The boy band was performing their first Singapore show at the Singapore Indoor Stadium to a sold-out crowd yesterday (9 Sep). It was part of their The Fellowship: Break The Wall world tour.
Take a blink – and the boys erupted into a wild dance break, where they refused to let any available limb in their body go idle.
While ATEEZ is an eight-piece band, only seven members played in Singapore. Main vocalist Jongho did not participate due to an ankle injury. He suspended performances for a complete recovery.
The pirates of K-pop
Dubbed the pirates of K-pop, Wonderland (2019) is fully representative of their moniker. The boys have committed to their long-running concept of being pirates, which even saw member Seonghwa bringing out a sword.
It’s common for K-pop bands to perform with a concept or theme. But what’s surprising is that ATEEZ’s pirate concept is long-running and extensively thought out, to say the least.
Even die-hard ATINYs, as their fans are affectionately termed, are trying their best to unpack the group’s intricate fictional exploit. One which touches on a Möbius Strip and a multiverse.
It’s completely fine if you’ve not completely digested their backstory. There’s really no reason why you can’t enjoy their music on its own.
ATEEZ played more than 20 songs throughout the show. And this Singapore concert marks their 43rd show in the whole tour.
Their fans’ enthusiastic chants of “break the wall”, which happens to be the title of the show, reverberated around the indoor arena.
Fans are our source of energy and inspiration: ATEEZ
After watching ATEEZ’s show, the phrase break the wall brings about a different notion to me. The boy band is really about bringing themselves to ATINY, their source of energy and inspiration, as they told HallyuSG previously.
Between songs, some members went backstage to equip themselves with headset microphones.
Later in the performance, ATEEZ also challenged fans to an interactive dance challenge.
A live feed footage of a fan and a member grooving to the chorus of their newest hit was also screened.
