Korean band Big Bang is coming on the 14th of November to the Jockey Club of Peru for their first world tour.
HIP HOP EXPLOSION
The so called kings of Korea, G-Dragon, T.O.P, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri of the band Big Bang, are the highest-selling artists in their country for both physical and digital sales. Their fifth album ALIVE sold more than 267,319 copies throughout May. Their closest competitor sold 165,411 copies.
Are these numbers not enough for you? How about looking at the madness they cause in social networks?
Their music video MONSTER got 3 million views on YouTube on its first day of release. The five hip hop, R&B and pop dancers might be not as well known in the West as other groups but they have a great legion of fans here in Peru.
The fans are going be so excited to know that they are coming here on 14th of November to perform at the Jockey Club of Peru. The K-pop group (Korean Pop) is coming as part of their world tour BIGBANG ALIVE GALAXY TOUR, for which they are visiting 16 countries. They are visiting only two in Latin America: Brazil & Peru.
The band will be presenting their ALIVE album. This one has set a record for being the first Korean album to enter the Billboard 200 at number 150.
The tour is brought to us by a collaboration between the Live Nation and YG Entertainment. Live Nation has organized Madonna and Lady Gaga’s world tours so a great stage is expected
Television made Big Bang famous. Through the “Big Bang Documentary” aired in 2006, young people fell in love with the K-pop band. The documentary showed an entertaining side of them but also showed the process of choosing and eliminating the members of the group.
Three days after airing the last episode, they had their very first concert. The next year they released their first mini album ALWAYS. Their single LIES, written by G-DRAGON, was a massive hit.
From the very beginning, the members are able to write and compose their own songs and have also managed to maintain solo careers.
THEY ARE NOT FANS, THEY ARE VIPS
Their followers are very important people. That’s why they are not just “fans”, they are VIP. In Peru, there are thousands of them. Like Allison Espinoza and Roxi Guillen, admins of Big Bang Fans PERU. For them, “Being a VIP doesn’t mean being a fan. To us means support them always, be part of their bright future.”
The fan club, BIG BANG IS GREAT PERU, has more than 12,000 followers on Facebook. Most of them from our country. Evelyn, the admin, has so much to say about them, “It is not just that I like them.
