Running Into The Sun is a concert organiser and concert promoter founded in 1999. The company is best known for bringing the K-Pop wave to Southeast Asia, introducing acts such as Super Junior's Super Show 3 to Singapore and Malaysia in January and February 2011, Shinee World Tour in September 2011 and Girls' Generation's 2011 Girl's Generation Tour in December 2011.

Running Into The Sun also brought in Queen of Mandopop, Faye Wong's 2011 Comeback Tour to SIngapore and Malaysia in Oct 2011 after a seven year hiatus. The concert made headlines as tickets were priced as one of most expensive ever in the two cities.[1] [2]

Besides bringing in international acts, Running Into The Sun also creates original productions. The first Retrolicious festival was held in 2010 at Singapore's historical Fort Canning Park, in an outdoor music festival with artistes including Debbie Gibson, Johnny Hates Jazz and Rick Astley. Retrolicious returned in 2011 again at Fort Canning Park, with Belinda Carlisle, Bananrama and The Human League.

The company is headed by Creative Director Beatrice Chia-Richmond, who was also the Creative Director of Singapore's National Day Parade 2011 and a well-known figure in the theatre and arts industry in Singapore.

Running Into The Sun is based in Singapore with offices in Malaysia. The company is a subsidiary company of Fly Entertainment, an artiste management company.
