Twice demonstrated the status of K-pop top girl group by attracting about 41,000 fans in the first tour in America.
Twice conducted the American tour "TWICE WORLD TOUR 2019", starting on July 17 (all times below are US time) at The Forum, LA, then to Mexico (July 19), Newark (July 21), and Chicago (July 23).
The girls displayed their ticketing power when amassing a total of 41,000 concertgoers in 4 shows, specifically 12,000 people in LA, 10,000 people in Mexico City, 11,000 people in Newark and 8,000 people in Chicago. This achievement is even more meaningful since their first American tour was conducted without any special promotion.
Every time Twice's hits sounded, the audience responded passionately when singing along in unison and dancing to it. Outside the concert venue, fans queued up in a long line to buy the group's goods.
The audience made a touching event when changing the color of Candy Bong (the group's lightstick) to mint - the typical color of Mina - to send to her, who couldn't attend the tour because of her health problem.
Although they didn't have much time on stage because of the hectic schedule, the members still shared their hearts and interacted with the audience by English. Additionally, the group also sent their thanks and promises in response to fans' enthusiastic cheer, "Thank you for helping us stand on this stage. We will come back next year."
After the Newark concert, many local media outlets like The Hollywood Reporter, Billboard, and MTV published relevant articles and showed their deep interest in Twice's first US tour.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote about the local atmosphere, "K-pop fans gathered at Newark, New Jersey's Prudential Center to take in a three-hour spectacle from Seoul superstars Twice." Billboard gave a positive review, "In 2015, TWICE arrived on the K-pop scene and sold more than 6 million albums since their debut -- but they have largely focused their touring efforts in Asia. This month, however, the “one in a million” girl group brought their TWICELIGHTS world tour to North America, showcased the diverse set of charms that have attracted fans from across the globe." MTV also reported, "K-pop stars Twice brought a kaleidoscope of color, confidence, and pride to their first U.S. tour."
After successfully wrapping up the first American tour, Twice will maintain the momentum of their 2019 world tour with the concert in Kuala Lumpur on August 17 and the 12-concert arena tour through 7 Japanese cities, starting with Hokkaido on October 23.
After releasing the Japanese single vol.4 "HAPPY HAPPY" on July 17, Twice went on to publish the single vol.5 "Breakthrough" on July 24.
