Can we get a double “whoop! whoop!” for this? BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon has once again set the Korean music scene abuzz with his revelation about the group’s upcoming comeback and a never-before-announced world tour.
Although the members have taken a break from promoting together as a group, the band has been touring a lot in Japan and the members have kept themselves occupied with their solo activities. G-Dragon briefly spoke about the band’s comeback plans at Seoul’s YG Family Concert earlier in August 2014 when he revealed that their new album will be released in the same month. However, the plan eventually fell apart and the release of their comeback album has become indefinite.
In November 2014, G-Dragon further revealed the band’s comeback plans in an interview, stating that all the members have been working on the songs for BIGBANG’s new album. He also revealed “Good Boy”, his latest single with Taeyang was initially made for BIGBANG but due to the members’ busy schedules, Taeyang and G-Dragon used the song for YG HIPHOP Project instead.
Having recently attended the Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris, Women’s Wear Daily managed to receive an inside scoop from the band’s leader who sat in the front row of the show next to A-List celebrities including Kristin Stewart, Vanessa Paradis, and Sean Penn.
WWD caught up with him for a quick chat and he told WWD that he is working on the group’s new album. BIGBANG is expected to make their comeback in the next few months because he further revealed that the group will be doing a world tour from April onwards.
Regarding the report, YG Entertainment responded by saying that the agency will make sure that both BIGBANG’s comeback and iKON‘s debut will happen in the first half of 2015. Taeyang of BIGBANG also hinted that the band will make a comeback when everyone least expects it. As the band has gone on a hiatus for almost 2 years, the band’s comeback will be their first time promoting as a 5-member boy group again since the release of the repackaged album “Still Alive.”
As of now, no further details about the world tour has been revealed. However, Taeyang is set to arrive in Malaysia next month for his solo concert world tour.
While the band’s comeback has been kept tightly under wraps, what do you think of their comeback concept will look like? Do you think they’ll include Malaysia again as part of their world tour? Share your excitement with us in the comments box below. 🙂
