Big Bang TaeYang to do opening act for Brian McKnight’s concert in Korea

Big Bang TaeYang will do the opening performance for Brian McKnight’s concert performance in Korea.

Coming 1st April, Brian McKnight will hold a concert after 8 years in Korea titled ‘Mcknight at night’ and TaeYang will be doing the opening show for it.

It has been known that as soon as Brian McKnight saw a video of TaeYang singing he had decided that he wanted TaeYang to perform with him. TaeYang has been recognised as the trendy R&B singer in Korea committed to black music.

Meanwhile, Brian McKnight’s children Brian Jr (21) and Niko (18) will also be performing for his concert in Korea.

  1. […] reported earlier, Big Bang TaeYang was asked to do the opening performance for Brian McKnight’s Korea concert […]

  2. Where can I purchase tickets for this concert?

  3. Taeyang the best R & B singer in Korea? No.

    Wheesung he is a King, Taeyang is a Prince.

  4. Taeyang definitely deserves this~~

  5. Yay. Taeyang <33


  7. Cool news!!!

  8. don’t forget f(x) who opened for beyonce who is huuuuuuuuge

    • f(x) never opened for beyonce. It was a misunderstanding.

    • @Nahanana
      lmao,FAILED BIG TIME!

    • LOL XD

      Beyonce decided to cancel them for the opening act few hours before the show; she probably didn’t watched a video of them before she said yes.

  9. Waaaack. Brian McKnight doesnt even exist in the US anymore. People would rather listen to R&B singers in the US now like NEYO and Trey Songz, who Taeyang stole his “EEEYUPP” in Where U At? Usher is even falling off. I’m a fan of YB, but opening for Brian Mcknight will not get him that much international exposure, esp since it’s in Korea. This is a good start but have the new heads call him up and wanting him to open then he’ll get my respect. That’s all.

    And I wish Koreans, who arent Americanized would stop saying black music. That shit is ignorant as hell Pls God don’t tell Taeyang come to US saying I have always loved “African-American” music, they will grill him to the end. IF YOUR GONNA INDULGE YOURSELF INTO A CULTURE YOUR NOT FAMILIAR WITH, YOU NEED TO KNOW WHAT YOUR SAYING AND INVOLVING YOURSELF IN.

    Of course, congrats YB. ♥

    • say what now? brian mcknight is a legend he maybe be on a hiatus but seriously there is a reson why brian mcknight is doing world tours and neyo and trey songz are still opening acts.

    • tae g@y

  20. WOW this is like an honor to Tae Yang.

  21. Wasnt BM Daesung’s favorite artist?
    But its cool that Taeyang gets to perform for him.

    • I think so. Sigh* if only YG let DaeSung sing songs more often. Instead of just filming for FO.

      • gotta think though FO was prolly best for dae put the least stress on his voice when he had to nodules and still let him get his face out. plus he wanted to do it

  22. OMO this is totally spazz worthy!!! I’m so proud of taeyang!!! he’s slowly on his way to world domination!!!!
