Big Bang will be performing at Japan's Budokan this November, having just debuted in Japan 4 months ago. Big Bang have previously released two mini-albums and one full-length album in Japan, but all three albums were released under an indie label and contained mostly English songs. Big Bang made their debut proper in Japan on 24th June, 2009 with their first major Jpop single My Heaven, the Japanese version of their Korean hit Heaven.

According to YG Entertainment, Big Bang will be holding a concert on 4th November at Japan's Budokan. Performing at Budokan is the dream of many Japanese singers and this remarkable achievement by Big Bang (1st Korean singer/artist to do so in the short period of 4 months) attest to their growing popularity in Japan. Prior to Budokan, Big Bang will also embark on a Japan concert tour which will span 6 cities and attract more than 50,000 fans, starting with Nagoya on 26th October.

Although Big Bang's Daesung is currently recuperating from multiple injuries suffered in an accident, YG Entertainment is optimistic that with the Budokan date still a few months away, Daesung should recover in time to rejoin Big Bang and their fans for the concert. To build up momentum, Big Bang will also release their 1st Japanese album and Asia Best 2006-2009 album at the same time on 19th August.
