Big Bang began a successful start to the American leg of their ‘ALIVE Galaxy Tour 2012‘ at the Honda Center in Orange County, California.
After selling out seats in Japan, Taiwan, China, and other tour locations, the hip-hop idol group continued their winning streak by selling out all available seats on the West Coast stop for their world tour, despite having never officially promoted in the States.
Also, Big Bang’s Honda Center concert was the largest concert in America pulled off by a single K-Pop artist, adding another veneer to their successful American tour kickoff.
The concert drew its fair share of celebrities as well, including cast members from the hit show ‘Glee‘, Harry Shum Jr. and Kevin McHale.
Big Bang performed a total of 23 tracks during the course of their concert, starting with “Still Alive” and rolling through a repertoire of their biggest hit songs, such as “Lies”, “Haru Haru“, and “Fantastic Baby“. G-Dragon also unveiled an English rap and remix version of his newest effort “Crayon“.
In addition on both nights, fans joined the members in singing Happy Birthday to the group’s rapper, T.O.P. On day two the Big Bang members also presented T.O.P with a large birthday cake.
Following their successful California concerts, Big Bang is scheduled to cross into New Jersey, where they will yet again play to a sold-out audience at the Prudential Center.
