[NEWS] BIGBANG breaks record: adds 3 extra concerts to Japan’s 5 Dome Tour
BIGBANG, the first foreign band to have Japan’s 5 largest Dome Tour for 2 years in a row, confirmed that they would have an extra 3 concerts in Osaka in early 2015 at Kyocera Dome.
The 3 extra ones are to be held on January 16, 17, and 18, which in total covers 5 cities of 14 performances joined by 686,000 fans. BIGBANG is the very first band, including all the Japanese bands as well, to hold a total of 7 concerts in Osaka Kyocera Dome. They certainly broke the record.
The final decision is made since nearly 1 million fans poured in to buy the tickets for the initially planned tour that covers 11 concerts.
The “BIGBANG JAPAN DOME TOUR 2014~2015” will kick off in November 15 and 16 from Nagoya Dome and will move on to Kyocera Dome Osaka on Nov 20-23, Fukuoka Yahoo Oku Dome on Dec 6-7, Sapporo Dome on Dec 20, and Tokyo Dome on Dec 26-27. And now there are 3 extra added in Osaka Kyocera Dome, adding up to a total of 14 performances.
Leader G-DRAGON commented, “We are all excited to see the Japanese fans again in our Dome Tour. We are preparing hard to show you something more powerful and classy than last year. I hope we can have the most exciting, hot end-of-the-year together at the domes!”
Each member is also actively promoting himself in Japan as a solo. TAEYANG released “RISE [+SOLAR & HOT]” in Japan and became the runner-up on Oricon Weekly Chart, and travelled across 6 cities to perform 13 times for his first “SOL JAPAN TOUR RISE 2014” joined by 70,000 fans.
DAESUNG is in the middle of producing a mini album that will be released on the 29th. On Oct 22, he will be releasing 2 works from his solo arena tour LIVE DVD ‘D-LITE Live 2014 in Japan ~D’s love~ that was held across 8 cities, covering 15 performances joined by 170,000 fans.
In their previous 6th Dome Tour, WINNER opened the concert, but this time BIGBANG will be joined by YG’s newest boy group iKON who are chosen on the latest survival program Mix & Match.
