Big Bang is done with the ASEAN and American legs of its Alive Tour having completed performances in Singapore, Bangkok, Jakarta, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Anaheim, Newark and Lima . Reviews for the tour have been positive from both fans and the press – mostly lauding the show as fun, energetic and involving.
It’s especially thrilling for fans who get to experience Big Bang’s interactive and playful style in person for the first time. Wishing the boys the best for the rest of the tour and all the fans the best concert experience!
We haven’t been posting photos since the look of the show is very similar from one show to the other (and there are just too many amazing photos…) For those who want a glimpse of Taeyang over the past 3 months you can check out the extensive tour photo coverage on Planet YB.
LOAM and WD of course (in all the countries)!

YB, SR and DS doing the ments and opening for GD&Top. YB’s english is adorable as is SR and DS’s and the “D-T-V” trio never failed to charm whether it was making friends with Merlion, shouting random phrases in Thai or Bahasa, doing an audience call and response or scolding the standing audience for pushing against each other too much. Their interaction is a highlight of every show, especially when they tease each other.

The encores have become huge fanservice events with each of the members breaking out to play – dousing the crowd and each other with water, playing with audience gifts and performing running, sitting and lying down. Shirtless YB always took the opportunity to go into the audience (sometimes getting his flirt on haha) and it’s a running gag that he never wants to leave the stage even though everyone is exhausted. Energizer Bunny indeed.

Taeyang during the entire Nov 3 Anaheim encore (kpopcouchcrew):
He’s given away his shirts, towels, varsity jackets, water bottles and even the horn off the how-gee bike to fans in the audience.

Dream come true for A YB fan: A must read fan account.
And what would life be without the odd wardrobe malfunctions – like losing his accessories during his somersault (and a rather spectacular pants rip in Taiwan.)

Loses his bandana in Jakarta (carefreeangel)
Of course there were also the parts outside of the concert where fans get a little extra thrill over tweets about the guys hanging out at the hotel in the afternoon before performances. Taeyang was into a Nerf gun phase and GDYB has been tweeting and RTing themselves hanging out and enjoying the hot weather in the pool while Hwangssabu done his share with some choice exercise pics. Hopefully they get a chance to travel around for fun another time and get to see more than the hotel!
Any other favorite Taeyang memories from the Alive Tour? We”d love to hear your fanaccounts – share it in the comments!
