After completing 24 concerts in 18 different locations, BIGBANG‘s Taeyang has successfully completed his 2015 world tour RISE with his last performance in Taipei, Taiwan on March 1st.
Taeyang expressed nostalgia as he wrote, “The journey has ended,” on his personal Instagram account while revealing a photo with the audience and fellow RISE musicians from his concert in Taipei.
He originally started his tour in August of 2014 in Osaka, Japan, and since then has performed in seven additional locations in Japan such as Yokohama, Kobe, Fukuoka, Hamamatsu, Tokyo, Yokohama and Osaka. The vocalist also performed in Seoul, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Jakarta, Bangkok and Taipei.
Taeyang caught VIP’s attention as he released his second solo album RISE on June 2, 2014 after releasing his first solo album Solar on July 1, 2010. Since his return as a soloist, he has released the music videos for the tracks “Eyes, Noses, Lips,” “1AM,” and “Ringa Linga.”
With the completion of his solo world tour, Taeyang will no doubt be returning to Korea to join the rest of the BIGBANG members as they work hard to complete their next album for a comeback this year.
