Concert promoters Launch Entertainment, Lushington Entertainments and Live Nation have proudly announced the Singapore stop of the highly anticipated BIGBANG Alive Tour 2012.
Alive Tour 2012 is BIGBANG’s first world tour and is set to visit 22 cities in 14 countries, with Singapore being the first stop in South East Asia. These Korean Hip-Hop maestros will be performing on our shores on 28th September at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Comprising of leader G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, BIGBANG has garnered much praise and respect from music industry experts. Touted as the “revolutionary group of Korean music wave” and described by Billboard as “unstoppable”, the members also achieved tremendous success with their solo activites. G-Dragon, T.O.P. and Seungri drove fans wild when they performed to a 35,000-strong crowd last year at the 2011 Formula 1 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix. As the first headlining entertainment act of the three-day event, GD&TOP and Seungri enthralled audiences and showcased the best of Korean pop to a global audience at the Padang main stage.
BIGBANG has been a frequent awards-grabber, both locally and internationally. Following their much-coveted win at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards for ‘Best Asia and Pacific Act’ and ‘Best Worldwide Act’, the group fortified their presence with the highly acclaimed release of their 5th mini-album ‘Alive’. The album has topped all Korean music charts, and the music video of lead single ‘Blue’ garnered 2 million views on YouTube within 24 hours of its launch. The follow-up single releases of ‘Bad Boy’, ‘Fantastic Baby’ and ‘Monster’ furthered their reigning chart success, making ‘Alive’ the first Korean album to be charted on the Billboard 200. The album also went charted at No.1 in Japan iTunes, No.2 in Japan’s Oricon Charts, No.5 in US iTunes as well as No.3 on Canadian iTunes.
They recently launched “Still Alive” – special edition of “Alive” – and swept all Korean music charts again. The MV of its lead single “Monster” gained over 3 million views on the first day of its release, setting record for the most views received by a KPOP artist within the shortest period of time. With such impressive accolades, it is safe to say that BIGBANG is unarguably one of South Korea’s most potent exports.
BIGBANG ALIVE TOUR 2012 is a history marking collaboration between BIGBANG and the world’s leading live entertainment company Live Nation. Live Nation has organized global tours for international renowned artists such as Madonna, Lady Gaga and U2. BIGBANG is the first Asian artist that Live Nation will have produced and promoted for its world tour.
