This is way overdue but here it is finally… After attending GD’s concert last year, Taeyang had his own concert this year. So DramaQueen and I decided to reward ourselves this year wait a concert as well. (P.s. DramaQueen was so smitten with Big Bang that she went to Big Bang’s concert in Singapore and when they made their appearance at the countdown celebrations at the beginning of 2015!)

Anyways, Taeyang’s ‘Rise’ concert was held at Singapore Expo Hall 3 and this time round we actually went for the moshpit. Thank goodness it wasn’t as chaotic and overbearing as it could have been, but one thing is for sure I am not going to do moshpit ever again! All that shoving and standing was simply too tiring… my poor feet… Lol T
|The beginning of the concert|
There was this really enthusiastic fanboy, yes boy (?!) not girl, who was behind me singing along loudly but unfortunately using my head as a microphone. Haha Needless to say, it was some serious washing of hair that night when I went home. Though I have to admit, standing at the moshpit gave a pretty good view.
After concluding his Malaysia tour the day before, Taeyang arrived in Singapore on the morning of the concert. During the concert, he jokingly said that he took a bus down to Singapore but did not know that it was that far. Fans were treated to some classic tracks from Taeyang’s first solo album, Solar, such as ‘Body‘, ‘Superstar‘and ‘Move’. Of course, he also sang songs from his latest album, ’Rise’, which took him 4 years make with songs like ‘This Ain’t It’, ‘Ringa Linga’, ‘1AM ‘and ‘Stay With Me’.
Unlike GD’s energetic flirty flamboyant performance, Taeyang was a little more reserved gentle homey in his performance style, but he still managed to bring the house down with his dance skills (and showing a lot of skin).
