It doesn’t seem that long ago we were reporting that K-pop boy group B.A.P would be gracing the UK as part of their “Live On Earth” world tour. And with all the commotion surrounding their long break from the industry (yes, one year in the K-pop world is a long time for inactivity), there didn’t seem too much hope of the boys returning to the UK any time soon, nor that they would embark on another world tour.
But we have some good news!
B.A.P’s managing company, TS Entertainment, has just announced on its official Facebook page that the boys are ready to dominate even more countries, to perform for even more fans and to hold even more shows. The members will be embarking on a 15-country, 30-show, 200,000-fan world tour titled “B.A.P Live On Earth: Awake”.
A teaser trailer was released to excite every Baby (B.A.P’s fanclub name) which revealed that Germany, the UK, Poland and Russia will be some of the key stops for the tour. They will also be visiting USA, Mexico, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Taipei, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, China and of course Korea. But teasing fans even more was the information that the tour will begin in February and that more countries will be added at a later date.
If their previous concert that I caught is anything to go by, I am more than 100% sure that these new concerts are going to be unmissable. When the group came to London in 2014 there was a huge buzz amongst the crowd; the screams and singing were deafening, and the crowd participation was on point. The concert itself was highly anticipated by European K-pop fans, and B.A.P certainly delivered one very memorable event.
Be sure to keep checking back to MCM Buzz for updates about the B.A.P concert, and for any K-pop concerts coming to Europe. And be sure to show your love and support for B.A.P’s most recent release from their Matrix album: “Young, Wild & Free” below.
