Big Bang Becomes First K-Pop Artist to Hold Concert Tour at Japan’s Top 3 Dome Stadiums
On September 10, YG Entertainment announced that Big Bang will hold a concert at the “Yahoo! Japan Dome” in Fukuoka, becoming the first Korean musician to hold a tour concert at Japan’s top three dome stadiums.
The Fukuoka concert, scheduled for December 22, will be part of Big Bang’s year-end Japanese concert, “Big Bang Alive Tour 2012 in Japan Special Final in Dome.” Alongside the Fukuoka concert, Big Bang is also scheduled to perform at Osaka’s Kyocera Dome (Nov. 23-24) and the Tokyo Dome (Dec. 5) this year.
YG Entertainment expects this year-end dome concert to attract over 200,000 fans. Big Bang has already brought in more than 150,000 fans to their 5-city Japanese tour in May and June this year, so YGE projects Big Bang’s total ticket sales in Japan this year to exceed 350,000 seats in total.
Meanwhile, Big Bang is set to resume its “Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour 2012” world tour concert in Singapore on September 28.
