Rescheduled dates for Taeyang's concerts announced


Idol group Big Bang singer Taeyang's first solo concert has been rescheduled for September 25 and 26, according to his agency YG Entertainment's CEO Yang Hyun-suk on Tuesday.

The concert, originally set for September 4 and 5, had been postponed "for more time to perfect things for the show" with the singer being busy with promotional work in Japan and shooting a commercial with his five-man band.

Yang wrote on YG's official website that the concert venue has not been changed from Seoul's Kyung Hee University and as already announced, will have no age limit the first day but be open to audience only over the age of eighteen the following day.

Tickets will go on sale on Gmarket ( starting August 20, at 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, Yang also announced that the release date of Taeyang's international album, originally slated for August 19, will be pushed back by a week.

He explained that the title track for the album, "I'll Be There," will be revealed on time but the full album will hit online and offline stores on August 25 with more time needed to complete the music videos.

The new record, targeted at fans in both Korea and overseas, is set to include ten previous releases as well as two new songs, a bonus DVD with all of his music videos, and behind-the-scenes footage.

Born Dong Young-bae, Taeyang was the first Big Bang member to debut as a solo artist, releasing his first mini-album "HOT" in May 2008. The album produced two hit singles "Prayer" and "Look Only at Me."

He has been promoting his first full-length album "Solar" and title track "I Need A Girl," featuring fellow Big Bang member G-Dragon and YG labelmate Sandara Park of girl band 2NE1.
