Japan Dome Tour was the fourth Japanese concert tour by South Korean band Big Bang. The tour visited six of Japan's major concert domes, making Big Bang the first foreign artists to headline their own six-Dome tour. One of the country's highest-grossing concert tours of the year, it grossed over US$70.6 million from sixteen shows, with all of the tickets for the tour sold out.[1]

Concert

The concert kicked off with the Japanese version of BIGBANG’s ‘Haru Haru’, and the song was followed by ‘My Heaven,’ BIGBANG’s debut single released in 2009, ‘Gara Gara Go’, which helped the group win the best new artist prize at Japan’s record awards ceremony. As the scale of the stadium is immense, BIGBANG used a flying stage that enables the entire stage to move, while also using a moving car that allows all five members to go closer to the fans. Such equipment fired up the Japanese fans, and the stadium was filled with enthusiasm. The three-hour long concert encompassed more than 30 songs, including encore and re-encore, and not a minute has passed without providing a source of entertainment to the fans.

Reception

The president of YG Entertainment Japan Yoshimi Watanabe explained in a press conference before the last concert of BIGBANG Japan six dome tour that BIGBANG is more than just a K-Pop stars, "BIGBANG is mostly seen as a global artist. Japanese music fans are mainly divided into two groups, those who like domestic music, and those who like Western music. And both of the two groups tend to like BIGBANG’s music and fashion." [2]
