I guess this means that 'She's Gone' and uncensored version of 'That XX' won't be performed. Also say goodbye to anything as sexy as GD's 'Breathe' performance in his 'Shine A Light' concerts or 'She 's Gone' type of visual kei performance for 'Obsession'.

Personally I don't really understand YGE's decision as they could have easily set 19 as rating for one of the dates and 12 for other and still sold out all the tickets. Anyhow, if there is anything sexy or slightly scary in the concert expect another lawsuit as media and that crazy Ministry of Health, Welfare and Family Affair will be all over this concert trying to find something to complain after 'Shine A Light' case.

Also since the tour is named as 'One Of A Kind' I suspect that there is a very high chance that GD won't be releasing the other half of his album in March after all. SMH.

Another announcement that YG has just trolled the world. YG always trolling is as sure as 1 times any other number being that number. It's neverending really.

Someone need to photoshop some quotation mark for this "world" tour
Call me pessimist but I don't have much hope for this tour to actually be "worldly"

that sucks.

he's been getting on my damn nerves but i'm 100% it would be amazing to see GD perform a 21+ concert a la the brown eyed girls.
hellodee16 21st-Feb-2013 07:40 pm (UTC)
if he's not performing those songs like OP mentioned, then that does suck. :(
ashiva 21st-Feb-2013 07:54 pm (UTC)
Only She's Gone is totally out of question of the songs I mentioned as it's 19 rated for many reasons. (lots of GD's songs that got 19 rating were unbanned awhile ago after they got rid of some of the rules, like mention of alcohol became allowed again). So yeah, that XX can be performed as censored version, and Breathe and Obsession lost their 19 rating and thus can be performed again. It's just they have to be performed in family friendly way or something. LOL

Well let's hope he'll get a little nasty outside of Korea then.
gathyou 21st-Feb-2013 07:46 pm (UTC)
Oh that's sad, I LOVED 'She's Gone' performance. It really made me like the song, it was creepy and beautiful. And 'Breathe' was great too, really intense.
He would have sold EVERYTHING with a higher age restriction, no doubt. But I can understand they didn't want anymore trouble ?

Oh, I'm not surprised that there won't be any other release before this 'world' tour. We're talking about YGE after all ^^

Boooooooo!! Break da rules, you're GD!!!
She's Gone & Obsession are my absolute favorite GD songs and it absolutely sucks that he can't perform them, at least She's Gone.

this! he really should break the rules! >_> I love both Obsession and She's Gone! :\
unicornios 21st-Feb-2013 09:19 pm (UTC)
I want him to break the rules but then again, you know how South Korea is sometimes...
They're both beautifully creepy songs. <3
yolleh 21st-Feb-2013 09:21 pm (UTC)
They're my absolute favourite too!
Dark GD makes the most brilliant music that can defend his claim to be an artist and boy, do those songs give me feelings.
unicornios 22nd-Feb-2013 02:19 am (UTC)
The way he channels creepy GD. Just kadbkjasndfklashlfshdl.

mark my words
21banged 22nd-Feb-2013 02:07 am (UTC)
Definitely going to be the case :\
hurtmybones 21st-Feb-2013 09:07 pm (UTC)
lol I hope he goes on this "world" tour with no new material, his stans are going to throw a massive hissy fit. might make yge listen
supplanter 21st-Feb-2013 09:14 pm (UTC)
Well... can't he perform the songs anyway, even if the album's not out? (Although why name it this if that's what he's going to do... did he already have a tour on this album?)
dapo322 22nd-Feb-2013 04:08 am (UTC)
He didn't tour with One of A Kind album yet. IIRC he only performed the 2 songs "Crayon" and "One of a Kind" on Big Bang's Alive Tour.

I really wish YG would go back to something like this or have another YG family mv! I was watching Hip Hop Gentlemen and Get Ready, both mvs has GD. He was so freaking small and adorable. Didn't realized he was in so many of the older yg mvs.

21banged Re: OT22nd-Feb-2013 02:07 am (UTC)
omg I have been waiting for another one of these to drop but nooooo YG has better things to do that obviously don't involve giving fans what they want D:
hisjulliet 22nd-Feb-2013 12:09 am (UTC)
I still laugh whenever I remember SK freaking out by his first solo concert

45s 22nd-Feb-2013 12:29 am (UTC)
Gd is for the kids apparently
21banged 22nd-Feb-2013 02:06 am (UTC)

YG, I don't even know what's going on. It's like all the disasters that were supposed to happen in 2012 are happening within YGE and they're self imploding.

Do not know how to deal with this information, She's Gone is still my jam. All I can say is, if I were attending any of these concerts, I wouldn't be a happy chappy :\
tempestdance 22nd-Feb-2013 06:11 am (UTC)
ughhhhhhhh Taeyang got to do a 18+ concert why can't GD?

doesn't matter, probably won't be able to see it myself anyway.

I swear once Seungri sets up his own company, they are gonna run so fast...It's not like they haven't tried already.
