The group held their first live concert of the year in February 2022. The highly anticipated event took place seven months after their two-day virtual fan meeting in 2021. Due to the overwhelming response from the fans, the two-day concert was turned into a three-day event. As a result, a second concert was held on February 11 at 8 p.m. as part of their 'LOONAVERSE: FROM' tour.
