Big Bang will be meeting with fans in 160 countries around the world through MTV World Stage-Big Bang Alive before the start of its world tour.
MTV World Stage-Big Bang Alive will air worldwide on May 4. Most of the broadcast will be devoted to the group’s performances of tracks from its fifth mini album Alive.
The performances of Bad Boy, Fantastic Baby and Blue from the group’s Big Bang Alive Tour 2012 held in Seoul in February will be making it into the broadcast, which is expected to effectively draw anticipation from the fans waiting for Big Bang’s world tour to come by their countries.
More performances from Alive and interviews of the members previously revealed through the ‘YG On Air’ service on Naver Music will air alongside the other videos.
MTV World Stage is a show that airs clips from live concerts of globally renowned artists with the aim to deliver a wide variety of genres to its viewers. In 2009, it started with Coldplay, and continued to air concerts and music festivals by big stars such as Oasis, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Black Eyed Peas.
After becoming the first Asian team to win the Worldwide Act Award at the MTV Europe Awards, Big Bang managed to follow the feat up with the broadcast, standing shoulder to shoulder yet again with world class singers.
From May, Big Bang will start up its Big Bang Alive Tour 2012 in Japan with Live Nation, the entertainment company that helmed the world tours of Madonna and U2.
