G-Dragon, the lead singer of popular K-pop group Big Bang, will kick off his solo world tour, “G-Dragon 2013 World Tour: One of a Kind,” on March 30-31 at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul.

Big Bang recently held their world tour, “2012 Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour,” where they met with fans from all over the world. After the group completed the tour, YG Entertainment announced G-Dragon’s 1st world tour with a poster through an official me2day posting on Jan. 12.

“2013, G-DRAGON’s first world tour is finally here! The tour will take place at the Seoul Gymnastics Stadium in Korea and the three domes in Japan! What countries, what cities, and what kind of performances will greet fans? We’re very excited!” the announcement had said.

The tour will promote the singer’s first EP and single “One of a Kind,” which was released last fall.

With the additional dome engagement since the January announcement, G-dragon will be the first Korean solo artist to tour four of Japan’s domes including the Seibu, Kyosera, Fukuoka and Nagoya domes. His agency YG Entertainment expects the concerts will attract 361,000 fans.
