Big Bang returns home after epic world tour


K-pop sensation Big Bang finished up the overseas component of their “MADE” world tour at the Tokyo Dome, marking a record-setting run.

On Wednesday in front of a sold-out crowd, the group kept the audience on its feet for three hours, singing “Fantastic Baby,” “Loser” and many of their other hit songs.

In response to fans’ requests for encore numbers at the end of the show, Big Bang answered with “Bang Bang Bang” and “Bae Bae.”

With their sixth concert at the Tokyo Dome during the 10-month tour alone, the iconic K-pop group set a record for attendance for non-Japanese artists, with an accumulated total of more than 910,000 attendees.

The “MADE” tour is Big Bang’s second world tour and the biggest such campaign undertaken by a Korean act.

Kicking off last April in Seoul, the group held 66 concerts in 32 cities across 13 different countries, performing for a total of nearly 1.5 million fans.

The campaign will come to an end with a concert series at Olympic Park in Seoul scheduled from March 4 to 6.
