Daesung to join YG Family for year-end concert
After months of laying low, Big Bang's Daesung will finally be re-joining his group at the end of this year.
YG Entertainment typically holds a YG Family concert around December, featuring all of the popular YG artists. This year is no exception with three concerts scheduled for Seoul (Olympic Hall) alone on December 3-4th, each show expected to draw in 40,000 fans. The group will then head to Japan for concerts on January 7-8 at the Osaka Colosseum expected to attract about 80,000 people. Finally, two more shows, each slating for another 80,000 concert-goers, will take place at the Saitama Super Arena on January 21-22.
This year will be all the more special as it is the 15th anniversary of YG Entertainment. Not only that, it's the first time for a YG Family concert to be held overseas since their 10 year anniversary.
Those lucky enough to catch the show can expect to see some of the biggest names in k-pop: Se7en, Gummy, Big Bang, 2NE1, PSY, Tablo, and more.
This will be the first time Daesung is stepping out into the public eye following his car accident in May which was initially linked with the death of a motorcyclist. However, with his fellow group mate G-dragon under fire for marijuana usage, it's not yet clear if the group's leader will also be joining in on the festivities.
Ticket sales will start October 27th.
