As the main producer of YG Entertainment, Korean K-Pop sensation G-Dragon has contributed much to the success of K-Pop boy-band BIG BANG. With the success of his solo album, entitled "One of a kind", G-Dragon has embarked on a World Tour to demonstrate his unlimited potential as a solo artist with the most selling record for a male singer in a year.

For the Indonesian stop of his tour, G-Dragon was back again to perform in the Mata Elang International Stadium (MEIS) located in Ancol, Jakarta. Mata Elang Productions was appointed the technical rental partner for this mega-sized stage production which has now become synonymous with K-Pop concerts.

The sound rig for this concert’s FOH sound was nothing less than a full Clair Brothers rig, of which Mata Elang owns over 100 units in their rental inventory - possibly the largest system in South East Asia.

MetallicaWorking with a ceiling that's 20 meters high and a megasize indoor stage to boot in the stadium, tour lighting designer Jihae Hyun, pulled out all the stops for the concert which involved multiple moving LED screens and multi-coloured lasers.

LD Jihae Hyun chose to light the stage with over 80 units of moving heads including 35 x Clay Paky Sharpy, 50 x Vari-Lite VL3000 Spot, and 8 x Fine Art 2500 Wash fixtures. Other key fixtures in the lighting design includes Atomic 3000W Strobes, MP Dragon LED Wash, 8-cell Blinders, 4000 watts follow spots, Antari HZ-400 Hazers and Antari Fog machines. Assisting Jihae Hyun was the Mata Elang lighting team of Bernard Chew as lighting advisor, lighting designer and chief engineer Deddy M., and lighting engineer Hassan.

The lighting team ran the main show off 2 x MA Lighting grandMA2 full-size and 1 x grandMa2 Light consoles which were connected using 2 x MA NPU units, with supporting control done on an Avolites Tiger console. "It was very exciting to see that our choice of using the combination of Clay Paky Sharpy and VL3000 lights has produced a light show befitting the Dragon!" commented Bernard Chew.
