K-pop girl group TWICE is coming back to Singapore. This time, it will be for their fifth world tour, titled Ready to Be.
They will be playing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. It has an estimated capacity of 7,000 to 12,000 for entertainment shows.
The girls have brought all their world tours to Singapore, since their debut in 2015. Except their fourth world tour, titled III, as it was partially disrupted due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Their last performance here in 2019 saw only eight members, as vocalist Mina was “struggling with sudden extreme anxiety and insecurity toward performing on stage,” a statement wrote.
And their fourth one will come soon, after a four-year gap.
TWICE’s new album drop: Ready to Be
Since then, the group’s concept has seen quite a drastic change – from mainly pushing out upbeat and bubblegum pop music to gradually charismatic, and even chic sounds.
They performed the latter, an upbeat track with full English lyrics, at the 2023 Billboard Women in Music.
The iconic Empire State building in New York was also subsequently lit up with TWICE’s official band colours – apricot and neon magenta.
TWICE, alongside Republic Records, collaborated with non-profit organization Musicians On Call to celebrate the healing power of music.

They also took the chance to promote their latest track Set Me Free (2023).
Continuing their stateside activities TWICE will be touring different parts of the US in the first part of their world tour. This includes Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago.
Its second part will then drop by Singapore, alongside London, Bangkok and Bulacan.
