BIGBANG successfully held their Alive Galaxy Tour in the Philippines on October 24, 2012. It was the group’s first performance in the country and about 12,000 fans came to see them live.
From start to finish, fans were ecstatic as G-Dragon, Taeyang, TOP, Seungri and Daesung sang their hits. Filipino VIPs jammed to their songs like Tonight, Fantastic Baby, Hands Up, Haru Haru, Lies, and more. The cheers got louder when the members spoke Filipino words like “Mahal ko kayo“ (I love you), “Salamat“ (Thank you), “Magandang Gabi” (Good evening), “Paalam” (Goodbye) and “Sigaw” (Shout). Lucky fans were also able to go home with Seungri and GD’s jacket, shirt, and towels that were thrown to the crowd.
With the success of their concert, fans are expecting the group to come back in the future as they have promised. TOP said, “we will try to come back very soon“ while Seungri said, “We will be going again… because because I love this place! I love this country! Manila baby!”.
After their performance of Last Farewell, everyone shouted in unison “We want more! We want more!” After a short while, BIGBANG came back on stage and sang four songs for the encore namely: My Heaven, Bad Boy, Fantastic Baby and Feeling.
