Singer Rain will tour 11 Asian nations, holding a total of 35 concerts to mark the release of his fourth feature album. The tour is expected to be his first step toward becoming a world-famous star after he was named one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" by U.S. weekly magazine TIME.

StarM Planning, the organizer of the tour entitled "Global Project 1st Concert in the World - Rain Asian Tour", said Wednesday that it will spend 40 billion won (40 million dollars) on the 2006/2007 Rain Asian tour.

The agency added that staff members for Rain's tour will include prominent stage designer Mark Fisher, who has worked for Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones, U2, and other famous artists, and choreographer Jamie King, who has helped Rickey Martin, Britney Spears, and Madonna with their performances.

In addition to state-of-the-art video and audio equipment, special lighting and effects technologies will be utilized to insure perfect performances.

Rain is expected to draw more than 1 million audience members during his tour to the 11 nations of Korea. Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.

"Considering our plan to show his tour performances through streaming files on the internet and to release DVDs, some 30 percent of the entire Asian population will come to directly and indirectly watch him perform", StarM Planning said. "We will use the tour to validate Rain's ability as a musician who can favorably compare with other world-famous musicians, and then we will organize a world tour for him".
