    K-Pop is coming to Madison Square Garden in October when the SM Town Live World Tour descends on the world's most famous concert venue in Manhattan, New York.

    The six-hour concert on Oct. 23 will feature prominent artists such as Girls' Generation, Super Junior and SHINee. They belong to SM Entertainment, one of the country's leading talent agencies.

    "The concert will show the global power of K-pop again," SM said in a statement. "We expect this New York concert will be a big hit following the success we were met with in Los Angeles, Tokyo, Shanghai and Paris."

    The tour kicked off in Seoul in August 2010 and moved to Los Angeles and Shanghai one month later. Dates followed in Tokyo in January and Paris in June.

    In July, hundreds of K-Pop fans gathered in New York's Central Park and the Kodak Theater in Hollywood to demand more SM Town concerts.

    But the next big fixture in the U.S. is set for the 15,000 capacity Garden, which has been graced by most of the big names in pop, from the late Michael Jackson to Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

    The venue, home to the NBA's New York Knicks, also served as part of Rain's U.S. tour back in 2005.
