BIGBANG Wraps Up Record-Breaking Chinese Leg of “MADE” Tour
BIGBANG has successfully wrapped up the Chinese leg of their extensive world tour “MADE,” breaking records by becoming the first-ever Korean artist to hold shows in 11 Chinese cities.
After kicking off the tour in Guangzhou last spring, the five-member group continued on to greet enthusiastic fans in Beijing, Shanghai, Dalian, Wuhan, Shenzhen, Nanjing, Chengdu, Hangzhou, and Changsha. The tour finale took place on August 30 in Chongqing, marking the end of BIGBANG’s three-month adventure across China that attracted an impressive total of 180,000 fans.
According to reports, Chongqing and the local subway were flooded with fans of BIGBANG, all excited to see their favorite idols up close and attend the final show. BIGBANG got their fans’ heart rates up by opening the concert with the explosive “BANG BANG BANG,” and followed up with a selection of their other hits, including “Tonight” and “Stupid Liar.”
Making the leg finale a tad bit more special, fans surprised their idols by performing coordinated chants and moves during certain songs. For example, the audience turned into a sea of pink as fans switched on their glow sticks during “BAE BAE,” and everyone directed their flashing smartphone screens towards the stage during “If You.”
Meanwhile, BIGBANG will take a short break from activities before hitting Taiwan this month and the United States, Mexico, Canada, Australia, and Macau in October, followed by the tour’s final leg in Japan this winter.
