Big Bang Ends 10th Anniversary Tour In Hong Kong Concert
Korea's biggest hip hop boy band Big Bang just concluded their 10th-anniversary tour in Hong Kong just before rapper T.O.P. leaves for his military service.
Big Bang spent the last weekend with two-day performances in Hong Kong. This marks the end of their 10th-anniversary tour "0.TO.10" which included 24 shows in six cities attended by 1,120,000 fans from all across the globe.
The show kicked off with one of their earliest songs "Heaven" and also included their past hits "Last Farewell," "Lies" and "BAE BAE."
"This is our largest-scale performance in Hong Kong, and it's our first time performing outside," allkpop quoted Big Bang as saying during their concert in Hong Kong. "Thanks to everyone for being with us here. Let's enjoy our 10th-anniversary concert."
T.O.P. posted a video on Instagram after their concert Sunday night to bid his fans another touching farewell message.
"I'll miss you a lot," wrote T.O.P. in English.
Then he wrote in Korean, "Thank you, everyone. I will really miss you a lot. I'll come back as a more mature person because of that longing. I'm happy."
The 29-year-old Big Bang member also bid his Japanese fans a similar message after they wrapped up their Japan concert last month.
"Goodbye for now," wrote the rapper in Japanese in a post on Instagram. "Please stay healthy. I will miss you a lot. I'll mature with that longing and come back again."
"Good night V.I.P Japan," he added.
T.O.P. will temporarily be gone from the limelight in about two years as he enlists for their mandatory military service on February 9.
The band's management label YG Entertainment announced that G-Dragon and Taeyang will be releasing their individual solo albums later this year while Daesung and Seungri also work on their solo activities.
G-Dragon and Taeyang, both 28, will register for military service this year while Daesung and Seungri would follow next year.
