News: YG Life – 2NE1 Holds Official After-Party For Japan Tour: Beyond Imagination

I wonder how “special” this after party is. Lucky Japanese Blackjacks! ^_^

2NE1 Holds Official After-Party For Japan Tour: Beyond Imagination

type-b

[스타뉴스 윤상근 기자] 2NE1 announced that they will be holding an official after-party inJapan in celebration of their tour in the neighboring country.

After they release their Japanese version of “CRUSH” on June 25—for the first time in about 2 years—they are to kick off their World Tour “ALL OR NOTHING” at Yokohama Arena on July 5 and 6, and at Kobe World Memorial Hall on July 12 and 13. When the concert comes to an end, they are going to keep up with the heat by holding after-parties in Tokyo Sound Museum Vision on July 6, and in Osaka Umeda on July 13.

2NE1 aroused much attention when they invited fellow YG artists BIGBANG and other famous artists along with their fans to the after-party when they finished their concert in Korea in March. Despite the late hours of the party, a huge number of fans swarmed in and waited in a long line.

2NE1, who even showed an impromptu performance back then, decided to hold another one in Japan to have some special bonding time with the local fans and related staffers. It is even rare in Japan for an artist to hold an after-party in which they personally participate. Thus the Japanese party is expected to be a premier event, as it will attract fans beyond imagination.

The quartet’s Japanese version of “CRUSH” is consisted of visual contents that are different to those of their Korean version, while it will also include the Japanese version of their M/V.

As this is their first Japanese album in 2 years, the album will be filled with 2NE1’s charms. Currently in the middle of “ALL OR NOTHING” tour, 2NE1 will be in Jakarta, Indonesia on June 8 at Mata Elang International Stadium to meet with the local fans.
