In conversations with fans at the 2NE1 New Evolution Los Angeles concert, it was found out that a good number of people we spoke with mentioned Big Bang as the reason behind getting into the KPop and 2NE1 hype. During their Facebook HQ Live Chat, 2NE1 leader CL mentioned that Big Bang is family to them and therefore share a very close relationship to them akin to brotherhood. This relationship is clearly being felt by loyal listeners as Big Bang fans also turn into being fans of 2NE1.

Big Bang is to follow 2NE1 with their solo concert in Southern California soon. The date of their Alive Tour Southern California stop has been set for November 3rd. Fans can expect familiar faces from the 2NE1 audience then.
