Described by Korea Times as “the icons of Korean pop” and recognized by many notable outlets like Time Magazine, BIGBANG’s diversely talented and acclaimed artists are arguably the most-influential band out of Asia. BIGBANG consists of leader G-DRAGON, rapper T.O.P and vocals TAEYANG, DAESUNG and SEUNGRI.
Since their debut in 2006, BIGBANG has produced a continuous stream of hits beginning with “Lies,” which received the “Song of the Year” award and was #1 for an unprecedented seven consecutive weeks as well as chart-topping hits like “Last Farewell,” “Haru Haru” and “Tonight.” In 2011 BIGBANG‘s worldwide popularity proved undeniable when they won “Best Worldwide Act” at MTV’s Europe Music Awards, beating out top stars like Britney Spears. In 2012 BIGBANG released Alive which became their most successful album to date, selling over 425,000 physical discs and it became the first Korean album to break into the Billboard 200. The album standouts include “Blue,” Bad Boy,” and “Fantastic Baby,” and the three videos combined have over 305 million YouTube views. From May through August BIGBANG released two singles at the beginning of each month for a total of eight singles, all of which have dominated the domestic charts as well as occupied the top slots of Billboard’s World Digital Songs, proving borderless popularity.
BIGBANG’s Alive world tour in 2012 spanned across 24 cities and placed them on the reputable NY Times “Best Concerts” list. The group is also the first foreign artist to successfully complete a six-city dome tour in Japan not only once but for three consecutive years. With this unprecedentedly large-scale MADE world tour, BIGBANG will meet 1.4 million fans and continue to make history in the live performance market.
