'ACT III: MOTTE' World Tour Update: Here's Everything That Happened + Everything You Can Expect From G-Dragon's Concert

To say that BIGBANG leader G-Dragon's kick off concert for his "Act III: MOTTE" was an eventful comeback would have been an understatement. Not only was he greeted on stage by his superstar friends, he was also interrupted by an overzealous fan but the show must go on, and G-Dragon did so in flourish.

The lead up to G-Dragon's fourth solo concert was physically and mentally exhausting for the BIGBANG leader but for the kick off of his 19 city world tour, G-Dragon showed a side of himself that fans have hardly caught a glimpse of, making his concert a memorable experience for the YG artist and for his supporters. Here's everything you may have missed at G-Dragon's first stop of his "Act III: MOTTE" World Tour.

G-Dragon Kicks off World Tour with Concert in Seoul

G-Dragon of boy band Big Bang launched his solo world tour with a performance for 40,000 adoring fans at World Cup Stadium in Seoul on Saturday. The show followed the release of his first solo album in four years.

The concert, which took in W4.4 billion in ticket sales, will likely be one of the singer's last in Seoul before he is drafted (US$1=W1,125).

Unable to tear themselves away after the 21-song, two-hour show, the fans launched into an a cappella version of G-Dragon's 2009 hit "1 Year Station" in the dark. After five minutes, the singer returned to the stage and performed a three-song encore including his new track "Untitled, 2014". Although the song was released just three days earlier, the fans knew it by heart and sang it with him.
