Never mind a new album; 2NE1 have bigger plans! Members Bom and Dara announced plans for a global tour through an emergency ‘Double Park‘ press conference today. The tour is due to start in March of next year with confirmation of stops in countries throughout Asia. The two members expressed their desire to visit South America, Europe and the US, too and since – due to the rushed nature of the announcement – it doesn’t appear that all plans have been signed and sealed, it’s not unfeasible to imagine that European tour dates will be announced in the future.
2NE1 already have a foot in the UK, featuring regularly on Dazed&Confused‘s digital site and having recently performed at the 2013 KBEE in London. Considering that and the success of their label mates, BIGBANG, in the UK (holding two dates at Wembley Arena in 2012), it might not be too long before we see 2NE1 here again, and hopefully in a much bigger venue!
