G-Dragon Confirmed to Attend YG Family Concert, Big Bang to Perform as 5
The final decision has been confirmed that Big Bang’s leader, G-Dragon will appear at the 2011 YG Family Concert.
According to related parties, G-Dragon was at the rehearsal site and rehearsed on stage for the performance. Through this, it was confirmed that G-Dragon will participate in the YG Family Concert.
In October when Big Bang’s agency YG Entertainment (YG) released official information for the 15th Anniversary YG Family Concert, it was revealed that Daesung, who was involved in an unexpected sudden car accident 5 months prior, would be attending the event. However, there was no mention of Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon, who was undergoing a scandal at that time.
It was revealed that in reality, YG Entertainment was struggling with the decision of whether or not G-Dragon would make an appearance. However, because of the fact that it is an event that gathers all of the YG artists, it was reported that G-Dragon would attend to give back to all of the fans that gave him strength.
The 15th Anniversary YG Family Concert will be held in Korea and Japan on a grand scale with 200,000 audience members, along with top star G-Dragon.
With G-Dragon’s attendance at the YG Family Concert, this will be the first time after a long time that Big Bang will be seen on stage with all five members in Korea.
On November 6th, Big Bang went to the 2011 MTV EMA held in Belfast, Northern Island, as the first Korean artists to attend the event, and won the “Worldwide Act” award, beating out European nominee Lena, North American nominee Britney Spears, and Africa/India/Middle East nominee Abdelfattah Grini.
At the awards ceremony, G-Dragon, TOP, Taeyang, Daesung, and Seungri, attended the event as five members, saying “We’re surprised and thankful. Because we were given this award by our fans, it is even more meaningful”, adding “Thank you VIPs (Big Bang’s fanclub name), and I hope that through this opportunity, we will be able to bring more interest and love towards Korean music and Big Bang.”
Following their “Love Song” promotions, Big Bang has never stood on stage together as five members in Korea. Because this will be the first time in a long time that Big Bang will perform as five members, it is expected that it will give fans great joy.
Over two days on the 3rd and 4th, the 15th Anniversary YG Family Concert will take place three times in the nation’s largest indoor venue at the Seoul Olympic Stadium. Next year on January 7th and 8th, the concert will also take place at the Osaka Kyocera Dome and the Saitama Super Arena on January 21st and 22nd.
