As many VIPs know, BIGBANG member, Taeyang recently finished his 2017 World Tour, “WHITE NIGHT” here in North America!
For his North American tour, he had a total of 8 stops- Toronto, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, San Jose, Los Angeles and Vancouver! For the last stop, which was Vancouver, the VIPs there had a chance of seeing Taeyang twice in two nights due to an overwhelming response and demand to see Taeyang!
The first night AND the second night of his Vancouver stop on September 14th & 15th, there were many fans excitedly waiting for him while standing in line. Despite the venue being entirely seated with no GA, there were still numerous of fans that waited in line early to show their support for Taeyang!
As a few hours passed, around 6:30pm, fans were able to begin entering the venue and purchase official merchandise if they wanted to. Though the concert venue may not have seemed large to many, it was intimate enough for Vancouver VIPs and Taeyang to get close to each other, for this would be the very first time he was performing in Vancouver!
After entering the venue, excited cheers and chatter were filled amongst the venue, everyone eager to see the BIGBANG member perform. As lights dimmed down, both the music and VCR started to play, catching everyone off guard with cheers and cries. The doors on the stage then began to slowly open up, smoke blowing to the doors, and a man dressed in an all-white outfit charismatically made his way to the stage.
The opening song was “Ringa Linga”, which definitely got everyone hyped up right from the beginning! The second song to get everyone in a more excited mood was “아름다워 Body” (Beautiful Body). The night progressed and because this is his “White Night” tour, he promoted the album by performing the songs- in no particular order, “White Night”,”WAKE ME UP”, “Darlin”, “AMAZIN”, and etc. But boy oh boy, Taeyang definitely put on a show! Fans were definitely not disappointed as he did also perform his iconic throwback songs “I Need a Girl”, “Only Look At Me”, “Wedding Dress” and “1AM”.
But the show didn’t end there! During his encore stage, he came hyping the crowd back up with “Break Down”! He continued to dominate the stage with “Good Boy” having us scream and sing along with him, yet it didn’t end there for he performed BIGBANG’s “BANG BANG BANG” x “FANTASTIC BABY” BUT it was a remix version of it! It was super exciting and the whole entire crowd was jumping and singing along the whole entire time! During his ment, he talked about how he was thankful to all his fans around the world, always giving him all the love and support and that despite it being the first time ever in Vancouver, he wanted to come back with the rest of the BIGBANG members later on. Taeyang was also sweet enough to wear a Canadian hockey jersey and red hat to show his love for Canada, and also threw some of the “White Night” merchandise he was wearing, out into the crowd!
As the concert grew closer to the end, and it was time for the last song of the night, Taeyang sang “Eyes, Nose, Lips”. This made some of the fans there tear up a bit and sing along once again with him.
All in all, it was an amazing and intimate concert for the Vancouver VIPs, marking this the first time a BIGBANG member has come to Vancouver to perform. Fans walked out with happy tears, smiles on their faces and best of all, a memory to keep with them forever.
