B.A.P concert chronology

B.A.P Live on Earth 2014 Continent Tour was a 2014 concert tour headlined by the South Korean boyband B.A.P. The tour was held from March to June 2014 in Seoul, New York, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Düsseldorf, Paris, London, Melbourne, Sydney, Taipei, Singapore, Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka, Chiba, and Bangkok. The concert's main theme was 'Earth Needs You,' and six keywords (Justice, Emotion, Passion, Love, Happiness, and You) related to the theme made up the continuity.[1][2]

A week before the start of their South American leg, TS Entertainment released an official statement canceling B.A.P's tour in South America due to insufficient time for the artists to rest and recharge. TS Entertainment stated that they placed their artists condition as top priority when canceling this tour. [3]

Reception[edit]

On March 9, B.A.P’s Seoul concert was broadcast in movie theaters in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Japan. [4] It is estimated that 20,000 global fans were able to view the concert in real-time with B.A.P. [5]

After 11 months, BAP returned to America with their first stop in New York city selling out.[6] According to Soompi, the boys were more mature and charismatic during this tour.[7] Not only did they captivated fans that attended their previous NYC concert last year, but they blew away new ones.[8]

"The six B.A.P boys exceeded all my expectations by proving that they are not just an average K-pop boy band. It's rare to find a group where each member can not only dance, but is also an incredible singer, but B.A.P has that one down. B.A.P had a powerful stage presence that no one at the concert is soon to forget!"

About this tour Bang Yong Guk, the group's leader said:

"More cities and countries have been added to our tour this year so we're really excited. That's probably the biggest change, the scale and size of the tour versus last year. I think we've added new images that we haven't been able to show in our past concerts. So, with our upgraded setlist our show will be more diverse."
