[UPDATE, 20 April: this post was updated with ticketing details.]
Rising K-pop stars Wanna One have announced their first world tour.
The group staged their first fanmeeting late last year, which included stops in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong, among other Asian cities. This time, the 11 boys are back for a full-fledged world tour, with stops in America, Australia and Asia.
Wanna One made their hot debut last year, as a product of survival programme Produce 101 (Season 2). Despite their rookie status, the group has not lost out among the bigger names in K-Pop, having won awards at various Korean music award ceremonies and topped brand recognition charts.
Promoters One Production have confirmed a July date for the group's show in Singapore. The dates and destinations for the Asian leg of the tour are as follows:
13 July – Singapore
15 July – Jakarta
21 July – Kuala Lumpur
28-29 July – Hong Kong
4-5 August – Bangkok
25-26 August – Taipei
1 September – Manila
Wanna One will be performing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on 13 July. Tickets are priced at $348 (VIP), $288, $258, $238, $198, and $148 (excluding booking fees). Tickets will go on sale to Singtel mobile customers on Friday, 27 April from 10am to 11.59pm and to the general public on Saturday, 28 April at 12pm via all Sports Hub ticketing channels. All Cat 1 ticket holders are entitled to a lucky draw to win the chance to attend a special “Wanna One send off event”.
