Marketing CEO Issam Kazim of the Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce said, “The incredible public response to the inaugural performance of EXO’s song Power by the Dubai Fountain in January was a true demonstration of the popularity of K-Pop in the city. We are therefore delighted that this year Dubai has been introduced as one of the host cities on the SMTOWN LIVE concert tour, which will bring performances from some of K-Pop’s brightest talents to the region for the first time.”

EXO visited Dubai earlier this year in January to see their hit song “Power” be played during the Dubai Fountain performance at the Burj Khalifa Lake in Dubai. “Power” is the first K-Pop track to be used for this world’s largest choreographed fountain system.
