All 8 concerts! Recorded secretly by very brave fans in the audience.

These fans risked being thrown out of the concerts to bring these audio files to us. Believe me, I know how heartbreaking it is to be thrown out of concerts for recording.

It has taken me until today to compile all 8 shows from 140522-140601.

Another fact that makes these shows special is that IU donated all the proceeds of these concerts to the Sewol Ferry Disaster Relief!

The brave and generous fans that shared them with me have my undying gratitude!

1. When they sing together, it sounds heavenly!

I know I can't be the only one who replayed their Dream High duet "Can't I Love You?" numerous times. It easily surpassed...
