Fans in Brisbane were excited to see leader of Big Bang "G- Dragon" also known as "Kwon Ji Yong" on Tuesday night. Many people who were lucky enough to get their hands on a VIP ticket arrived at the venue as early as 5am the morning of the show to secure the front zone of the stage. As time passed by more and more people excitedly made their way into the arena. Fans certainly found ways to kill time before heading into the concert hall by utilizing the merchandise stalls which indicated that there was plenty on offer for die-hard GD fans.
The team at Asian Pop Radio were honored to give away 50 double passes to the event and with our lucky winners we found ourselves in the rock zone area to the front of the stage. At 7.00pm it was time for the man of the hour to make an appearance for the first time in the Queensland capital. A mighty roar filled the stadium. GD was quick to show off the charisma and charm that his adoring fans worldwide had come to expect from him.
As the show progressed Brisbane fans felt a sense of love and thanks radiating from their beloved idol. G-dragon gave all he had, every moment of the performance on the night. There wasn't a person in the audience that did not cheer, sing along and soak up what they had been blessed with on this winter evening in Brissy. The Asian Pop Radio team looked across the dark venue and could see a beautiful yellow ocean of the VIPs which made some us get just a little choked up inside and reminded us of the last time GD graced us with his presence with fellow Big Bang members during their 2015 "MADE" World Tour.
M.O.T.T.E was powerful, energetic and soulful. It was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have personally had in a long time. G-dragon put in so much effort for this show to happen and we really appreciate his effort in doing that. His energy when he performed and his passion towards his fans is what makes the man so popular and we have every confidence he will continue to pull a crowd for years to come.
With the Sydney and now Brisbane concerts down, it leaves just one stop for G-dragon on his Australian leg of the tour as he makes his way to Melbourne this Saturday August 12 at Hisense Arena. VIPs in Melbourne do not want to miss out on this amazing opportunity to see him in action grab your tickets now via the Live Nation website. Asian Pop Radio will once again be there to cover the show, if you see us, come and say hi!
