Well well, look what the little kitty dragged in this morning! After Avril Lavigne, Juliette Lewis and other younger stars, it’s now time for the punksters of SUM41 to make it to the mainland. They’re showing their marketing savvy by getting an early start at the efforts. A weibo account has already popped up and is generating quite a bit of traffic:
There is also a douban page for the Beijing leg at Wukesong mastercard arena apparently that is getting quite a bit of traffic!
While I don’t know all their catalog, I still remember them from a fun song they contributed to the soundtrack of the first Spiderman movie: “rock, it’s what it’s all about” that I did like.
I’m wondering if this is the beginning of a trend where we get the safe, younger, mid-level, NON-political bands coming to the mainland. It seems like a safe bet for promoters if you ask me.
This might be a fun show!
