Japanese band SMAP to play Expo

HUGE Japanese pop group SMAP will perform in the Expo Cultural and Performing Arts Center on June 13, the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination said today.

Free tickets can be reserved free at the center, which can hold 18,000 people, on the day for the 1pm concert.

This will be the first time the group, which has gained popularity around Asia during the past two decades, performs outside Japan.

"We are honored to obtain the opportunity to participate the grand Expo," said SMAP members. "We believed that June 13 will be a memorable day for us as well as Chinese fans."

SMAP is considered a Japanese "idol" band because of the huge profile of its members, who are also involved in TV series, movies, entertainment programs and musicals. Takuya Kimura was the most famous because of his participation in many hot TV series and movies.
