Big Bang recently held concerts in the UK

Big Bang recently held concerts in the UK successfully.

They held concerts at the London Wembley Arena on December 14 and 15 as part of their world tour titled, Alive Galaxy Tour 2012, attracting 24,000 people in total.

Big Bang were the first Korean singing group to hold concerts at the concert hall, where such world-famous musicians as The Beatles, ABBA, and Beyonce have held their concerts.

Big Bang were originally planning to hold just one concert on December 15. However, one more concert was added on December 14 at the request of many fans in the country. Tickets for the December 14 concert were also quickly sold out.

Big Bang visited the UK for the first time last year when they received the Worldwide Act Award at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards, held in Northern Ireland. Within a year, they proved their increased popularity in the country by holding concerts in the London Wembley Arena.

Starting in Seoul in March last year, Big Bang have toured such Asian countries as Japan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia, and such American and European countries as the U.S., Peru, and the UK. The number of concerts and the scale of the tour are the biggest among those of all Korean singers or singing groups.

Big Bang will hold more concerts at the Fukuoka Dome in Japan on December 22, at the Kyocera Dome in Japan on January 12 and 13, and at the Gymnastics Stadium in the Olympic Park in Korea from January 25 to 27.
