Eight cities added to Big Bang’s China tour

Korean boy band Big Bang will restart its tour of China next month followings its concerts there that drew tens of thousands of people earlier this year, the group’s agency said Wednesday.

In March, Big Bang met about 182,000 fans in “The 2016 BigBang MADE [V.I.P.] Tour” of eight Chinese cities. After China, the band started on a tour of four Japanese cities, which runs from April 22 to May 29.

The boys will resume the China tour in June in view of the enthusiastic support of their Chinese fans, but the tour will visit eight different cities that the band did not visit in March, YG Entertainment said.

About 110,000 members of Big Bang’s Chinese fan club V.I.P are expected to attend the fan meet events, according to the agency.

This time, the group will prepare games and other activities to entertain its fans as well as mini concerts, the agency said. (Yonhap)
