YG Entertainment has revealed it will not hold promotional activities for Big Bang’s much-anticipated special re-release album Still Alive.
The special edition album is scheduled to drop on June 3 with five additional songs in addition to the songs from the mini album Alive.
However, a source close to YG Entertainment revealed the group has decided to not hold any performances for the new album, including music shows, and focus on its ongoing world tour 2012 Big Bang Alive Tour instead.
Big Bang is in the midst of a series of concerts lined up in Japan, with concerts in Osaka from May 31 through June 3, Saitama from June 17 through 17 and Fukuoka from June 23 through June 24.
In the midst of the packed concert schedule, YG Entertainment and Big Bang decided that planning, rehearsing and performing stages for the album in-between would prove too much. Big Bang’s world tour will also take them to Asia, North and South America and Europe to wind them through 16 countries and 25 cities.
