Super Show 4 is the first live world concert tour and fourth international tour by South Korean boy band Super Junior, in support of their fifth studio album, Mr. Simple. The world tour commenced with two shows in Seoul in November 2011 and continued onto Japan, Taiwan, China, other Asian countries, and France. [1]

On 28 June 2013, a live album, Super Show 4 Concert Album, of the concert held in Seoul was released. On 8 August 2013, a 3D film of the Seoul concert was released in 30 theaters across South Korea. The 3D concert movie play out Super Junior’s Super Show 4 concert, part of its world tour that was held in May of 2012 at the Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium. [2]

Concerts[edit]

The two concerts in Osaka were played to a total audience of 80,000 people.[3] In February, the group set records for the fastest selling concert in Taiwan and also the first overseas artist to hold four consecutive concerts at the Taipei Arena.[4] In March, the group became the first Korean singers to hold two consecutive concerts in Macau,[5] and broke the record for the biggest concert audience in Thailand, with 40,000 people.[6] The French and Indonesian legs of the tour also marks the group's first solo concert in Paris,[7] and Jakarta.

On 29 March 2012, Sydney based promoter JK Entertainment announced that Super Show 4 will be held on 5 May at the Allphones Arena.[8] However its cancellation by the promotor was announced on 16 April,[9] due to the hospitalisation of the concert director requiring immediate medical treatment.[10]

On 23 April 2012, SM Entertainment announced the addition of two encore concerts in Seoul on 26 and 27 May. Tickets went on sale on 26 April along with special concert packages for overseas fans offered by SM Town Travel.[11] The encore shows were played to an audience of 22,000 for three and a half hours.[12]

For the second leg of the Japanese dates, 400,000 fans tried to buy tickets for the 12 May concert, as soon as they went on sale resulting in the addition of the 13 May concert.[13] The two concerts were played to a total audience of 110,000 people.[14]
