Big Bang Kicks Off U.S. Tour with Sellout Concert in L.A

Big Bang kicked off the U.S. leg of their “Alive Galaxy Tour 2012” world tour concert in Los Angeles, in front of a sellout crowd of 24,000 fans.

The concerts were held on November 2 and 3 at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Both shows sold out all tickets, extending a streak that started from their Japan concert in May. Their previous concerts in China, Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia have all sold out as well.

“Big Bang’s world tour this time sold out all tickets wherever it was held. The U.S. leg of the concert has also sold out all seats to its L.A, New Jersey, and Peru concerts. It is living up to Big Bang’s world tour title,” an official from YG Entertainment said.

In fact, both the L.A. and New Jersey concerts were sold out even after adding another show, proving the group’s global popularity. Also, it’s particularly impressive considering its Big Bang’s first concert in the U.S., and they’ve never officially promoted in the country.

For the L.A concert, Big Bang performed 23 of their hit songs, including “Still Alive,” “Lie,” Haru Haru,” “Heaven,” and “Fantastic Baby.” G-Dragon, in particular, gave a live performance of his latest single, “Crayon,” with English rap mixed into it.

Big Bang will now head over to New Jersey for concerts on November 8 and 9 at the Prudential Center. They will then wrap up their U.S. tour in Peru on November 14. After their U.S. tour, Big Bang will visit Hong Kong, UK, and Japan till the end of the year.
