Talk about exclusive! NCT 127 is making their way to Atlanta’s State Farm Arena, Friday, Jan. 13 and we’re on a very short list of U.S. cities that’ll get to see them.
State Farm Arena shared the big news on social media that Atlanta was chosen as one out of three cities scheduled for the U.S. leg of the group’s tour. While tickets do go on sale Monday, Dec. 19 at 3 p.m., fans seem to want answers now!
Members TAEIL, JOHNNY, TAEYONG, YUTA, DOYOUNG, JAEHYUN, JUNGWOO, MARK, and HAECHAN have soared to new heights in the K-Pop world. This past October, the group saw continued success, when they performed sold-out bicoastal arena shows in the U.S. to celebrate the release of their latest album, 질주 (2 Baddies). The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, making the group only the second K-Pop artist in history to land three albums in the Top 5. According to a press release, even Billboard raved about it, saying “The album’s sound, meanwhile, shows off the idols’ eclectic versatility as they run through R&B, pop, electronic dance and hip-hop-leaning sounds.”
The groups accolades don’t stop there – they’ve got 3.9M+ monthly Spotify listeners, 14.8M+ Instagram followers, 8.6M+ Twitter followers, and even appeared on the “Jennifer Hudson Show.”
If you aren’t familiar with the groups history, NCT 127 is the acronym for “Neo Culture Technology” and the number 127 represents the longitudinal coordinate of Seoul, the home of K-pop. NCT 127 made its debut in July 2016 with their smash hit “Fire Truck” and the success continued with massive singles “Cherry Bomb” and “Simon Says.”
