Big Bang concert chronology

The Japan Dome Tour was the fourth concert tour in Japan and seventh overall by South Korean band Big Bang. The tour visited six of Japan's major concert domes, making Big Bang the first foreign artists to headline their own six-dome tour. The tour was one of the country's highest-grossing concert tours of the year, and grossed over US$70.6 million from sixteen shows, with all of the tickets from the tour being sold out.[1]

Concert[edit]

The concert kicked off with the Japanese version of Big Bang's "Haru Haru", and the song was followed by "Blue", and "Bad Boy", and then Big Bang's Japanese debut single, "Gara Gara Go". As the scale of the stadium is immense, Big Bang used a flying stage that enables the entire stage to move, while also using a moving car that allows all five members to go closer to the fans. The three-hour-long concert encompassed more than 30 songs, including encore and re-encore.

Big Bang+α in Seoul[edit]

On November 28, 2013, two shows in Seoul were announced, under the name Big Bang+α in Seoul.[2] Both shows sold out within seconds after tickets were released, which led to a third show being added due to high demand.[3]
