He may hold more concerts in other cities.
G-DRAGON held his first solo tour “Shine a light” in 2009 and his second tour “One of a Kind in 2013. This will be his third solo tour, and it will be a chance to see his popularity as a global artist and not just a popular singer within Asia.
His third world tour will be above arena-level and will consist of concerts held in stadiums and domes. Expectations are running high as the concerts will be the largest-scale for a contemporary male singer.
The “ACT III, M.O.T.T.E” concerts will not just be large-scale but also unique in concept. The title “M.O.T.T.E” is an abbreviation of “MOMENT OF TRUTH THE END”. The concerts will be about G-DRAGON as an artist and as a 30-year old guy about to start the third stage of his life. Fans are curious about how G-DRAGON will portray his glamorous and successful life and the loneliness and pain it on stage.
On top of working on his world tour “ACT III, M.O.T.T.E”, G-DRAGON is making preparations to release a solo album.
