Concert organisers Running Into The Sun and Woohoo! Experience are pleased to announce that they will be bringing highly-acclaimed K-Pop solo artiste, G-Dragon, to Malaysia as part of his G-DRAGON 2013 WORLD TOUR: ONE OF A KIND concert tour. The leader of global superstars BIGBANG who put on an explosive performance here at their one-night only concert last year, is back with his first-ever solo concert in Malaysia, to be held at Stadium Nasional on 22 June 2013 (Saturday), 8pm.
This will be the only outdoor concert of his tour, and Malaysian fans can look forward to an exhilarating night of high-energy performances bolstered by this unique open-air experience.
The G-DRAGON 2013 WORLD TOUR : ONE OF A KIND concert tour is G-Dragon’s second solo concert tour and first world tour, and will feature songs from his latest solo release – One of a Kind – which ranks as the top-selling solo album in Korea after “Heartbreaker”, G-Dragon’s first solo album in 2009.
One of a Kind produced two chart-topping hits – “Crayon” and “That XX” – with the latter dominating the major online Korean music charts shortly after its release:

Apart from being a celebrated composer, lyricist and producer, G-Dragon is a widely-regarded fashionista, winning numerous accolades for his fashion style, and has also achieved the distinction of being the only male to feature on CNN’s “50 reasons why Seoul is the world’s greatest city” list. Constantly proving his mettle for producing chart-topping hits, G-Dragon has won various awards for his music including the Digital Bonsang for “One of a Kind” at the recent Samsung GALAXY The 27th Golden Disk Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Korea’s equivalent of the Grammy Awards.
The G-DRAGON 2013 WORLD TOUR : ONE OF A KIND concert tour kicked off in Seoul on 30th Mar 2013 at the Olympics Gymnastics Arena, with confirmed stops in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia. This tour also marks the first time that a Korean solo artiste will be holding concerts in four of Japan’s domes.
