K-pop stage-breakers SEVENTEEN has announced two additional tour dates for its world tour ‘Be the Sun’, a day after concluding a series of seven shows initially planned in Southeast Asia.
The performance powerhouse will be returning to the Philippines and Indonesia for additional shows at the Philippine Arena, Bulacan, on December 17 and Gelora Bung Karno Madya Stadium, Jakarta, on December 28.
The announcement came shortly after the group’s very first American Music Awards nomination for Favorite K-pop Artiste was made public.
SEVENTEEN recently also received three MTV European Music Awards nods for Best New, Best Push, and Best K-Pop, after taking home their very first Moon Person earlier in August at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards for PUSH Performance of the Year.
Starting with a show in Jakarta on September 24, SEVENTEEN dazzled audiences across seven shows in Jakarta, Bangkok, Manila and Singapore with three hours of high-octane performances complemented by a touch of humour signature to a SEVENTEEN show.
The 13-piece act delivered a heartfelt message to the fans in the final few moments of their show in Singapore.
“It cannot be easy to always send so much love our way with this (physical) distance between us. With that in mind, we are truly grateful for this stage and this day. We will continue to bring the best performances to you, as ‘one team’.”
Fan chants led by the band and the fans alike filled the stadium throughout, bringing everyone present together for the quintessential K-pop experience.
SEVENTEEN made their grand return to the concert stage in June this year, with two shows in Seoul that were under the spotlight as the largest show in the city with a live audience since the pandemic.
Following 12 shows in North America and seven shows in Southeast Asia, SEVENTEEN will take their crowd-pulling show to Japan next for a tour across Osaka, Tokyo and Aichi through November and December.
