According to YG Entertainment, the lines of fans started on the morning of July 21, despite extreme weather of 34 degrees Celsius and as the time for the concert came closer, they entertained themselves and cheered on their favorite idol group by singing "Fantastic Baby" in Korean.


When the concert started off with "Still Alive," the 10,000 fans all rose to their feet and chanted Big Bang's name, a remarkable sight and sign of Big Bang's popularity in China. Big Bang continued their streak with hits like "Tonight," "Hands Up," "Haru Haru," and "Monster," heating up the stadium in a matter of minutes. 

During the performance of 23 songs, the members all tried to communicate with the fans by showing them the Chinese phrases that they had prepared, whereas the fans were all able to sing along to Big Bang's songs in the original Korean.


The fans didn't leave until the idol group performed 3 encore songs and until Big Bang was physically away from the stadium, the fans did not stop chanting their name and encore. 

A fan named Yaoyao, who had GD written on her face, said, "I came a long way to Shanghai just to see Big Bang. I love their fashion style and their songs. This is the first Big Bang performance I've seen but I plan on going to the ones in other regions as well."


The 10,000 seats were sold out but the fans who weren't able to get tickets still participated in the overflowing energy of the party, singing along to the songs on the outskirts of the stadium. 

Big Bang will continue on to Guangzou's International Sports Arena on July 28 and will also draw 30,000 fans to the Beijing Mastercard Center on August 4.
