On October 2nd, 2NE1 brought the “fire” and successfully completed their debut Japanese tour in Chiba!
2NE1 held six concerts during their ‘2NE1 First Japan Tour – NOLZA’ at three locations, including Yokohama Arena (9/19 ~ 9/20), Kobe World Commemoration Hall (9/24 ~ 9/25), and Chiba’s Makuhari Messe Hall. The concerts attracted an impressive figure of 70,000 fans.
YG Entertainment stated, “2NE1 brought in 70,000 spectators within a single month after their first promotional appearance on Asahi TV’s ‘Music Station’. …Achieving this kind of record during a Japan debut tour is rare.”
That’s not their only impressive achievement in Japan, however. 2NE1 reached #1 on Japan’s Oricon ‘Daily Album Chart’ with their debut album ‘Nolza’, and also became the first Korean artist to reach #1 on the weekly chart with a debut album.
2NE1 will release their 1st single in Japan on November 16th.
