YG Entertainment confirms BIGBANG’s album will be delayed

Multiple reports have confirmed that YG Entertainment is planning to hold BIGBANG’s concert in April, but clarified news on WINNER and iKON’s guest appearance.

According to numerous reports from an anonymous source on March 19th, BIGBANG has scheduled their comeback concert from April 24th to 26th at the Olympic Gymnasium in Seoul, South Korea. The concert is described to be a part of their promotional activities for their latest album release.

However, YG Entertainment clarified these reports and stated that, “We scheduled BIGBANG’s concerts from April 24th to 26th in advance. Since making their debut, they have been holding concerts with their album release so we reserve the venues in advance.” It was further explained that the album release has been delayed as the members, who prioritises quality over release dates, are still working hard on their latest material.

Furthermore, as the album release date is yet to be finalised, the decision to continue with the original concert dates is still being discussed. The agency also clarified that WINNER and iKON will not be performing as opening acts, denying previous reports that they will be performing on BIGBANG’s tentative concert dates.

The final decision for their concert dates are set to be confirmed next week.
