On September 22 (local time), all 24,000 tickets for Big Bang’s concerts in California and New Jersey were sold out in only two hours.
Big Bang will hold concerts on November 3 at the Honda Center in California and on November 9 at the Prudential Center in New Jersey. Both are very famous concert halls where many world-renowned singers hold their concerts. Each concert hall can accommodate 12,000 people.
Many Korean artists have held concerts in the U.S., but Big Bang are the first Korean singing group to hold a concert at a hall that can accommodate more than 10,000 people. Big Bang have never promoted themselves in the U.S., so it’s even more surprising that all tickets for the concerts have been sold out.
All 30,000 tickets for their concert in Hong Kong, which will be held on December 8 and 9 at the Asia Expo, have also been quickly sold out.
YG Entertainment, Big Bang’s agency, says, “We’re thinking of holding more concerts in the U.S. and Hong Kong because many people there are enthusiastically responding to Big Bang’s concerts.”
In addition to the U.S. and Hong Kong, Big Bang have also sold all tickets for their concerts in Korea, Japan (five cities), China (three cities), Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Malaysia.
Big Bang are visiting most of the countries for the first time, and they’re trying to attract a total audience of 10,000 and more in most of the countries.
Going on the world tour in collaboration of the world-famous agency Live Nation, Big Bang recently received many favorable reviews for their first concert in Seoul. They have also successfully held tours of Japan and China.
Big Bang will continue their world tour until December, and their next concert will be held on September 28 in Singapore.
