After stunning audiences here at the Singapore Indoor Stadium Korean singer G-Dragon and the rest of his band Bigbang will be headlining 2013 Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix's Padang stage on Friday 20 September 2013.
Comprising members G-Dragon, TOP, Taeyang, Daesung and Seungri, the group, formed in 2006 by independent record label YG Entertainment, had to undergo extensive training in both singing and dancing, practicing to near perfection, before eventually making its debut in August 2006 at an anniversary party for the label.
Following the successful formula that has helped boy bands all over the world gain immense popularity, Bigbang soon released its first studio album 'Since 2007'.
The 2007 single 'Lies' from the 'Always' EP was their first big hit, and the song stayed on top of the Korean charts for seven consecutive weeks. It didn’t take long for the five heartthrobs to become superstars in Asia.
Tagged as one of the most successful Asian acts in the world, the group is expected to sing songs from their recent albums 'Alive' and 'Still Alive' in their upcoming concert. The group last performed here in 2012.
