Big Bang’s Daesung Captivates Over 26,000 During Japan Solo Arena Tour Encore Concert
Big Bang’s Daesung launched his solo Japanese arena tour encore concert over two days, gathering over 26,000 fans.
After successfully completing his solo arena tour D-Lite DLive 2014 in Japan D’slove in 2014, gathering 170,000 fans to 15 concerts in eight cities, Daesung launched the encore concert Encore!! 3D Tour [D-Lite DLive D’slove] on January 31 and February 1 in Yoyogi National Gymnasium.
Although it was an encore concert, Daesung added new songs from the first original album D’slove, which he had not performed during the tour, presenting a concert with new content.
During the February 1 Tokyo concert, Linda Yamamoto, who is the original singer of the song Donimo Tomaranai, made a surprise appearance.
Daesung covered the Japanese hit Donimo Tomaranai and included it in his mini album D-Lite, which was released in October 2014, leading to the collaboration performance with Linda Yamamoto.
At the time, Linda Yamamoto had said, “I’m happy that you sang Donimo Tomaranai with good feelings. I enjoyed the chorus and please enjoy singing the song on stage too. Should I dance as I join you?” expressing her support for the Big Bang member.
She gladly accepted the offer to appear in Daesung’s encore concert, performing on stage.
While singing Donimo Tomaranai, Daesung shouted “Linda Yamamoto” and the singer appeared on stage, showing perfect teamwork, which made it hard to believe it was their first time performing together. They thrilled over 13,000 audience members.
Having successfully completed his Tokyo concert, Daesung will be wrapping up his encore concert by performing in Osaka-ko Hall on February 10 and 11.
