These two US shows are NCT 127’s first shows outside of Asia since the tour’s commencement. When the world tour was first announced in 2021, SM Entertainment said in a statement that it would “take them to various major cities across the globe”, per Soompi. More stops are expected to be announced in the coming months.
‘Neo City – The Link’ first kicked off with a three-night residency at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul in December 2021, before the group embarked on a dome tour across three major cities in Japan in May and June this year. As part of the Asian leg of the tour, NCT 127 held a concert in Singapore last month, and are set to land in the Filipino capital city of Manila on September 4.
The NCT subunit’s tour announcement also comes less than a week after the boyband officially announced their September comeback with their fourth full-length album ‘질주 (2 Baddies)’, led by a title track of the same name.
Due out September 16, the forthcoming record will feature 12 new tracks and will mark NCT 127’s first music since October 2021’s ‘Favorite’, a repackaged edition of their third album ‘Sticker’ that featured the R&B dance-pop title song ‘Favorite (Vampire)’.
