Before BIGBANG’s highly anticipated ‘Alive’ 2012 world tour truly kicks off, MTV will be airing ‘MTV World Stage’, a show which airs clips from live concerts of globally renowned artists. A clip from BEAST’s Malaysian tour has previously been featured.

Most of the May 4th broadcast will be dedicated to various performances by BIGBANG of tracks from their 5th mini album. The broadcast will feature performances of Bad Boy, Fantastic Baby and Blue from their concert held in Seoul in February this year. The broadcast is expected to heighten anticipation for their world tour as fans patiently wait for BIGBANG’s visit to their own country.

More ‘Alive’ performances Alive and various interviews of the members previously broadcast through the Naver Music ‘YG On Air’ service will also air with the other clips.

BIGBANG are quickly becoming ‘world stars’ as following their feat at the MTV EMA last year, being the first Asian artists to win the World Act award, they are once more receiving the same honours as stars as big as Madonna and U2.

The world tour will launch in May in Japan with tickets available from Live Nation, the company who previously worked with Cube Entertainment for the United Cube concert in London in December of last year. YG Entertainment is yet to reveal the full tour list, and is expected to do so following the Japan concert.

Hopefully London will be on that list! Check back on the MTV schedule in a few weeks to see the exact broadcast date in the UK, as they only show broadcasts a week in advance.
