Solo artist BANG YONGGUK returned to Los Angeles for the eleventh and final stop of his US tour 'III'. The rapper, songwriter, and producer, affiliated with YY Entertainment, graced the stage at the Vermont Hollywood on April 28, captivating a diverse audience, including long-time supporters dating back to his debut with the K-pop boy group B.A.P. in 2012. His latest endeavor, the 3rd EP album titled '3', serves as a testament to his artistic evolution, urging fans to embrace life's challenges with the mantra "YOLO" (You Only Live Once).

The evening commenced with an electrifying set by an opening DJ, setting the stage for BANG YONGGUK's performance. As he took the spotlight, his loyal fans, already grooving to the beats, eagerly awaited his arrival. Kicking off the concert with his track 'Off,' he seamlessly transitioned into 'Xie Xie,' 'IXLU,' and 'MOVIMIENTO,' captivating the crowd with each successive song. Amidst the fervor, BANG YONGGUK graciously accepted bundles of gifts from his adoring fans and returned hand hearts, adding to the communal spirit of the night.  His most notable performance was ‘I Remember ft. Yang Yo Seob.  It was sentimental to both him and his fans, as it was his debut solo song in 2011.  

The finale of the show consisted of an outfit change, with BANG YONGGUK wearing his tour merchandise and energetically performing.  As a final goodbye, he performed ‘Rain on Me’ – from his EP ‘THE COLORS OF LOVE’ and an encore of ‘MOVIMIENTO.’ 

BANG YONGGUK hoped to “bring out everything together” at the last concert of the tour, and he did not disappoint.  Be sure to purchase the album ‘3’ and look forward to new songs from the multi-talented BANG YONGGUK.   

We cannot wait to see what he has in store for the future.  It was great to see B.A.P. fans who continue to support BANG YONGGUK and his endeavors!
