More than 100 containers worth of equipment and 300 staff will be se setting up the concert stage for SMAP’s first overseas concert, reports Searchina.

The group will be performing in Shanghai on October 9 – 10 as part of their “We are SMAP! 2010 SMAP CONCERT TOUR”.

It has been reported that ticket sales are going strong, and some reports suggest it will break the current record for domestic ticket sales in China.

SMAP have not had an international debut yet, although there have been offers from various groups over the years.

To make up for the lost performance at the Shanghai EXPO and to make it possible for as many fans to see SMAP, ticket prices have been cut down to make them more affordable.

It has been reported that the stage setting is currently being debated between groups in China and Japan.  More than 3oo staff members will be flown into China to help set up the concert sets, which will be shipped over in more than 100 containers.  For the group’s safety, a large security squad is also being assembled.
