Fans treated to a bangin' good time

Fans treated to a bangin' good time

SINGAPORE - Of all the things Korean stars come to Singapore for, chilli crab may not be the first that comes to mind.

Now K-pop group Big Bang may have the honour of being the first to have written a song about it... sort of.

"I wrote a song today about what I ate," band member Taeyang, 25, told the 35,000-strong crowd at the Padang last Friday night.

Cue screams. Yes, even the band's dinner gives their fans palpitations. "I ate chilli crab and pepper crab and Nando's," he rapped several times to giggles from the crowd.

They headlined the first night of entertainment at the 2013 SingTel Singapore Grand Prix.

Their 75-minute show - which featured hits Fantastic Baby, Lies and Bad Boy - was a tightly-edited version of the Alive world tour they took to 22 cities last year, including Tokyo, London and Lima, Peru.

Aside from revelations about their eating habits, there were other break out moments from group members, G-Dragon, TOP, Seungri and Daesung.

The youngest, Seungri, 22, who sported a leather jacket the whole night, offered up a little bit of US rapper Nelly's Hot in Herre as he wiped the sweat from his face.

Later, he mixed a little of Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines into his solo single Strong Baby.

The quintet stuck to high-energy hits, ditching ballads and slower favourites like Haru Haru, which disappointed some fans.

Miss Rianti, 21, an Indonesian student and one of the many light stick-wielding fans in the crowd, flew here with two friends to watch her idols sing live for the first time.
