[COVER] Taeyang leaves heartfelt messages at his RISE World Tour in Singapore


Korean superstar Taeyang made headlines and took Singapore by storm at his explosive solo concert last Sunday (8th Feb), attracting over 4,000 eager fans in attendance at the Singapore Expo Hall 3. Despite performing alone as one-fifth of BIG BANG, the cheers and screams for the solo star certainly did not lose to the group.


Arrived in Singapore only on the morning of the concert day itself after concluding his Malaysia tour a day before, Taeyang revealed that he “took a bus here” because he “didn’t like (the idea of) taking air planes nowadays” and jokingly added that he “didn’t know it (the journey) was that far”. Fans were treated to eye-opening performances of ‘Body‘, ‘Superstar‘ and ‘Move‘, some classic tracks from his first solo album, Solar.


Standing on stage with his keyboard, Taeyang continued with ballad track ‘You’re My‘ and moved on to ‘I Need A Girl‘, surprising the audience as he picked a lucky female fan to join him on stage during the latter performance. All envied eyes were on the couple as Taeyang popped the questions, “Do you have a boyfriend?”, “Can I be your boyfriend tonight?” as he gained the permission to dance with the female fan.


If that’s not enough to send hearts fluttering, fans were serenaded next with ‘Eyes, Nose, Lips‘ as Taeyang mesmerized the audience with his bright vocals, followed by hot favourite hits ‘Only Look At Me‘ and ‘Wedding Dress‘, to which the star stripped his top at the end of the performance!


Leaving heartwarming messages in the midst of the concert, Taeyang let out his honest feelings about having his first solo world tour, revealing that it took him 4 years to produce the RISE solo album.

“Everyday for 4 years, I have been waiting for this moment right now. Even when I was at home, in the toilet or sleeping, I dream about this day every moment.”


“Finally, my album came out last year and I have so many people to be thankful for… And now I am here with all of you. Thank you so much.” – Taeyang

Taeyang also performed every single hit from his new album including ‘This Ain’t It‘, ‘1AM‘, ‘Let Go‘, ‘Stay With Me‘ and ‘Love You To Death‘. Much to the fans’ delight, he continued with a hot performance of ‘Good Boy‘ and cheekily mentioned that “there is only one good boy here tonight”.


The concert was at its highest when the music of ‘Bad Boy’ and ‘Fantastic Baby‘ played, inviting everyone to sing and party the BIG BANG songs with Taeyang, followed by encore performances of ‘Body‘ and ‘Eyes, Nose, Lips‘, giving a perfect ending to the concert.


As what Taeyang promised to the fans, we hope to see him and BIG BANG back in Singapore very soon too!
