Big Bang Postpones Their Toyko/Yokohama Tour.
Big Bang was originally scheduled to begin their Japanese tour in May, but plans have changed, as YG Entertainment has just announced that they’ll be postponing their stops in Tokyo and Yokohama. Starting in Osaka on May 10th and 11th, the boys will be moving onto Chiba for the 13th through 15th, and then Nagoya for the 17th and 19th.
YGE’s representatives spoke through Star News and revealed,“In an effort to support their Japanese fans after the natural disasters that occurred in March, all of the Big Bang members genuinely wish to hold all of the concerts. Unfortunately, due to the aftershock of those disasters, we have decided to reflect the concerns of the Korean fans who have expressed uncertainty with Big Bang’s safety. We will not be opening tickets for Tokyo and Yokohama, and they will be postponed.”
They continued, “In the case of Osaka, Chiba, and Nagoya, tickets have already been sold, and in order to keep their promise to their fans, Big Bang has decided to go ahead and open their concert. Our representatives have already visited the concert halls twice to make sure that the boys will be safe and protected.”
Leader G-Dragon also previously stated that a portion of the income the members will be receiving from this tour will be donated towards relief efforts in Japan.
