Big Bang’s popularity in Japan is proven in various ways. The recent Japan tour drew in an audience of 250,000 and recorded a sell-out on all of the performances. Following the popularity of the group, members are now beginning their solo career, such as Seungri announcing his solo activities in Japan until September through appearances in various music programs.

Big Bang is now on gear to begin the rest of their world tour. Big Bang will visit China for their first performance beginning on July 21 at Mercedez Benz Center in Shanghai, to Guangzou on July 28 at International Sports Arena and Beijing on August 4 at Mastercard Center.

Big Bang will also tour Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, and Hong Kong in Asia. Then continue on to San Paulo, Brazil and Lima, Peru but the dates have not yet been announced. They also plan to tour to Europe this winter.
