South Korean all-male group Big Bang completed their five-dome concert tour of Japan at Osaka’s Kyocera Dome on Sunday night. The tour drew an estimated 740,000 fans, Sports Nippon reported Monday.
The tour was the first time that any overseas artist has performed in the five domes of Japan for two consecutive years. The group also announced at the concert their first new album in three years will be released in the summer.
At the end of the concert, leader G-Dragon announced, “We promise to make a good album and come back,” to the cheers of 50,000 fans.
G-Dragon, who has been focusing on his solo career after Big Bang’s 2012 album, “ALIVE”, apologized at a press conference before the concert for not releasing any new material in three years. “From now on, we plan to focus and release new material. We want to spend the summer with our fans singing and dancing," he said.
Throughout the tour, Big Bang played on a stage that was surrounded completely 360 degrees by audience seats.© Japan Today
