Korean pop ….

21 05 2012

Big Bang have launched their World Tour and confirmed Hong Kong as a stop (along with Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia). Meanwhile, fans in Australia are anxiously awaiting an announcement and North and South American dates are also expected with a question mark hanging over Europe.

It is certainly the first time a tour of this magnitude will have been undertaken by an Asian artist – a genuine “world tour” unlike the so-called world tours J-pop idols would undertake in the early 2000s (Tokyo-Nagoya-Osaka-Seoul-Fukuoka-Taipei-Sapporo!)

They have not announced the dates yet, but I may go!

Meanwhile the boys have announced the impending release of a Japanese version of their last album with an 80s-to-the-max cover and new songs “Monster”, “Bingle Bingle” (very J-Pop title) and – best of all – an extended version of their wonderfully Daft Punkish intro track “Alive”.
