Big Bang leaves a Bang in Manila


As a fan, I have always wished to see Big Bang perform live in my home country. I am a Big Bang fan for the good part of my KPOP fandom. Big Bang was actually one the groups that got me hooked into KPOP. For years, I have wished for them to hold a concert in my country and after two successful tours without them coming here, they finally did last October 24. Big Bang Alive Tour 2012 was held at the Mall of Asia Arena in a sold out concert that left fans talking about it for years to come.

World Class Act

Big Bang; composed of G-Dragon, Taeyang, Seungri, T.O.P, and Daesung, is a KPOP group formed in 2006 by YG Entertainment. The group is known for their urban originated music and fashion style. Big Bang embarked on their first world tour this year with their Alive Tour visiting twenty five cities in sixteen countries. At the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, Big Bang won the inaugural “Best Worldwide Act”  in the Asia and the Pacific Region besting famous acts such as Gotye and Sia.

Big Bang in Manila

Although October 24 fell on a weekday, fans still filled the Mall of Asia arena in one of the most awaited KPOP act to perform in the country. The arena was jam packed and the fans truly prepared for the concert with some even coming with their best Big Bang fashion style. Glow stick is a must so fans prepared in advanced to buy the signature crown lightsticks worth almost 2,000 pesos. Nonetheless, fans on the budget get to buy yellow lightsticks as cheap as 200 pesos and Samsung gave away Blue lightsticks for free. So there’s a guarantee that anyone who comes in the concert will be a part of it somehow someway.

The concert was sponsored by Samsung mobile and two led screens were placed for the fans to enjoy the concert more. Big Bang opened the concert in a futuristic concept coming out of pods. They performed their famous songs from beginning with “Blue” and ending with “Fantastic Baby”. The concert lasted for an incredible two hours. Old fans would enjoy all of their old songs such as “How Gee”, “Number 1”, “Lies”, and “Haru Haru”.

Unforgettable Experience

If you’re a fan, this concert would be unforgettable no doubt. If you’re fairly new, you’re bound to get hooked for a long time. Big Bang is charismatic as they’ve been ever before. They can bring the house down like no other. Not every group can perform for two straight hours without leaving the crowd dull. Big Bang got the crowd crazy from the get-go and left the arena still leaving the fans in awe. Nonetheless, Big Bang promised to comeback in the country and the fans surely will anticipate their return.

Big Bang unleashes ‘Blue’

Big Bang has now unleashed the MV for their upcoming single ‘Blue’ off their 5th Album. As always, Big Bang never fail to surprise us. After weeks of teaser I can’t believe I’m saying this but they’re finally here. It was almost a year since they last released a single and now they’re back. The song is typical of Big Bang but that’s what I like most about it.

Big Bang will release the album by the end of the month and that would probably mean a comeback. I can’t wait to see them back every week.
