SEVENTEEN will bring back their powerhouse performances to Manila with ‘SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR [BE THE SUN] – ASIA’ (hereinafter ‘BE THE SUN’) on October 8 and 9 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena, as announced on their official social media channels. Live Nation Philippines also confirmed tour dates in North America and other cities in Asia throughout the rest of 2022.
SEVENTEEN will kick off the tour on June 25 with two consecutive dates in Seoul, followed by shows in 12 North American cities. ‘BE THE SUN’ will be the K-pop supergroup’s first world tour in two years, after ‘SEVENTEEN WORLD TOUR ‘ prematurely ended in 2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The 13-piece act signalled the return of their highly-anticipated live shows earlier this year in May, with a fan meet in Japan that amassed 60,000 fans.
SEVENTEEN released their fourth studio album Face the Sun last May. The nine-track album led by “HOT” crossed the 1 million mark on the first day of release and racked up over 2 million sales in a single week. SEVENTEEN are the second artist in K-pop history to record over 2 million first-week sales, following BTS.

Racking up 2 billion streams and selling 10 million albums, SEVENTEEN—comprised of S.COUPS, JEONGHAN, JOSHUA, JUN, HOSHI, WONWOO, WOOZI, THE 8, MINGYU, DK, SEUNGKWAN, VERNON, and DINO—have rocketed to the forefront of the music scene fueled by a fiercely independent spirit and a nonpareil in-house creative ecosystem. The act’s innovative structure hinges on the interplay of three units: hip-hop, vocal, and performance. Living up to the title of “K-pop Stage-breakers,” SEVENTEEN has become one of the biggest groups ever due to its world-class synchronization, jaw-dropping choreography, and tight teamwork. The performance powerhouse made its U.S. television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden in 2021 and followed it with unforgettable performances on The Kelly Clarkson Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!. SEVENTEEN’s latest release, Face the Sun, made its debut at No.7 on the Billboard 200. The release also marked a new milestone in K-pop, rendering SEVENTEEN only the second artist in K-pop history to cross 2 million sales in the first week of release following BTS.
