Looking for a way to keep up with all of your favorite K-pop bands on tour? Here, we’ve compiled a list of K-pop artists planning to tour this year and those who we hope will announce a tour soon.
BTS, TWICE, ONEUS, and more, K-pop bands are more globally recognized for their genre each year. As K-pop continues to experiment and expand, leading the rest of the world in virtual concerts and metaverse events, its artists are climbing the charts and our own personal playlists.
Here are the K-pop Tours Happening This Year—The Best K-pop Concerts in 2022.
ATEEZ: The Fellowship: Beginning of the End
Tour Dates: January 7, 2022 – January 31, 2022
Already, just a week into 2022, K-pop boy band ATEEZ is starting the year off strong with a world tour. Still soaring from the December 2021 release of their 6-track EP ZERO : FEVER EPILOGUE, ATEEZ are taking this momentum straight into this year’s live performances.
Last year, ATEEZ were the fifth most-tweeted-about artists—behind only BTS, Kanye West, Beyoncé, and Drake. Since their 2018 debut, ATEEZ quickly became one of the most famous boy bands in the world. Are you late to the pristine K-pop music of ATEEZ? Take a chance and catch them live in 2022, on “The Fellowship: Beginning of the End Tour.”
Tour Dates: January 20, 2022 – February 27, 2022
Before the COVID pandemic, South Korean boy band Monsta X were no strangers to touring overseas and connecting with fans abroad. Now, after much delay, Monsta X is getting ready to reunite with their more distant fans on tour this winter.
Originally scheduled for 2020, the “2022 Monsta X World Tour” will launch in North America on January 20th in NYC. Monsta X’s The Dreaming, their ninth studio album and second English-language record, was released this past December with high acclaim. Monsta X and their fans have a lot to celebrate on their upcoming world tour—hopefully with more dates announced in the near future.
Twice: 4th World Tour ‘III’
Tour Dates: Feb 16, 2022 – Feb 26, 2022
Last year was a big one for South Korean girl group TWICE. Not only did they announce their upcoming world tour in 2022, “4th World Tour III.” TWICE released a whole new studio album, Formula of Love: O+T=<3, as well.
Band members Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu, are more than ready to be reunited with their fans in North America. Since their debut in 2015, TWICE has reputed major U.S success. We are confident 2022 will be another big year for TWICE and their fans, ONCE.
Tour Dates: TBA
Just yesterday (Jan. 13) K-pop boy band ONEUS released a teaser trailer on YouTube that points, pretty clearly, to a 2022 world tour. The six-member group hasn’t been on the radar for that long, their debut EP Light Us having arrived in January 2019. But ONEUS’ trajectory, along with their fan base, has only sky-rocketed since then.
The dates haven’t been made official, but the trailer shows ONEUS in a spooky cemetery with the words “BLOOD MOON” written in red at the bottom of the screen. The names of major U.S cities play at the end of the trailer. Fans have rightfully concluded that the “BLOOD MOON TOUR” will hit those cities in 2022.
K-pop Bands We Want to Tour in 2022
According to various sources within the K-pop world, Stray Kids are looking like they’re getting ready to announce a tour in 2022. Stray Kids confirmed they have both in-person and virtual events planned for 2022, including the second #LoveSTAY fan meeting, SKZ’s Chocolate Factory.
Formed through a reality show of the same name, Stray Kids continue to defy popularity by being one of the most famous entities in the world. Clearly, there will be no stopping Stray Kids from connecting with fans, making new ones, and taking their act bot in-person and virtual this year. We expect Stray Kids will announce their 2022 tour, soon.
