My Bloody Valentine Live in Seoul this Weekend!

**KOREA GIG GUIDE HAS FREE TICKETS TO GIVE AWAY FOR MY BLOODY VALENTINE’S SEOUL CONCERT. DETAILS ON HOW TO WIN THE TICKETS ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST **

Legendary shoegaze band My Bloody Valentine will make their Korean live debut this coming Sunday (February 3) with a concert at Seoul’s Uniqlo-AX.

Formed in 1984 in Dublin, the act’s two fantastic full-lengths, 1988’s “Isn’t Anything” and 1991’s “Loveless,” have both been widely heralded around the globe.  The latter album is pretty much considered one of those “classic” albums that every music lover should own, and was ranked no. 2 on Pitchfork’s “Top 100 Albums of the 1990s” list, right behind Radiohead’s “OK Computer.”

My Bloody Valentine parted ways in the late 1990s.  The act reunited in 2008, and since then fans have been hopeful that a follow-up to “Loveless” will finally surface.  It has now been more than two decades since the release of “Loveless,” but it is looking like the long wait for the next My Bloody Valentine record is nearly over.  On Christmas Day the group posted on their Facebook page “On 21-12-12 we finished mastering the new album!”  And last weekend they debuted a new track during a London warm-up gig they did to get ready for their Asian tour dates.  It has been reported that the song was written on the band’s set list as “Rough Song.”   During the show, band mastermind Kevin Shields told the crowd that the finished album could be released as early as this week.

Regardless of whether Seoul fans are treated to new tracks, Sunday’s My Bloody Valentine concert should be a pretty awesome experience.  One thing to remember is that the group like to play very loud.  The contract for their Korean show says that free earplugs must be made available to all show-goers.  If you’d like to still have your full hearing abilities on Monday morning, I would highly recommend you pick up a pair and use them – especially during set closer “You Made Me Realise.”

My Bloody Valentine perform in Seoul on Sunday night at Uniqlo-AX (formerly AX-Korea).  Uniqlo-AX is located near Gwangnaru Station (Line 5).  Sunday’s concert starts at 7 pm and tickets are 110,000 won.  Advance tickets can be purchased in English here and in Korean here.  There’s a Facebook event page for the show here.
