The girl group was first of its kind to ever stage a world tour concert in Malaysia, agency YG Entertainment said. The first Malaysian concert was in 2012, when the members of 2NE1 -- CL, Park Bom, Dara and Minzy -- staged their first world tour, “New Evolution.”
2NE1, also famous for its funky fashion style, came on stage and kicked off the concert with its second EP “Crush.”
The world tour concert was arranged by international choreographer and director Travis Payne and Stacy Walker, who also led the previous world tour in 2012. Live Nation Entertainment, the organizer of the world tour, has also organized shows for multiple world-class singers, such as Lady Gaga and Madonna.
Creative and ornate screens continued to play behind the passionate singers on the stage as they performed “Come Back Home,” “Gotta Be You,” “Scream” and other songs from second EP. The K-pop artists performed a total of 21 hit songs, including “I Don’t Care” and “I am the Best.”
Malaysian fans danced and sang along to the songs in Korean, adding to the heated excitement of the concert.
Dara expressed her gratitude toward her participative fans on Twitter, saying, “Thank you so much, Malaysia Black Jack. It was so much fun tonight. I love you.” Black Jack is the name of 2NE1’s fan club.
The next leg of 2NE1’s world tour is in Jakarta, Indonesia, on June 8.
