Boy band Enhypen will hold its second world tour with performances in Tokyo Dome and in stadiums in the U.S., its agency Belift Lab announced Wednesday.

Titled “Enhypen World Tour ‘Fate’,” the boy band will kick off with a two-day performance at the KSPO Dome, Songpa District in southern Seoul on July 29 and 30, followed by performances in Osaka, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Glendale, Houston, Dallas, Newark and Chicago from September.

The upcoming world tour marks Enhypen’s first Japanese dome tour and first U.S. stadium tour. The band will perform in Tokyo Dome and Kyocera Osaka Dome in Japan, followed by a performance in Dignity Health Sports Park in California.

Performing in dome stadiums in Japan and in sports stadiums in the U.S. is considered a significant achievement by K-pop acts due to the audience capacity of such venues.

Thirteen performances in nine different cities around the world have been confirmed so far and more destinations will follow, according to the agency.

Enhypen dropped its fourth EP “Dark Blood” on May 22, which sold 1.32 million copies in the first week of its release.

Enhypen debuted in November 2020 under Belift Lab, a subsidiary of HYBE. The band was formed in September of the same year through cable network Mnet and HYBE’s audition show “I-LAND” (2020).

The seven members of the band are: Sunoo, Jake, Jay, Heeseung, Sunghoon, Jungwon and Ni-ki. The band’s most popular tracks include “Drunk-Dazed,” “Fever” from EP “Border: Carnival” (2021), “Given-Taken” from EP “Border: Day One” (2020) and “Polaroid Love” from repackaged full-length album “Dimension: Answer” (2022).
