On July 5, 2NE1 opened up the first concert of the Japan leg of their second-ever solo world tour, “All or Nothing,” at Yokohama Arena for 17,000 fans in the audience.
According to Japanese media outlet Sankei Sports on July 6, the members shared their excitement and said that they were happy to see everyone and wanted to have fun with them, as they performed a total of 21 songs. 2NE1 got the crowd cheering with their impressive singing and dancing abilities.
The media outlet wrote, “During the concert, in response to a question asking where they would like to travel to on their world tour, CL chose Brazil, where the 2014 World Cup is currently being held. She said, ‘I want to have a live performance at a World Cup stadium one day.’”
Nikkan Sports also reported, “2NE1 released a new album ‘Crush’ and held their first solo concert in Japan after two years. Leader CL said, ‘Let’s enjoy ourselves and have fun,’ as they heated up the arena for two hours.” According to Nikkan Sports, Minzy told the fans, “We’re very sorry for making you wait for so long,” while Park Bom said, “Let’s really have fun.”
Previously, 2NE1 successfully completed the Indonesia, Philippines, and Malaysia stops of their “All or Nothing” world tour, and will be opening up the second night of their stop in Japan at Yokohama Arena on July 6.
Meanwhile, Park Bom was in attendance on this day and performed on stage with the rest of the 2NE1 members.
Popular girl group 2NE1 was in Singapore for their “2NE1 World Tour – All or Nothing” held on June 28. Hours before the concert was scheduled to start, the four members- CL, Minzy, Dara and Bom- made an appearance at an open press conference held in a shopping mall.
Ardent fans came with banners and posters. One fan was seen holding the sign asking CL to marry him while others screamed and shouted their names in a bid to get their attention. The fans were screaming so loudly that members of the media, the host and even 2NE1 themselves were struggling to hear the questions and answers during the press conference.
When asked how do they deal with haters, CL responded coolly, “We have to get better everyday for our fans instead of focusing on the haters.” Haters gonna hate, that’s the way to go 2NE1!
So does 2NE1 have any hidden talents that fans are not aware of? CL said all their fans know a lot about them because of “2NE1 TV”, so there is nothing that the fans do not know.
After completing their concert in Singapore, 2NE1 heads to Japan for their next “All or Nothing World Tour” concert on July 5 and 6, 12 and 13 at Yokohama and Kobe ,respectively.
South Korean girl group 2NE1 thrilled close to 3,000 fans at a press conference at Square 2 mall in Novena this afternoon.
The screaming fans filled the mall’s three story atrium, shouting and waving to group members CL, Bom, Minzy, and Dara.
The hip hop, dance pop group is on the Singapore leg of their 2NE1 World Tour, All Or Nothing, which includes stops in Taipei, Manila, and Kuala Lumpur.
The screams were so loud that media questions and the group’s responses, most of which came from lead singer CL and Dara, struggled to be heard during the 20 minute conference.
The group members said they were happy to be making their second visit to Singapore and thanked their fans for their warm welcome.
“Our fans in Singapore are really passionate, and were running after us last night at the airport. Thank you so much for your warm welcome. We love Singapore!” said Dara, who also thanked group member CL, who produced some of the songs on their latest album Crush.
“I am happy to have a new producer. We love her songs and she brings out the best in us,” she said.
Hundreds of fans had already formed a line outside the mall at 9am in the hopes of getting close to their favourite band, which will perform tonight at 7pm at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in front of about 7,500 people.
Ms Yi Ru, 16, was one of the early morning fans who had queued outside the mall since 9am. When the press conference started at 1.30pm, she had not had anything to eat nor taken a toilet break in order to hold her plum spot by the stage.
“It is worth it because I love them and I love all their songs. I cant wait to see them in concert,” she said.
