[NEWS] 50,000 Fans Went Wild Seeing BIGBANG Perform at A-Nation
BIGBANG and WINNER enthralled the fans at a major music festival in Japan.
The two groups performed at the “a-nation island & stadium fes. 2014 powered by bin Jelly.” held in Tokyo’s Ajinomoto Stadium on August 29 and made the audience of 55,000 go wild.
WINNER went up on the stage first. It was the first time the team performed live in a stadium but nevertheless they pulled it off for the fans. They performed four songs including “GO UP” and the title of their debut album “empty”. KANG SEUNG YOON, the leader of the boy band, said, “It`s a great honor to kick off the a-nation. I hope you keep on sending us support.”
WINNER`s “empty” is familiar to the fans in Japan since WINNER had been performing this song during BIGBANG`s Japan Dome Tour, which started late last year and went on until this year. So, many fans were able to sing along although WINNER`s debut album has not been officially released in Japan yet.
For BIGBANG, it was their second time to perform at the festival and they were the headliner of the first day. The stadium was full of excitement when the screen announced BIGBANG`s appearance. They started with a powerful live of “TONIGHT” and sang “HANDS UP” and “FANTASTIC BABY” for the fans.
As the headliner, BIGBANG sang a total of 11 hit songs, including “GARAGARA GO”, “BAD BOY”, and “Let me hear you voice”, ending the festival on an enthusiastic note. At the end of their performance, they said,”Hope to see you again at our Dome Tour starting in November.” They will be the first foreign artist to go on a Five Dome Tour for two years in a row in Japan.
BIGBANG`s Five Dome Tour will start in Nagoya Dome on November 15-16. BIGBANG will perform in Kyocera Dome in Osaka on November 20-23, in Fukuoka Yahoo Oku Dome on December 6-7, in Sapporo Dome on December 20, and in Tokyo Dome on December 26-27. The Tour will consist of 11 concerts in five cities and is expected to draw 536,000 fans.
