Before that, let’s first take a look at the trip BIGBANG members took before the beginning of their North America tour.
1. Grand Canyon
Filling up the energy at Grand Canyon!!
For the first North America tour, BIGBANG just focused on the concert itself, so the members had no opportunity to enjoy themselves in this far-away country. That maybe is why BIGBANG members insisted that they take “memorable trip” no matter what this time, and they eventually visited the Grand Canyon by helicopter, to recharge their energy to the full by enjoying the grand view and renew their resolution as BIGBANG! Now, it’s time to meet fans!
2. Las Vegas
