2NE1’s first overseas concert for the second world tour “All or Nothing,” held in Hong Kong, drew in over 8,000 Blackjacks resulting in grand success.
On March 22nd, the concert opened at the Hong Kong Asia World Expo Arena with 2NE1’s second full length album “Crush.” Moments after they appeared on stage, the girls had all of the attention on them with their charisma, wearing militia inspired clothing in a flashy golden tone.
2NE1 spiced up the atmosphere at the concert arena, singing their hit songs with powerful performances such as, “Fire,” “Clap Your Hands” and “Pretty Boy.” Of course, the girls also showed their softer side, leaving fans emotional with other tunes like “Missing You,” “If I Were You,” and the unplugged version of “Come Back Home.” These songs in particular really showcased each members’ unique voices and talents.
Once they started “I Love You,” the girls picked 4 male audience members on the spot and invited them on stage, doing the same sexy dance they did on Yoo Hee-yeol’s Sketchbook on KBS 2TV.
Enthusiastically, Hong Kong fans welcomed the girls, who came to perform and sing after two years. They sang along to all 18 songs, including the new songs from “Crush” such as “Come Back Home,” “Gotta Be You,” “Scream,” as well as “I Am the Best,” and “I Don’t Care” in Korean.
As a surprise event, the fans also sang happy birthday to Park Bom (which was on the 24th) and touched the members’ hearts by throwing 2NE1’s favorite stuffed animals and dolls onto the stage during the closing performance.
To add to the element of surprise, WINNER stopped by and performed their tunes, “Go Up” and “Just Another Boy,” leaving fans speechless and over enthused!
Upon completion of the seemingly successful concert, the girls traveled immediately back to Korea to appear on SBS’s Inkigayo on March 23rd to sing “Come Back Home” in attempts to hold down the No.1 spot which they’ve held for two weeks since March 16th.
Their next stop is Shanghai on April 11th! Shanghai Blackjacks are you excited?
