The Rose was announced to headline the closing ceremony concert of the 29th Korean American Students Conference (KASCON), which will convene at Northwestern University this spring. The concert is scheduled to be held at 1st Ward Events in downtown Chicago on March 17 and is open to everyone ages 18 and up.
The concert marks the rookie band’s very first performance in the United States after its debut last August. The Rose is most known for its breakout single “Sorry” and is currently embarking on its first Europe tour.
“We chose The Rose as our headliner because we wanted a group that could vibe with a college-aged audience,” said Paige Shin, the entertainment director of KASCON 29. “The lead singer of the band is also Korean American.”
General admission and VIP tickets, including a meet and greet and a group photo opportunity, are already released through the-rose.eventbrite.com on February 24 at 12 p.m. CST.
