Recently announcing that Bigbang’s “Love & Pain Tour 2011” has been renamed to “Love & Hope Tour 2011”, YG Entertainment sends out an official notice explaining why they decided to push through the wide scale Japanese tour. On the 9th of April, the company issued a statement announcing that the dates will not be postponed and will push through as scheduled. They have also numbered some means to refrain from using too much electricity for the event and has reiterated that they are doing this to bring ‘hope’ of the current situation.
Details under the cut:
In Japan, a disaster that we’ve never experienced before happened and all of us are working hard right now for reconstruction. Many JVIPs were victims. Some people lost their families, friends, hometowns and valuable keepsakes. Some people even lost everything they have in their life because of the tsunami.
In this serious situation, we need “HOPE” to be able to rebuild as quickly as possible. With this in mind, we have decided to change the title of the tour (to Love & Hope) and carry on, on schedule. (See tour schedule here.)
Our favorite artists and their music have the power to make us forget some things and make us dream or bring us to an ideal world. Even if a concert only takes a couple of hours, we will be able to feel a big sense of happiness and pleasure.
We believe that this concert will give us power in confronting the severe realities we have to face and to change our future. We believe that dreams will come true if we think of a better future with BIGBANG and its FANs as ONE, having lots of HOPE. To pray for a good future, we want to share some precious time filled with LOVE and HOPE with everyone.
*All information regarding this tour will be announced once confirmed. Please wait for further announcements.
*We will carry out this concert with focus on safety and saving on electricity.
*At the moment, we have made sure that scheduled blackouts will not be done during the concert dates at Makuhari.
*LED, spotlights and other power supply that will be used will be from power supply cars that we will bring so the concert won’t affect the power supply of the neighboring homes.
*We may save on electricity, for example, by turning down the lights at the lobby or not using escalators. We are asking for your full cooperation on this.
