PETALING JAYA: South Korean girl group 2NE1 will perform their first full-fledged concert in Malaysia on May 23, which is slated to take place at Stadium Negara, Kuala Lumpur.

The “2014 2NE1 World Tour All Or Nothing” is the group’s second global outing.

Members CL, Dara, Bom and Minzy will perform their previous chart-topping hits and the latest singles such as Falling In Love and Missing You, and fans can also anticipate new songs from their upcoming album, All Or Nothing.

According to 2NE1’s official Facebook page, the tour’s production team will include co-directors Travis Payne and Stacy Walker, who worked on label-mate G-Dragon’s “One Of a Kind” world tour in 2013.

The tour will kick off on March 1 with a two-day concert at SK Handball Stadium in Seoul and will continue in 13 cities in nine countries, with a total of 17 shows at this point.

Known for their diverse musical stylings, which are influenced by genres such as hip-hop, reggae and Korean teurouteu (trot), the fashion-forward female members have made their mark in the frenetic K-pop scene since their 2009 debut with the hit single, Fire.

On March 23 last year, 2NE1 performed several of their hits, including Can’t Nobody and Lonely, at the two-day Twin Towers Alive 2013 concert in Plaza KLCC.

In 2012, their Dec 8 appearance at Stadium Malawati in Shah Alam was cancelled, with organiser Running Into The Sun attributing the cancellation of the “2NE1 Global Tour 2012 In Malaysia New Evolution” to technical issues.
