Ateez: ‘The Fellowship: Beginning of the End’

Ateez has already begun their world tour ‘The Fellowship: Beginning of the End’. After their first world tour in 2019, which was a success even though they were still rookies, the boy group announced another one in 2020. Postponed to 2022, their second world tour is finally happening. Ten of the 12 venues of their tour were sold out within minutes, while the whole tour was sold out in a week. They are also now playing at bigger concert venues to accomodate their increased fanbase with planned concerts in Prudential Center, Mercedes-Benz Arena, and the Wembley Arena.

They began their tour in Seoul with a three-day concert starting from January 7. The US leg of the tour has begun with the boys landing in Chicago on January 15. They will have five stops in the US, followed by six stops in Europe starting with a gig in Amsterdam. However, due to the Omicron outbreak, their European concert dates have been postponed and will be announced soon.



Everyone is looking forward to TWICE’s world tour which was announced recently. Their fourth world tour titled ‘III’ was hinted at with a 'Coming Soon' teaser poster released at the end of their music video for their viral single ‘The Feels,’ their first-ever English track. A three-day Seoul concert was held from December 24 onwards but Jeongyeon was not present. However, she may be joining the rest of the members for the remainder of the tour which begins in the US.

The domestic part of the world tour ‘NCT 127 2nd Tour - Neo City: Seoul The Link’ began on December 17. The three-day concert in Seoul was also live-streamed online.

Like many other K-pop acts, the tour was supposed to happen in June 2020 but got postponed. The dates are gradually being released as countries relax their pandemic-related travel restrictions. Following the Seoul concerts, the group will start ‘NCT 127 2nd Tour - Neo City: Japan The Link’ with three stops in Japan from May 22.

Their fourth world tour, which was supposed to take place in 2020, is finally happening in 2022.
