Official music chart keepers in Japan, Oricon, have recently posted their list of the best concerts to have seen in Japan for 2012. Bigbang’s Alive Tour 2012 in Japan came in at a respectable #5 while another K-Pop boyband, 2PM, came in at #6 with their 2PM Live 2012 Six Beautiful Days tour.
Amongst the positive reviews for both groups, Oricon said the following statements, first off, Bigbang: “We were amazed at the high level of performance. The strongly addictive songs and the remarkable creativity in every aspect made it clear that big artists from out of this world have arrived.”
They had equally positive comments about 2PM adding, “Although a member was injured prior to the concert so the odds were against them to perform with a 100% satisfactory performance, they were still able to achieve a handsome six-day stage. Their charms are their dancing with their strong built figures and the quality of their songs in addition to the members’ characters. They were able to shows their individual charms through their solo stages that changed each day and brought the fans to their feet. It was a large scale performance that made the stage feel cozy.”
