Currently on a global tour, South Korea’s five-member group schedules concerts on the East and West Coasts in November. Will the shows help bring K-pop into the U.S. mainstream? We’ll find out when tickets go on sale this weekend.
No doubt about it, K-pop is huge. These days South Korea looks as if it will run out of teens before it runs out of vocal groups dancing and singing their way into fans’ hearts.
And one of the biggest is Bigbang, which began its “Alive Galaxy” world tour in March and has sold out every country it has played in. Now G. Dragon, T.O.P., Seungri, Taeyang and Daesung will see if that box office magic will hold true for America as well when Bigbang plays Anaheim, Calif., at the Honda Center Nov. 3 and Newark, N.J., at the Prudential Center Nov. 9.
Tickets for both shows go on sale Sept. 22. Click here for more information about the Anaheim show and here for the Newark gig.
