10,000 Thai Fans Flock to Watch Big Bang Live

Group Big Bang successfully wrapped up a recent concert in Thailand, followed by equally-successful concerts in Korea and Japan.

Big Bang’s management agency YG Entertainment said Big Bang held a concert entitled ‘Global Warning Tour’ at the Huamark Indoor Stadium in Bangkok, Thailand on August 7. The agency said although it was the group’s first-ever concert in Thailand, some 10,000 local fans gathered to watch their favorite Korean group perform. According to YG Entertainment, the entire audience gave them a standing ovation from the start of the show. The agency also said some 20 fans fainted during the concert and received first aid treatment from paramedics.
Big Bang’s popularity in Thailand rivals that of Korea’s. Since the group released its first studio album in Thailand in September last year, a total of four songs, including ‘Dirty Cash’, ‘Lies’, ‘Always’ and ‘Last Goodbye’ nabbed number one spots on Thailand’s MTV International Music Chart.

After the concert, the members thanked the audience in Thai saying it was an exhilarating concert and that they hoped to one day release a Thai version of their album. A number of music industry personnel, including the president of Sony Music Thailand, attended the concert. Diehard from neighboring countries, including Singapore, Hong Kong and Vietnam also traveled to Bangkok to attend the concert.
