Big Bang has recently ranked 4th on Philippines list of ‘Top 12 Most Popular Concerts in 2012′ , and now their ‘Alive Galaxy Tour‘, as well as 2NE1‘s ‘New Evolution‘, were chosen by the pop and jazz critics of The New York Times as part of the ‘Best Concerts of 2012’ !
The critics explained their choice: ‘2NE1 Aug. 17, and BIGBANG Nov. 8, both at Prudential Center, Newark. This was the year K-pop arrived — not in the form of “Gangnam Style,” which was everywhere and yet completely evanescent — but in these arena shows, which were full of thousands of young, paying fans eager to see the girls of 2NE1 and the boys of BigBang, groups with zero American hits between them, but rabid American followings all the same.’
Big Bang’s and 2NE1’s concerts were chosen alongside artists such as Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Radiohead, The Rolling Stones and more. They are the only Koreans that were ranked on the list.
Congratulations to Big Bang and 2NE1!
