B2ST Wraps Up Promotions for ’12:30’ with Unplugged Concert
B2ST has wrapped up promotions for 12:30 with an unplugged concert.
Winning first place once again on a music program with the special mini 7th album title song 12:30 on November 9, B2ST held B2ST Unplugged Concert on the same day in AX Hall, Gwangjang-dong.
As it was the concert that presented B2ST’s sentimental live performances, it has been reported that about 70,000 fans sent in requests to attend the event. Only 5,000 fans were selected to attend the concert, which presented B2ST’s dramatic live performances and entertaining talk sessions in a private atmosphere.
Starting with the title song 12:30, which was number one on music programs of the three major channels for two weeks in a row, B2ST performed hits, such as Midnight, Lightless, No More, On Rainy Days and more along with a band.
B2ST also performed the other 7th mini album tracks, such as Drive, So Hot and It’s All Good, which were lined up on top of the music charts along with 12:30.
B2ST showed its outstanding live performance, catching the audience’s attention with the six members’ harmony and voices along with a live band, without any fancy stages or performances. Unable to hide their instinct as dancers, the members responded to the fans, grooving along in each song.
Meanwhile, the B2ST members held a talk session hosted by MC Son Dong Woon, during which the members read the stories sent in by the fans and once the concert was over they took group pictures, taking care of each and every fan.
The members didn’t forget to thank the fans for showing support for their three-week-long special album promotional activities, which were held in celebration of their 5th anniversary. Towards the end of the concert, B2ST said, “2014 was a very warm and happy year for B2ST. We are so thankful since we were able to get to this place thanks to all of your love.”
B2ST won first place on three major music programs for two weeks in a row for 12:30, which it promoted for about three weeks, wining a total of seven trophies. B2ST’s 12:30 is still placed high on the music charts, about 20 days since the release, and it topped ten music charts as well as the album charts as soon as it was released.
Having made record setting achievements with two promotional activities this year, B2ST will be launching a five-city arena tour in Japan, carrying out its activities in and out of Korea.
