Big Bang attract the 2nd most concertgoers in Japan, #1 among K-Pop artists

On November 7, Japanese magazine Nikkei Entertainment released a list of the 'Top 50 Artists with the Largest Audiences for their concerts in 2014'. Big Bang was second overall on the list, with an impressive audience count of 927,000 people.

This audience number includes Big Bang's six dome tour 'Big Bang Japan Dome Tour 2013-2014', their February 4 event during which they held 14 live performances, as well as their upcoming five dome tour 'Big Bang Japan Dome Tour 2014-2015 X', for a total of 29 concerts. 

First place on the list was given to none other than popular Japanese group EXILE, who collected 1.05 million audience members with 31 concerts. Arashi took third place with 894,000. Meanwhile, TVXQ was second place among K-Pop artists with 700,000 audience members, followed by EXOGirls' Generation, and SHINee.

Representatives from YG Entertainment commented, "This is proof that Big Bang has great interest among the artists in Japan and have great, competitive ticket power and status." They continued, "Among those who have done solo activities in Japan, Big Bang member Daesung had a total of 169,000 audience members for 15 concerts during his solo arena tour this year; [if you include that number] Big Bang has gathered 1,096,000 audience members."

If you added Daesung's 15 solo Japanese concerts to the total gross, it would amount to around 110 billion won ($101 million USD).

In other news, Big Bang will be launching their five dome tour in Nagoya on November 15. They will be hosting 15 concerts in five different cities, and are expecting to attract an audience of around 741,000.
