Kicking off on the second week of 2023, the tour commences with a performance at Singapore’s Expo Hall 3A on January 8, followed by stops at Bangkok’s Union Hall on January 13 and Manila’s New Frontier Theater on January 15. The tour will then travel to Japan for two dates at Tokyo’s Zepp Divercity on January 27 and Osaka’s Zepp Osaka Bayside on January 29, before rounding off with dates in Hong Kong’s Star Hall on February 3 and Taipei’s City Exhibition Hall on February 5.

The Asian leg of the ‘Follow The Movement’ world tour marks AOMG’s return to the region since 2017, when the label brought Jay Park, Loco, Simon Dominic, Gray and DJ Pumkin to perform at Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre in May that year.
AOMG was founded by ex-CEO Park in 2013, and featured himself and Gray on its first roster. Simon Dominic later joined the label in 2014 and served as its co-CEO until 2018, when he handed over his duties to DJ Pumkin. Park stepped down from his role as CEO on New Year’s Eve 2021.
Simon Dominic’s last full-length release was 2018’s ‘DARKROOM: roommates only’, which was then followed by his 2019 EP ‘No Open Flames’. This year, Loco and Gray released their collaborative singles, ‘Tasty x Tasty’ and ‘Be Ready’, the latter of which was produced by CODE KUNST. Kim Yugyeom released his debut solo EP ‘Point Of View: U’ in June 2021 after joining the label in February that year.
In 2021, Lee Hi released ‘4 ONLY’, her first album since joining the label in 2020. In a five-star review, NME’s Angela Patricia Suacillo highlighted the album’s cohesiveness, stating: “Although five years may feel like too long a wait for new music, Lee Hi makes it all worth it by producing a cohesive record that not only stays true to her roots, but one that allows her to explore genres that strengthen her identity as one of K-pop’s strongest vocalists”.
