Singapore was the first country that they headed to for the Asia Pacific leg of the tour. The hot ticketing sales response boosted the management and Big Bang themselves to settle for an agreement. The agreement to extend the amount of concert days in Singapore by a day. The concert was held at Singapore Indoor Stadium on the 28th and 29th of September 2012.

Made me feel alive
This was my first ever Bigbang concert, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I had been to kpop concerts previously - for BEAST, so I knew to go early in the morning since I had gotten mosh pit tickets. Some people queue overnight but I can't bring myself to do that, I need sleep!!
I was queuing by myself at first as my friend and school, but I made friends with people in the queue so it was okay! Tip: make friends and bring games because you're going to spend a long time there and if you want to go to the toilet or grab a bite to eat you'll be thankful for them. Plus it's always nice to meet people with common interests.
On to the concert! I was in around the fifth or sixth row of the mosh pit, but there was so much pushing going on that I somehow ended up in the second row - no complaints there though. After watching the opening video which was how they were aliens from outer space, BIGBANG appeared in capsules on stage. They got us super pumped up and jumping. Of course there were sad songs too, that held special meaning for us fans. I certainly spotted some people tearing up when they sang Haru Haru. While I didn't cry, there was something touching about hearing the whole stadium singing along with so much feeling, and getting all the words correct despite it being a different language.
I must say, BIGBANG has enormous stage presence and they know how to have fun on stage while still performing to the best of their abilities. And of course, they give good fan service!! Not so much the two rappers, but the other three are angels, especially if you're holding a poster in that individual member's support.
The tickets are definitely way overpriced though, and don't make sense. Western singers come from further away and are hence less accessible, but their tickets cost much less. Which is why even though I thought it was a really good experience, I feel the tickets should be at least $70 cheaper.
