The winners of the 2006 Super Girls contest will perform their last concert this year in Wuhan on Saturday.

In a drastic comedown from last year's nationwide craze, this year's national tour has met with a lukewarm response from fans and performance companies. However, E.E. Media, the organizer, has announced that lack of enthusiasm at home will not affect its plan to push the tour overseas.

The national tour of the 2006 Super Girls began in October, aiming to cover 10 cities, but some industry insiders had already begun to cast doubts about its popularity, since the fans' passion for the Super Girls was on the wane.

After concerts in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Nanjing, the doubters were proved right. In Shanghai, the Super Girls sang at a theater with less than 10,000 seats, compared with last year's show at Shanghai Stadium in front of an audience of 80,000.

"Wuhan will not be the last stop of this tour, because we had scheduled the tour until March. We are still negotiating terms to land it in Hainan, Fujian and Tianjin," said an official with the organizer.

Ke Chaoping, general manager of Hangzhou Theater which held a successful Super Girls concert last year, said he was not interested in this year's tour. "They are asking a sky-high performance fee, despite the fact that people are not as keen on them as last year."

Liu Xiaokang, who organized last year's Super Girls show in Beijing, said he watched one of this year's concert in Chengdu.

"This year's production did not impress me much, but I decided to do it because the passion of fans put the box office on insurance. It's different now," said Liu.

E.E. media said it hopes to take the brand to overseas markets by signing a contract with the China International Culture and Art Co.

"We are still negotiating on terms for Super Girls concerts in the United States and Canada, certainly in regions with a big Chinese population," said a manager surnamed Du, who is responsible for finding venues for the tour overseas.

Du confirmed Li Yuchun, the winner of last year's Super Girls contest, will appear in two concerts in Hong Kong on Jan. 2 and 3. "Li's participation is an assurance for the box office in Hong Kong," said Du.
