Big Bang′s Daesung Helps G-Dragon with Osaka Concert Following a Leg Injury
After G-Dragon suffered from an injury during his concert in Osaka, Daesung rose to the occasion and popped up at his tour to help him out with his performance.
Daesung appeared as a special guest at the G-Dragon 2013 World Tour ~One of a Kind~ in Japan Dome Special held in Osaka′s Kyosera Dome on April 28.
During his first concert in Osaka held the day before on April 27, G-Dragon had sprained his ankle, and was told he needed two weeks of hospital treatment.
A rep from YG Entertainment had told enews about the injury on April 28 before the day′s concert, "[G-Dragon] hurt his leg on the stage of the Osaka Dome, but he still managed to wrap up his performance [for the first day]. He will be able to put on his show today after some rest."
G-Dragon did indeed put on a great show despite his injury. As he couldn′t walk properly, he used sticks and segways to move around onstage, and sang a total of 21 songs.
Daesung appeared as a surprise guest during the encore along with the original encore guest Taeyang to sing Bad Boy and Fantastic Baby with his two members.
When Taeyang asked Daesung, "You came from Tokyo because you were worried about G-Dragon, right?" he answered, "Yes, but G-Dragon is the only artist that can stand on such a great stage even when his leg hurts."
G-Dragon said through his Line account after his performance, "Thankfully! Today! The second show of Osaka came to a safe close. I want to thank all of you who were there today, and you were a big help. I sang harder than ever because I couldn′t move or perform much; how was it? For tomorrow′s last Osaka concert! I′ll work harder."
The last concert in Osaka to be held on April 29 will add to his audience to make a total of 150,000 across the three days he was in Osaka. From June 1-2 he will continue his tour at the Nagoya Dome.
