SEOUL, July 3 (Yonhap) — BIGBANG’s Taeyang will kick off his world concert tour with events in Japan this weekend, his management agency said Monday.
YG Entertainment said that Taeyang’s 2017 World Tour “White Night” will begin in Japan’s Chiba Prefecture on Saturday and Sunday, and head to Hyogo Prefecture on Aug. 5-6. After Japan, the tour will hit other Asian countries and English-speaking ones, it added.
But the full details of the tour have yet to be unveiled.
In 2014, Taeyang embarked on his first world tour “Rise,” in which he visited 18 cities in eight countries around the world. The tour drew a total of 117,000 fans, according to YG.
The 29-year-old singer became the first Bigbang member to release a solo album in 2008. He gained fame at home and abroad as a solo singer for “Eyes, Nose, Lips,” the title track of his second full-length album, “Rise.”
