Spectacular shots of Big Bang at Wembley Arena + 1 Omona Exclusive

About a month ago a lovely professional photographer offered to get some exclusive Big Bang @ Wembley Arena shots for all of us! Pretty cool, right? OmonaTheyDidn't! also applied for a press pass so we could ask questions and stuff, but no one ever got back to us *tear* However, it was not a big deal because this photographer was working with The Line of Best Fit and they had no problem with her giving us some extra shots. Sadly the photo policy was very strict and because of a mistake she was only able to shoot for one song, from the back of the venue, behind the fans. She was lucky to get 10 good shots for that website & an extra for us.

& now for OMONA'S 1ST EXCLUSIVE SHOT! Who could it be....

DAESUNG!! aka D-Lite + a micro bonus of Taeyang lurking in the background...

I'm sure he's very honored to be our first & I know we'll all cherish this frozen moment in time for eternity <3
Please keep anticipating his upcoming JAPANESE SOLO ALBUM!!

- TOP did two hours of dad dancing
- Daesung was the crowd favourite. He seemed really nice and smiley and interacted with the fans a lot.
- There were a -lot- of East London hipsters there.
- "I cried a bit out of secondhand embarrassment when Taeyang ripped his shirt off and wouldn't put it back on." - Quote from the photographer
- GD stayed in London a bit longer, did LOADS of shopping and trolled all the fans trying to stalk him by constantly Instagramming his whereabouts. He seemed super knowledgeable about where all the cool shops were. Photographer-unnie was quite impressed.

Check out the rest of the shots @thelineofbestfit.com
You might have already seen them because within an hour of them being uploaded people were taking them & putting their own watermarks on them. R00d!

Did anyone from Omona attend? Share your experience! :D

I was there on 15th and loved 99% of it. The -1% was for the time I had to spend thinking "jesus H christ, Taeyang, can you please let someone else do something for more than ten seconds without sticking your oar in? Your contribution is not alway required. And your English is good enough not to say things like "let me introduce MY band". Terrible little show-off. But it was minor enough and he was never my fave anyway so I'm not devastated by having to like him less. .

The production was slick as hell and the show was really well-paced. I think they could have kept thier powder dry on a couple of the big numbers and saved them for the encore, rather than having to repeat them at the end of the show. GD's solo stage and the GTOP stage were fab and Seungri is a complete star and boundlessly confident. His strangulated "Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins" London accent had to be heard to be believed, but how amazing that he could pick it up so well so quickly. Aw, Daesung was very sweet and smiling and has a tremendous voice and was greeted with huge affection. More solo ops for him, please. TOP was deffo the crowd fave the night I was there at least from were I was sitting. Grown women literally shrieked their actual heads off every time he so much as raised an eyebrow, but I was in the noona seats, so maybe it was different on the floor.

Seeing how much official merch they sold and how many people had official crown lights, which looked amaaaazing when the lights were down I was a wee bit sad that SM didn't make the same effort when I went to SuJu in Paris as they would have sold stacks of lightstick and it would have looked dead proper.

I'm gonna need some leaked audio of this dick van dyke inspired accent.
halus 20th-Dec-2012 09:24 am (UTC)
I was there both nights so amazing!

I was there on the 15th and DAMN WHAT A CONCERT!!! I went for Taeyang and left Daesung bias. That kid was flawless and perfect and just interacted with everyone. All the members did a great job interacting with the audience (including those way up near the top). Fantastic concert that reminded me of my old BB fangirling times. Seriously worth the pain and effort of queuing up at the crack of dawn.
love_keiko 20th-Dec-2012 03:46 pm (UTC)
omg! i feel u on that dae love! after the NJ he officially jumped over GD on my bias list. he is AMAZING live! AWESOME body, super charismatic, and super sweet.

i'm officially a TopDae stan because of him.
aloakley 20th-Dec-2012 10:39 am (UTC)
it was amazing omg, going to the concert reminded of why i was such a big bang stan. and i have a new found appreciation for TOP, he's too beautiful for words omg. there were so many things: seungri's english accent, implying taeyang was gay(lol), the fans singing along to haru haru etc. there were no boring moments. i went with a massive GD bias but i have a bigger appreciation of all of them now (even taeyang whom i HATED). hope they come back again :)
gray_fairy 20th-Dec-2012 11:04 am (UTC)
implying taeyang was gay

When was that? :O
fantaesticbaby 20th-Dec-2012 10:52 am (UTC)
This was the best concert of my life :') I forked out loads for early access and it was totally worth it!
They were better than I had expected and I'm so happy to have seen them :') It has renewed my love for Big Bang, and I have so much respect for all of them, they were truly brilliant.
ironicmustache 20th-Dec-2012 10:58 am (UTC)
ugh this is making me seriously depressed about not being able to get tickets last week ㅠ.ㅠ

I was there on the one on 15th:

*Before concert they played Big Bang (and GD) videos on the loop from this and last year and the teen audience on the floor screamed their head outs thinking that the concert is gonna start whenever new video started playing (though if they had just checked their clocks they would have realized it's not gonna start for a while.) GD's solo videos got biggest screams. They finally stopped screaming when the loop started for a new from beginning. LOL

*From the very start band and microphone volume was at bit too loud which really hurt sound quality, especially for first half with its high energy songs. Band's own jam session later in the night, however, sounded really good. Pity that they didn't play at that volume most of the concert, I'm sure audience could have screamed a bit less loud to fit that.

*Best solo stages were by Daesung and Taeyang (and maybe GD&TOP as duo).

*GD's awkward English rap got kinda lukewarm response. I think he was expecting better. LOL Like some people did some screaming for it, but it wasn't from the heart. And some parts of SeungRi shouting in his microphone really hurt my ears during his solo stage

*However, during the concert SeungRi was a total riot with his British accent and trolling Taeyang with it (Taeyang was begging him to stop doing it, but he never did LMAO)

*And Taeyang really needs to realize that he isn't a solo act, but part of a group when he's with Big Bang. Some parts like him introducing "my band" were really awkward.

* I don't really have one Big Bang bias so it was hard for me as I felt like I was missing something at other side of stage whenever I concentrated on one member. Anyhow all of them gave lots of fan service (they even gave us some GRI stuff LOL), especially during encores. <3

*Blue mission kinda fell through, but during the concert it was really beautiful with all the crown and those smaller alive light sticks, though there was still quite a bit of people who didn't have one when compared to Asian concerts.

*In the end of the concert the biggest screams/applauds were given for TOP. Daesung got second biggest.

*And SMH @ two stranger bitches next to me who didn't seem like they even wanted to be there (they didn't talk lick of English, so I have no idea why they even were there, but it seemed like they didn't know either...)

*Oh and at the end of the concert TOP was made to give his very own dance solo for the audience. Priceless.

*But all together it was an awesome concert.

number 1 complaint i've seen across the board for their tour. i had the same experience from him at BOTH days of the NJ leg of their tour. and it's no secret that i can't stand TY anymore so i thought maybe it was just me being bias until my cousin who had never heard of BB before that night (came with me so i didnt have to go alone and ended up having a blast) said THE SAME THING.

i dont think he's aware at how off putting his behavior has been lately.

Haha! Photographer unnie is the best. You have no idea how hard she had to work to get just these shots. She felt so sorry that she didn't get the number of shots she thought she could get for us. It's ok though <3 ALL OTHER KOREAN ENTERTAINMENT OUTLETS ARE TREMBLING @ OUR EXCLUSIVE!! ^___~

Was there on the 15th and it was A-MAZING!!!Loved the concert to bits!! <333

Seungris' British accent was hilarious with his 'Awwrighhtt' lol xD Daesung was adorable with an hyperactive Taeyang all over the stage!lol!GD with his usual swag and lastly TOP who was just sexaaaayyy ;)) Ma voice was dead after screaming everytime TOP came on!lol xDDD

To be honest,think GD got a good response from the crowd too,thought it was GD was was the crowd fav!oh well >.<

It was really an awesome experience and I enjoyed myself soo much!We were soo high after the concert,we ended up buying that rhinestone tshirt...wanted a wifebeater like what BB was wearing but who says we cant cut the sleeves off?!!lol

yolleh 20th-Dec-2012 02:07 pm (UTC)
I was there on the 15th and diiiiiiiied. It was amazing!
I took soooo many pictures and videos, they were so lax about the cameras you could bring in so I took in my DSLR and took videos on my iphone.

I can't think of any negatives at all apart from the fact that Taeyang needed to calm the hell down (but that's just subjective personal taste I suppose)and TOP seemed not into it at all :(
The only time TOP seemed happy was during the encore where he got to be his precious little goofy self, rolling around on stage in the glitter. My heart burst! :D

Daesung gave us sooo much fanservice, GD had infinite amounts of stage presence, I love the production and the changing up of the songs, TOP was hoooooooooot and Seungri was pure flawless entertainment.

Ugh and can they please wear suits forever? Kthnx.
gray_fairy 20th-Dec-2012 02:29 pm (UTC)
I agree in the TOP thing. He was too serious/quiet during the whole show, but he's gorgeous and a good performer so I didn't mind.
cettefemme90 20th-Dec-2012 02:30 pm (UTC)
I wanted to go but it was ridiculously expensive...same with CNBlue when they came to London :/
lee_chikin 20th-Dec-2012 11:07 pm (UTC)
mte. Between the ticked and the eventual plane trip it'd have been too much. I'm not sure I'd pay that price even to see my bias tbh.
papa_olaf 20th-Dec-2012 02:53 pm (UTC)
Gah all these comments are making me think back about their concert in Singapore. I'm fairly new to Kpop so I really didn't know what to expect but I was really glad that Big Bang was my first Kpop concert. [you know what they say, you never forget your first!]

Pictures and videos don't do them justice. I thought Seungri was incredibly handsome and the way he was going all out to get the crowd going was endearing. Daesung was like sunshine & moonshine combined - boy was just pure joy with his voice and smiles and just - gah. Taeyang has no ounce of fat on his body - that is all.

TOP didn't have to do anything to get a response and it was incredible to watch - dude's got charisma in spades.

But I left the concert being incredibly impressed by GD. Swag nonsense aside, the boy's got talent and charisma oozing out of his pores. He knows exactly what the audience wants and he leaves them wanting more. Again, videos don't do him justice.

All in all, I walked away even more intrigued by them. They know how to work the stage and they're clearly enjoying what they're doing so that was always good to see.

/mini-essay over

i went on the 15th!!

I honestly can't think of any negatives about the gig, even YB amused me ( i didn't even catch the MY band etc.) & how he kept telling Seungri to stop his terrible London accent.
I thought our seats would be rubbish but we had a really great view not too far from the T stage. Daesung definitely favoured our side of the stage.
GD, YB & Seungri all impressed me with their english, they were funny and articulate. Panda did revert back to Engrish a fair bit, with his memorised factoids but he was so honest and excited to ~share he's really jumped up in my bias.
TOP was really really quiet and spoke the least. He was the only one to revert back to Korean as well. People keep saying that's the way he is but his ~bingu top side only came out a little bit.. does anyone have photos/fancam of Top lying on the floor blowing the glitter? Pretty much the highlight of the night eheh

So glad they were selling crownsticks, it's a really beautiful sight to see when all the lights go down. The ONE thing that annoyed me was the Samsung tent outside. They were giving out free blue light bracelets but the queue (even though it was really really short) we ended up waiting for 40 mins and we were still no-where near to the tent. I have no idea what kind of survey or w/e they were asking people to do but it took roughly 10 mins per person? Ridiculous. In the end we left the queue and didn't get any freebies as the line for our section had all gone in.
evilsquidx 20th-Dec-2012 04:56 pm (UTC)
I didn't get any light bracelets either, so gutted. They looked so pretty :(
asnindie 20th-Dec-2012 04:40 pm (UTC)
I had to sell my ticket because of my coursework load but my sister went and said it was amazing, the crazy nut job is already trying to get to Korea to marry TOP tho.
markthatcoin 20th-Dec-2012 04:51 pm (UTC)
ahh that's so cool! can't wait for more omona exclusive interviews! the full gallery is great, i love the colors so much. many thanks to The Line of Best Fit!

and yay for a "big bang concert memories" post ^^

i left the [LA] concert with a serious appreciation for all five boys. until then i mostly cared about GD and Top and Seungri, but more than ever i really respect Taeyang (even his ridiculous unnecessary dancing) and Daesung (especially his OUT OF THIS WORLD vocals)
shanny_w 20th-Dec-2012 09:45 pm (UTC)
she did manage to take some great pics! lol she basically had to use a telescope from her location but she got it done.
evilsquidx 20th-Dec-2012 04:54 pm (UTC)
I went on the 15th and I had the best time ever, more fun than I thought I'd have because I'm not the biggest bigbang fan but I knew more songs that I thought I would and I just enjoyed it so much. I really can't stop talking about that night.
Seungri was my favourite by far, he had so much energy throughout. Also, I found myself extremely attracted to gd which has never happened before ever.

omg i could not stop turning to my friend and saying "GD looks so good right now?!" which i had never thought before. i think he's developing a little bit of muscle instead of looking so wiry all the time. he looks really good.

shazz_chan 20th-Dec-2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
I was there on the 14th and honestly still can't believe it happened. We were in standing and when they ran out onto walkway parts it such a sudden rush of 'OMG THEY'RE RIGHT THERE I CAN'T EVEN-' so close!

Seungri was my bias anyway but after this gig I love him 100 times more, such a crack and he really connects with the audience live. Esp with that goofy ass adorable accent straight out of Mary Poppins (Y)

I spent £95 on merch #noregrets cos the hoodie is well snug

I got some pretty good pics and vids, overall really happy with everything :)
Some of my pics and a gif from my fancam

i was there on the 15th basically the best day of my life

put your ass UP~~
zobydabest 21st-Dec-2012 12:57 am (UTC)
I've been suffering from post-concert blues since Saturday :(
It still feels so unreal, I have waited YEARS for it and time went by so fast.
I danced and screamed my lungs out, I did apologise to the guy next to me but he was cool with it ha
They are so energetic and engaging! especially Taeyang, he was running around and doing his odd dance moves everywhere. He even tripped and almost bust his face near the start.
Seungri was by far my fave for the night. His British accent never failed to make me laugh. He made it so much more enjoyable.
It's hard to explain this but it's weird how everything I see on my laptop was right in front of me,like GD cringing at whatever Seungri said and choom TOP.
Daesung looked so gorgeous and his voice sounded beautiful.
TOP was def the crowd favourite, all he had to do was breath into the mic and everybody would lose it.
GD did his thing. I screamed "GD I love you" a couple of times (really needed to get that out)
I was actually surprised at the amount of male fans there, one of the cutest little fanboy was in my section. However, there was one guy who seriously looked so forced to be there. Every time I glanced over, his face was full of disgust wth
I took a friend who doesn't know them well and they def won her over.

I loved how they were genuinely so thankful for the support and love. It made me so happy.
I can understand how fans feel now when they talk about how badly they need to see their faves again. I thought seeing BB once would be enough for me but I'm craving for more.
