With plans to debut in Japan in September, 2NE1 is busy preparing for the concert. Star News was able to take a sneak peak at their first 3-day long concert, â€œNolzaâ€.
As it is their first mega-scale concert since their debut, 2NE1 has been busy preparing through rehearsals. Although most concertsâ€™ rehearsals usually begin 2 days before the concert date, 2NE1 has scheduled rehearsals a week before the concert date.
On August 24th, a staff member from YG Entertainment spoke with Star News and stated, â€œWe rented out the concert venue for rehearsal so we could best match the same environment as the concert. The time invested in preparation is described by the membersâ€™ passion for the upcoming concertâ€.
The stage will have various colors to bring out the individualistic nature of 2NE1.
A large, vivid HD screen will be prepared for the audience seated farther away, and a T-shaped stage will be prepared for the audience to communicate the members of 2NE1 even closer, as well as a surprise event in the seats. Special outfits have been made and prepared as well.
The staff member continued, â€œNot to mention all of 2NE1â€™s hit songs throughout their career, never seen before individual performances from the members will also be showcasedâ€¦ There will also be a surprise performance to demonstrate 2NE1â€™s musical growth. This concert will prove 2NE1â€™s true worthâ€, promising expectations. However, the staff member didnâ€™t divulge any specific details.
There will be delightful guest performers, too. YG Entertainmentâ€™s senior artists, G-Dragon and Taeyang of Big Bang, as well as Park Myung Soo, are set to appear to put on exciting performances.
The hit collaboration song of G-Dragon and Park Myung Soo, â€œI Cheatedâ€œ, from MBCâ€™s â€œInfinity Challengeâ€ will be performed at the concert. As both celebrities are busy with their schedules, it will be a rare stage where they will get to perform the song together.
Park Myung Soo will also put on a collaborative performance with Sandara Park. The two will be remixing the former collaborated song, â€œNaengmyunâ€, by SNSDâ€™s Jessica and Park Myung Soo, and give it a Sandara Park flavor.
The three day concert will take place from August 26th to August 28th at the Olympic Hall in Seoul.
