BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour 2012

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour 2012

The day to see BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour finally arrived! I was particularly excited to watch the dynamic K-pop group in person as they seemed to be one of the hottest K-pop acts around and moreover, their fashion sense is as funky as it can get – which is so cool! Furthermore, these boys can really sing, dance and produce their own songs, unlike the ubiquitous Korean ‘plastic dolls’ that look good, act cute and sound like silicone. Ewww.

Ooh, the anticipation is building up as I entered the concert venue. I’m going into galaxy!

I went on the second day of the two-day concert on 29 September 2012. The concert started at 7pm which I thought it was early compared to the usual 8pm starting time. That said, I heard that fans started queuing up a day before outside the stadium to secure the best moshpit spots. I think I was pretty comfy with my tiered seating accompanied with my zoom lens – still can see well! And it was a night I thought I saw stars in the galaxy – five very colourful stars made up of G-Dragon (I wanna share wardrobe with you!), Taeyang (You made my nose bleed the whole night!), T.O.P (Your voice blew me away!), Daesung (I love whatever you do!) and Seungri (You are so full of crap, haha!).

Fans queuing up to buy official fan merchandise before the start of the concert. I heard the Samsung booth were giving away free hair extensions and photo prints too.

This being the group’s (who won Best Worldwide Act – MTV Europe Music Awards 2011) first-ever world tour, and Singapore being the first stop in the South-east Asian leg, I have a feeling the boys were just about as excited as their fans. They belted out over 20 of their songs from their six-year discography, and seemed reluctant to leave after the concert ended, basking in the limelight and fan adoration. The boys, especially Taeyang and G-Dragon, were made for the stage. And if you thought their concert vaguely reminded you of Lady Gaga’s, well you are right – it is produced by Live Nation, with Lady Gaga Monster Ball choreographer Laurieann Gibson as creative director.

BIGBANG continues on their world tour to Bangkok, Jakarta, Taipei, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. They will also perform in Los Angeles, New Jersey, Peru, Brazil and London. Here’s wishing them an astronomically successful world tour with more concerts to come. Come back to Singapore soon! We love you!

A sea of lighted yellow crowns await the start of the concert. Once the giant white curtain dropped, screams pierced through the ceiling. And I went momentarily deaf.

As soon as the giant curtain dropped, BIGBANG appeared in five space capsules amidst fire pyrotechnics and started the night with their 2011 EP title son “Tonight”.

Wowing the fans with nifty moves

The more sedate duo Seungri and Daesung. These two are more similar to earthlings.

G-Dragon the leader with a wardrobe to die for. I want everything he wears.

T.O.P. performed in a heavily bandaged hand. He injured his hand while filming K-drama ‘Alumnus’. Awww so poor thing. He garnered the most screams everytime he sang. I must say he looked pretty charming. *swoon*

The livewire lives up to his name Taeyang = sun. Love his glittering Loubies sneakers!

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour 2012

The ever-friendly Daesung. I fell in love with him when I first saw him in K-drama What’s Up – his vocals are so powerful. I find his blockhead persona super cute.

Seungri, Taeyang and Daesung chatting. It was a pity they were not as good in English, cos’ the chat seemed painfully rehearsed around key English words like “Merlion”, “Marina Bay”, “Chili crab” and “Pepper crab”. It was kinda funny when Daesung said Merlion was his best friend on Facebook, and Merlion uses a Samsung Galaxy S3. Looks like Samsung got the right brand ambassadors who knew how to promote its products! LOL

T.O.P. and G-Dragon team up for a song. I thought they looked pretty cool sitting up there.

G-Dragon can sing, and in ANY sort of position – even lying down. That’s a treadmill by the way, so it was really cool to see him moving along the stage while lying there.

The many poses of G-Dragon

Here’s a song for you:

Ever-expressive G-Dargon

Hello BOY!

I think T.O.P. is trying to hide his charm behind those geeky glasses. Look at the poor guy’s bandaged hand. It must have hurt a lot…

What’s a pink dinosaur doing at the concert?!

Daesung emulating a Michael Jackson? Love his skeleton-print leather gloves. I want I want.

Taeyang sends the girls into a frenzy when he tore up his shirt to expose his upper torso. Oh Adonis, you make me drool!

Daesung dons wings and flies high above the audience in his solo performance. He reminded me of a Victoria’s Secret model. If only Victoria’s Secret annual show included male models like Daesung. Yumz *drool*

Here’s another song:

Daesung getting teased about his leather body harness by the boys. T.O.P. tried to take the leather ‘bra’  off a giggling Daesung. Great to see the boys enjoying themselves.

I took the most photos of Taeyang that night, cos’ the guy really knows how to pose.

Seungri doing a Gangnam-style dance. He was full of crap that night!

Someone threw a panda toy up, and Seungri happily played mummy to it.

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour Singapore 2012

Yes, Thank you BIGBANG!

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour Singapore 2012

This guy obviously doesn’t like to wear clothes. He took off his top at least three times that night. If I fainted from dehydration, I would send him my medical bill, cos’ he made me drool all night! I love a guy with a cross, so sexy…

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour Singapore 2012

G-Dragon loves the treadmill, lying down on it again.

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour Singapore 2012

T.O.P. dons horns and glow glasses. Nah, he doesn’t look horny at all.

BIGBANG Alive Galaxy Tour Singapore 2012

Daesung takes a sip of water, and splashes it towards a screaming audience.

Awww…the concert came to an end after two hours.
