Girl group Twice has successfully kicked off the first American tour's concert at The Forum, Los Angeles, USA with Mina's absence.
This concert is more meaningful when being organized at The Forum - where international pop stars such as Elvis Presley, The Jackson 5, Freddie Mercury, Lady Gaga, etc. set foot on. At the same time, it is the opening venue for the first American tour since the debut of Twice - the representative K-pop group.
According to management agency JYP Entertainment, the global ONCE (fandom name) has created a spectacular scene when they lined up in an endless line in front of the pop-up store selling goods related to Twice. In addition, even though all seats were fixed very early, enormous fans flocked into the concert venue and created a festival-like scene from before the concert with K-pop singing and dancing cover.
At the concert, Twice delivered monumental performances through loads of hits released during the last time along with unit stages, thereby bringing excitement to local fans who have waited for Twice's first American concert. The fans responded to Twice's enthusiastic stages with a singalong and the girls also actively led the fans' response, thereby enjoying the performance together.
In particular, Twice's cover stage of the song "I WANT YOU BACK" (The Jackson 5) gained explosive reactions. As the veteran band in the pop music industry, The Jackson 5 also performed at The Forum previously, Twice's version of "I WANT YOU BACK" has evoked deep feelings of native fans who love the original version of the song.
After that, the audience brought touching feelings when preparing a special event for Mina, the member who could not join the tour for health reasons. During the stage of the song "AFTER MOON" in the setlist, they changed the color of Candybong lightstick to mint color - the representative color of Mina - and filled up The Forum with this color. In front of this scene, 8 members also expressed their determination and together wished Mina an early recovery and return, "We will definitely return with a 9-member lineup."
After successfully wrapping up the LA concert - the first stop of the American tour under the 2019 world tour "TWICELIGHTS", Twice will continue to meet local fans in Mexico City on July 19, Newark on July 21, Chicago on July 23.
