Twice sells out Tokyo Dome shows
According to the agency, the two concerts scheduled to be held on March 3 and 4 were completely sold out just three minutes after they went on sale on Feb. 9.
The two shows are a part of their “Twicelights” world tour which kicked off last May and ends with a finale in Seoul next month.
Performing at the Tokyo Dome is an achievement that usually takes years for foreign artists to reach and is considered a direct indicator of a band’s success in the country. Just 21 months after their debut, Twice performed at the Tokyo Dome last March, the shortest time a foreign artist has ever taken to make it to that stage.
“The group’s recent Japanese album ‘&TWICE -Repackage-’ and its new track ‘SWING’ are also gaining popularity amongst local listeners,” the agency said.
The album and song topped Japan’s Line Music weekly chart from Feb. 5 to 11.
Their Seoul finale will be held on March 7 and 8 at the KSPO Dome, southern Seoul.
