BIGBANG concluded their world tour in the U.S successfully their New Jersey concerts on November 8th and 9th after their Los Angeles concerts the previous week.
Over 48,000 fans were in attendance for their concerts, as BIGBANG became the best-selling Korean artists ever for a concert with this achievement.
The success was especially meaningful in that the weather conditions were not favorable in New Jersey during the time.
New Jersey was one of the states greatly affected by Hurricane Sandy with some in the state still feeling the aftereffects. The day before Big Bang’s concert, New Jersey was hit by a nor’easter which made even transportation a challenge for the group. But thankfully, the enthusiasm and passion of the fans never waned and they were rewarded time and time again with thrilling performances by the BIGBANG members.
Many local media like CNN, TIME Magazine, New York Times, Billboard, FUSE TV, SPIN, and others all carried reports on BIGBANG’s concert progression.
The sell-out of their ‘Alive Galaxy Tour 2012’ concerts also certified the group’s insane popularity in the States.
BIGBANG increased their visual appeal with the stage outfits especially created for the tour, performing some 23 songs including their hit songs like ‘Still Alive’, ‘Lies’, ‘Haru Haru’, ‘Heaven’ and ‘Fantastic Baby’ as well as some of the solo songs by the members for an exciting concert.
Meanwhile, BIGBANG will end their tour of the American continent with a concert in Peru on November 14th. Thereafter, BIGBANG will continue with their world tour with stops in Hong Kong, England, and Japan.
