2NE1 Kicks Off 2nd World Tour “For the First Time for Korean Girl Group”


– Starts in Seoul, Korea, in March Next Year ― Heightening Expectations

– Tour in 13 Cities in 9 Countries, Flooding Requests for Additional Concerts in Other Cities

Following the success of their first world tour last year that was the first-ever case for a Korean girl group, 2NE1 kicks off their second world tour in 1 year and three months.

2NE1 begins the world tour on March 1 and 2 next year, at Olympic Park’s SK Handball Hall, located in Bangi-dong, Seoul. In 2NE1’s second world tour, total 17 concerts will be held in 13 cities including Seoul, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Yokohama, in 9 countries including Korea, Japan, and China. However, there is a high chance of additional concerts, as 2NE1 is receiving a flood of offers for more concerts in other cities.

2NE1 is the only original hip-hop girl group in Korea, who has showcased a variety of new musical trials and produced a number of hit songs. Based on such achievements, 2NE1 has established itself as a special girl group who leads Korea’s music scene. In 2012, 2NE1 held the first-ever world tour concert for a Korean girl group under the title of “NEW EVOLUTION” and displayed their originality and talent to fans around the world. The concert drew all the more attention as it was produced in collaboration with LIVE NATION, the world-best production agency which produced world tour of Lady GaGa, Madonna, and U2, as well as world-famous staff.

2NE1’s first world tour was selected as one of the “Best Concerts of 2012” by New York Times of the United States, and 2NE1’s potential as a global performing artist was recognized.

The new world tour of 2NE1 is arousing more curiosity and expectations as its title and concept have not been disclosed yet. Since 2NE1 has shown a broadened musical spectrum and different colors during this year with three new songs “FALLING IN LOVE”, “DO YOU LOVE ME”, and “MISSING YOU”, they are expected to captivate fans around the world with their flagship unique songs, colorful stage costumes, and powerful performance on the stage of their new world tour.

Meanwhile, the updates of 2NE1’s 2014 world tour schedule will be posted on YG Family’s official web-site ( and 2NE1’s official Facebook account (

Ever since 2NE1 first debuted with its single ‘Fire’ in 2009, it has garnered huge success throughout Asia, firmly establishing its dominance on the K-pop music industry and is quickly breaking the barriers into the global market.

Formed by YG Entertainment, one of the largest artist management agencies in Korea, the group has become a style icon and inspiration for world-renowned designers such as Jeremy Scott and its unique and edgier style of music has attracted the attention of fans from all over the world, even from more prominent figures such as Will.I.Am of Black Eyed Peas.

The group consists of 4 talented girls with unique characteristics, CL, Minzy, Dara, and Bom. The name 2NE1 combines the phrases “21st century” and “new evolution”, and is pronounced “twenty-one” or “to anyone”.

Their debut EP album containing such mega-hit singles as ‘Fire’ and ‘I Don’t Care’ won them awards from various Award shows – including Mnet Asian Music Awards, and made them as the best selling artist in 2009.

In 2010, 2NE1 released their first studio and full length album To Anyone, which contains 12 tracks including ‘Clap Your Hands’ and ‘Can’t Nobody’.  The album hit #1 on the iTune’s Hip-hop chart, #7 on Billboard World Albums charts, #1 on HMV Japan, and on top of various charts in Korea.  Their follow-up singles, such as ‘Lonely’, ‘I Am the Best’, and ‘Ugly’ topped all major Korean charts and Japanese Oricon Chart as well and eventually won them the MTV IGGY BEST NEW BAND AWARD 2011.

News: 2NE1, First Korean Girl Group To Hold World Tour, “Seven Countries, Ten Cities”

2NE1, First Korean Girl Group To Hold World Tour, “Seven Countries, Ten Cities”

Girl group 2NE1 would be the first Korean girl group that would be having a world tour called “New Evolution.” Having already succesfully brought in 70,000 fans during their concert tour in Japan, the interest is already piling up for this world tour.

On the 13th, YG Entertainment said, “Following 2NE1’s concert on the 28th and 29th next month, at the Seoul Olympic Stadium in Korea, the group is planning to hold a world tour concert and perform in countries such as the United States and Europe, in a total of 10 cities in 7 different countries,” they revealed.

Ever since their debut in 2009, every song that they release become a hot topic to music fans. Last year, 2NE1 became more world-reknowned as they were named MTV IGGY’s “Best New Band In The World,” while France named them as the “Girl Group That Hallyu Fans Like The Most.”

When they started their first solo concert in Korea last year, 2NE1 epitomized “NOLZA” as they showcased their charismatic and powerful stages as the audience sang along to each of their performances, making it a massive success. This continued as they went on a concert tour in Japan, bringing in 70,000 people, marking it as a successful concert tour.

2NE1‘s world tour would be handled by Live Nation, the same company which will also handle labelmate Big Bang‘s world tour. The staff and world-wide network of the company are expected to work closely with 2NE1 for their first world tour.

An official from YG Entertainment said, “2NE1’s world tour would show how their skills on more elaborate and evolved stages, all members would be able to showcase their skills through their performances,” he said, “Each and every one of the staff who will be working together with the group has already worked with international pop stars. We will be announcing our future plans as well,” he revealed.

In addition, he says, “Right now, 2NE1’s world tour is planned to be held in 10 cities of 7 different countries, but there is a high possibility that more concerts would be held in more locations, if local officials in the countries request for it,” he said, showing the massive popularity of 2NE1 in the international market.

2NE1‘s first stop of their world tour “New Evolution” would be in our very own Seoul Olympics Gymnastics Stadium, on July 28 and 29.
