TXT Shatters Records and Captivates Fans on Successful US Leg of World Tour

TXT (Tomorrow X Together) has wrapped up the North American segment of their ‘TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR’ with resounding success.

The tour, which kicked off in Tacoma on May 14, made stops in Oakland, Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, New York, Rosemont, and Washington D.C., drawing over 140,000 fans.

TXT’s performances were historic, as they became the first K-pop group to perform at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and Houston’s Minute Maid Park. Both venues had never hosted a K-pop concert before.

Additionally, TXT set a new K-pop record by selling out two shows at New York’s Madison Square Garden, a venue known for hosting legendary artists like Elvis Presley, The Rolling Stones, and Taylor Swift.

Their live performances were a hit, featuring energetic delivery, unique arrangements, and varied stage concepts. They impressed North American fans with a Korean traditional music version of “Sugar Rush Ride,” originally an alternative pop dance track.

TXT also showcased their rock influences with songs like “Growing Pain” and “PUMA.” Unit performances of “The KILLA (I belong to you)” by Soobin and Yeonjun, and “Quarter Life” by Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Hueningkai, highlighted contrasting styles.

The setlist included “Cat & Dog (English ver.),” which received enthusiastic responses from the audience. TXT also paid homage to local culture by singing snippets of popular songs like Sting’s “Englishman in New York” and Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” and wearing jackets of local sports teams such as the NHL’s New York Rangers and NBA’s Chicago Bulls.

The members expressed their gratitude, saying, “We were truly happy to see everyone dancing and singing along to our songs. We realized once again that our happiness comes from MOA (our fandom). We will work harder to become artists that MOA can be proud of. Although we don’t visit the U.S. often, we promise to create unforgettable memories whenever we do.”

After wrapping up the successful North American tour, TXT will continue their third world tour in Japan this July. They will perform at four major domes for the first time since their debut, starting with Tokyo Dome on July 10, followed by Kyocera Dome Osaka, Vantelin Dome Nagoya, and Fukuoka PayPay Dome.

Before heading to Japan, they will also participate in the ‘2024 Weverse Con Festival’ at Inspire Entertainment Resort in Yeongjongdo, Incheon, on June 15.

Tomorrow X Together’s dynamic live performances and unique arrangements captivated audiences. The group presented ‘Sugar Rush Ride’ in a traditional Korean style, impressing North American fans with its alternative pop dance roots.

Their powerful rock renditions of ‘Growing Pain’ and ‘PUMA’ showcased their versatility, while unit performances like ‘The KILLA (I belong to you)’ by Soobin and Yeonjun, and ‘Quarter Life’ by Beomgyu, Taehyun, and Hueningkai, offered contrasting yet compelling experiences.

The setlist also featured the fan-favorite ‘Cat & Dog (English ver.)’, generating enthusiastic sing-alongs and cheers. Tomorrow X Together’s nod to local culture included brief covers of Sting’s ‘Englishman in New York’ and Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’, as well as sporting the jerseys of local teams like the NHL’s New York Rangers and the NBA’s Chicago Bulls.

Expressing their gratitude, Tomorrow X Together shared, “Seeing everyone dancing and singing along to our songs made us incredibly happy. It reminded us that our happiness comes from our fans, MOA. We will continue to work hard and strive to be a source of pride for MOA. Though we may not visit often, we promise to create unforgettable memories each time.”

Following their triumphant North American tour, Tomorrow X Together is set to continue their world tour in Japan this July, beginning with a performance at the Tokyo Dome. This will mark their first tour across Japan’s four major domes: Tokyo Dome, Kyocera Dome Osaka, Vantelin Dome Nagoya, and Fukuoka PayPay Dome. Before heading to Japan, Tomorrow X Together will also participate in the ‘2024 Weverse Con Festival’ at Incheon Yeongjongdo’s Inspire Entertainment Resort on June 15.
