2NE1 held its first exclusive concert in New Jersey.

On August 17, 2NE1 continued its global tour New Evolution concert at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

To see the concert, fans arrived early and overcrowded the area, showing a lot of interest and attention for the group.

Due to a system error, the concert started a bit later than planned, but as soon as the opening video played, the fans seemed to forget about the wait and began cheering, welcoming 2NE1 to the stage.

The concert began with 2NE1’s hit song I Am the Best, which received a lot of love from both Korea and the rest of the world. As expected, everyone from the audience got up and began to dance, turning the concert arena into a club.

Following I Am the Best, the 2NE1 members performed Fire, Clap Your Hands, I Don’t Care, Don’t Stop the Music and more, continuously exciting the fans.

The 2NE1 members then followed it up with their individual performances. CL transformed into a DJ and dropped a number of beats, changing the entire arena into a club. Park Bom flaunted her beautiful vocals by singing You and I. Minzy took the stage with a powerful solo dance performance and Sandara Park exhibited a special stage of Kiss, involving the audience.

Following the solo performances, 2NE1 sang It Hurts, I Love You and Lonely, toning down the energy with some slow ballads that still left a powerful impact.

After two hours with 23 songs, the 2NE1 members successfully completed their first concert.

In 2011, 2NE1 was crowned MTV Iggy’s ‘Best New Band’ and was able to successfully open up a concert in America after only a year. 2NE1 will now be heading to Los Angeles for its second and last US concert for 2012 on August 24 at the Nokia Theater.

Meanwhile, 2NE1 will be visiting the Facebook Headquarters on August 22 and having a special Q&A session with fans at the Facebook Live event, becoming the first Asian artists to do so.
