channels, and additional D-day countdown content from each artist will be released in the days leading up to the show.
