The band’s last world tour was in 2019, called “Twicelights,” which took place between May 2019 to February 2020. Given the advent of COVID-19 pandemic, the tour was cut short, and several concerts had to be canceled, much to the disappointment of many fans.

Fans have taken to social media to show their excitement, with several ready to travel across continents just to attend the concert.
European and South American fans of the band have requested that they make an appearance on their continents.
Meanwhile, several K-Pop bands have announced world tours, now that the threat of the pandemic is slowly reducing.
