TWICE sets a new record at the end of its 2nd US Arena Tour

TWICE’s fourth world tour “III” becomes the most attended tour ever by a Korean girl group in North America, selling over 1,000,000 tickets.

TWICE is a South Korean girl group under JYP Entertainment, consisting of nine members – Nayeon, Jongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu. They debuted in October 2015 with the EP The story begins and title track Like OOH-AAH. Since then, the group has enjoyed enormous success both nationally and internationally. They have been referred to as “King of Girl Groups” and “Nation’s Girl Group” by Korean media due to their huge album sales and impact on the industry.

They have also held several sold-out tours since their debut. Their very first tour was Twiceland – The Opening, in February 2017, and the first world tour TWICELIGHTS in May 2019. TWICE embarked on their fourth world tour “III” on December 25, 2021 and have just completed the American leg of the tour in UBS Arena, Elmont on February 27, 2022.

TWICE have become the first K-pop girl group to stage two different arena tours in the world’s biggest music market, after completing the seven-date U.S. leg of the world tour. The nine-member group has previously performed in the United States as part of their 2019 tour, TWICELIGHTS, which included three concerts in the arenas of Wintrust Arena in Chicago, Prudential Center in Newark and the Forum in Los Angeles. Their latest tour included seven shows, including two at The Forum, stops at Oakland Arena, Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, State Farm Arena in Atlanta, and two sold-out nights at UBS Arena. Originally, only one date was scheduled for LA and NY, but due to high demand, second shows were immediately added to both locations.

This is the first time that a female K-pop artist can perform in different arenas in the United States. 2NE1 and BLACKPINK are the only girl groups to have completed arena tours but have yet to return to the United States for follow-up performances. Moreover, TWICE is only the fifth K-pop act to have so many arena tours in the history of the K-pop industry.

TWICE’s final performance on their fourth world tour “III” included their smash hits like Feelings, Alcohol-free, More and more, I can not stopand Cry for me. They also performed B-sides – Queen, Cactus, Moonlight, and Rewind of their latest albums, as well as their very first sub-unit songs, push pull (by Sana, Jihyo and Dahyun), Hello (by Nayeon, Momo and Chaeyoung) and 1,3,2 (by Jongyeon, Mina and Tzuyu). The encore stage was filled with their old hits like TT, I love, To rolland foolish love to name a few.

The girl group, just like their previous tours, put on a show with a stunning production that included towering LED light displays, multi-level platforms and a long track that allowed the group to showcase their songs from different manners.
