Shin-hyuk drops a bomb, Hae Soo gets whipped

Korea’s iconic Kpop group Big Bang will be coming to Hawaii for their VIP Tour on Oct. 22 at the Neil Blaisdell Center. The Honolulu event is the only North American event scheduled so far. To date, there have been 21 shows in China, four shows in Hong Kong, two shows in Macao, two shows in Taipei, and one show in Kaohsiung.

More shows are scheduled in Kuala Lumpur (Oct. 1), Singapore (Oct. 2), Honolulu (Oct. 22) and Bangkok (Oct. 29-30). Unlike the traditional concerts, the “2016 BIGBANG MADE (V.I.P.) Tour” offers fans an interactive and unforgettable “fan meeting” experience with live engagements, games, and mini concert.

The promoter, Live Nation, says: “Main difference between fan meeting and concert is that fans are able to see more natural and mischievous Big Bang that can’t be seen during the full concert. During the fan meeting session, Big Bang members will joke on themselves and be more relaxing as they don’t need to show ‘charismatic’ Big Bang while they play games. Also, five lucky fans could get chance to play games together with Big Bang members on stage by being partners with Big Bang.”

There are three ticket tiers for this event: $219, $189 and $149. Both $219 and $189 tiers are now sold out, but $149 tickets are still available on For more tour or event information, visit or
