They are finally here. After their two cancelled visit to Indonesia, YG Entertainment’s only girl group, 2NE1, finally came to Jakarta, Indonesia to hold their second world tour, All or Nothing or we all known as AON. The 2-hours show was held on June 8 at Mata Elang International Stadium, Ancol. The hype around the indoor stadium which usually came from the fans who attend the concert couldn’t be felt until approximately 2 hours before the show unlike previous KPOP concerts, BUT that didn’t decrease the amount of amazement you got once you entered the venue. The stadium was packed with people from girls to guys, from children to adults, and they were, I believe, people who have been waiting for 2NEI to visit Indonesia for years.
The waiting was partly worth it, I might say. The girls were stunning and amazing, and the concert itself was absolutely fantastic. Concert started with a special intro visual which introduced 2NE1 through an artistic visual video with their latest song “Come Back Home” used as background music and then 2NE1 popped out on the stage singing the first song, “Crush”. There was a VCR in the middle of the show that explained the whole show for the audiences to understand what they were actually bringing on the show. The VCR showed 2NE1 with their stage director discussing the concept of the tour which divided into four sections, Pink, White, Red, and Black. Pink section meant to show how women are as strong as men. White section showed women’s pure, serene, and graceful sides. Red meant to represent sexiness. While black made them look fierce.
The concept amazed me by how it was brought in the whole show because it was really smooth and matched well with one another. In the pink section, the girls showed how to look strong while still being feminine with their outfits and choreographies. In white section, 2NE1 appeared taking a strolling white gown swing, looking as beautiful as women could be in white dresses. Red section opened with song “I Love You” and they pulled out their sexiness through a sexy dance time with their male dancers. The last but not least black section started with leader CL’s solo stage with her songs “The Baddest Female” and “MTBD”. 2NE1 bid their goodbye only to came back again through festival area with “Lonely” as the starter of their encore stages.
Honestly, I thought the concert was too fast and the fan service which is popular concert item in KPOP was too little. Unlike the other KPOP concerts where the artists did as much interaction as they could do in their concerts, 2NE1 only did a few talk segments in no more than 5 minutes for each segment. This was my first ever YG Family concert, so maybe I don’t know that it was their concept not to be super interactive with their fans, but once again it was all paid by 2NE1’s stunning live performances and the whole stage (P.S. I declare myself a fan of the lighting effects, it was superb!). Maybe that’s why YG fans love their artists, because it’s purely their works and music that made them their fans. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed the whole concert even though I’m not a fan and don’t really know about their latest hits, because not the special item that we got from the show, but the satisfaction after experiencing a 10 out of 10 live music concert.
Thank you 2NE1 for coming to Indonesia and we’ll surely miss you girls too! Hope you can have a vacation to Bali as soon as possible. Adios!
