BIG BANG rocked the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena on October 22, 2016 with their MADE [V.I.P] Tour in Honolulu. The show was sold out, which was a first for any K-pop concert in Hawaii. Fans from all around the world travelled to see them in their final stop of this installation of the tour.
The best was Seungri’s partner… He hoped for a lucky lady when he pulled the seat number from the box, but to his surprise… he got a guy. That made the entire arena burst into laughing, and him to ask, “there’s over a 1000 girls in here… WHY?!” You could see him tell the guy he’s just joking but it was hella funny.
The show was half fan-meeting and half-mini concert which was a little different from other sites. The fan games really showed how the guys act outside of their performance personas and they really seem to like to have fun. The games they played included “That’s My Chair” which was a take on musical chairs, a Limbo Challenge and Couple Jumprop with five handpicked fans from the audience.
In the end Daesung came out as the winner of the games and his partner got a prize pack with a signed BIGBANG doll, and a special polaroid picture with the entire group.
Once the fanmeet was done, the mini-concert started… The concert was a lot shorter than the other dates, but still very much enjoyable as they played their biggest hits from the latest releases.

The time just flew by with this concert and in their thank you messages, they assured the fans that they will be releasing their new album very soon. They also promised to be back on tour again with that new release (first stop is Japan), and they will probably be back to Hawaii. Considering they mostly got here this morning, I’m hoping they’ll have some time to enjoy themselves before returning home.
Watching the crowd before and during the concert, I’m hoping more acts make a stop here in Hawaii. The fans are very devoted and were very energetic, sang along and even did some dancing in the isles.
I know, I thoroughly enjoyed the concert and hope BIG BANG and other K-Pop groups come to Hawaii soon!
