Clearly BIGBANG’s U.S. fans cannot wait for the group to bring their worldwide Alive Galaxy Tour to these shores for the first time – both of the band’s upcoming arena dates sold out just two hours after they went on sale this Saturday. 

“For a group to sell out their first-ever U.S. shows is fantastic, and to do so in major arenas such as Honda Center and the Prudential Center is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Rich Best, Executive Vice President of Booking for Live Nation/Southern California.  “But to do it this quickly, that’s simply unheard of.”

YG Entertainment and Live Nation announced the first ever U.S. tour dates by world famous Korean group BIGBANG just last week.  BIGBANG initially kicked-off their global tour, BIGBANG ALIVE GALAXY TOUR 2012, in Korea in March, where they played for more than 30,000 fans, with three shows selling out instantly.  They stormed Japan playing 13 sold out shows for more than 210,000 fans.  They made history in Shanghai, Guangzhou and Beijing with 3 shows and more than 32,000 tickets sold.

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy World Tour 2012 has sold out in every country they have visited.   In Jakarta, all tickets were sold out in a mere 10 minutes. In Singapore, all tickets were sold out shortly after it went on sale and a second show was immediately announced to cope with the huge ticket demand from the enthusiastic fans.  Later in Malaysia, they attracted more than 3,500 fans to queue up at the box office to fight for their tickets.  Most recently in Taiwan, where BIGBANG is immensely popular, all 22,000 tickets of their 2 shows were sold out within just a few hours.

BIGBANG consists of 5 members, G.Dragon, T.O.P, Seungri, Taeyang and Daesung.  Known for their unique music style and flamboyant fashion sense, BIGBANG is currently one of the most prominent Korean artists both locally and internationally. They have gained immense popularity and recognition amongst music lovers and fashionistas all over the world.
