Big Bang can't haz angsty guitar smash no more

This week will be the last week fans will be able to see G-Dragon smash a guitar on stage for “Tonight,” as the group will no longer be putting on their special ‘guitar performance’ in favor of changing up their routine.

YG Entertainment revealed that this week’s episode of SBS’s “Inkigayo” will be the last of the guitar smashing, and reasoned, “We can’t show the same performance every time.  We’re currently planning something new to take the place of the guitar performance.  It’ll be a new choreography, we won’t be breaking anything else.”

The guitar performance was said to have begun as G-Dragons idea for the acoustic segment of the song.  After listening, he asked himself, “Should I just break it?”

When asked about the guitars that were broken, and whether they were new, YG officials responded,They are, of course, new.  Before every stage, we bought new guitars, and each are worth about $150 USD.
