Korea’s top solo artist and member of BIGBANG, main vocalist, TAEYANG, announced his second world tour WHITE NIGHT.
Due to T.O.P‘s drug scandal, it seems apparent that it’s hard time for BIGBANG, however, G-Dragon is successfully touring around the world. Also, G-Dragon‘s solo album made a big hit and he showed his power to make his fans relaxed. In this time, TaeYang’s turn comes. It’s time for TaeYang to make sure for fans that there’s no need to worry about BIGBANG’s future. Besides, because of T.O.P’s lack, it looks impossible to have a group activity, so for them it’s more sensible to have solo activities. Additionally, TaeYang’s time before joining the army in Korea is getting shorter. Maybe it will be the last opportunity for TaeYang to have an world tour before entering army service. Serving army service in Korea is mandatory and also its term is at least 22 months, so there would be a long gap after that.
YG entertainment announced ‘WHITE NIGHT’ will be held in 8 cities in US and Canada on official SNS. TaeYang already had toured abroad as ‘RISE’ world tour, however, he didn’t visit North America. So it’s TaeYang’s the first concert in North America, and YG entertainment is going to add nations and cities where ‘WHITE NIGHT’ will be held.
World tour title ‘WHITE NIGHT’ means TaeYang himself, who has steadily walked along passionate road of music for a long time, and he is going to greet fans with his perfectly skilled stage manners and hit songs so far.
TaeYang’s 1st World Tour in North America “WHITE NIGHT” will be held at the following cities:
- Toronto, ON (International Centre) : August 30
