NCT 127 is set to perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on July 2. This marks their second concert in the city-state, following their ‘Neo City – The Origin’ tour in 2019. Notably, this also marks the first K-pop concert held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The group kicked off their ongoing tour with a three-night residency at Seoul, South Korea’s Gocheok Sky Dome in December 2021. Earlier this week, NCT 127 completed the Japan leg of their tour with a two-night show at Osaka’s Kyocera Dome.
‘Neo City – The Link’ has been touted as the K-pop group’s second world tour so far. NCT 127’s first world tour was prematurely cancelled due to COVID-19.
