Following the success of their U.S. tour last year, NCT 127 is embarking on their second stateside tour titled, “NEO CITY THE AWARDS.” While last year’s tour took the group to nine stops at mid- to medium-sized venues, this year’s tour will be an arena tour with fewer stops. The group will kick off the six-stop tour in New York and make their way westward to finish off in Seattle.
NCT 127 was the second unit of NCT to debut, having had their introduction to the public in 2016 with the dance track “Fire Truck.” With NCT being a rotational group, the unit’s lineup has also seen a few changes these past four years. Originally debuting with Taeyong, Taeil, Jaehyun, Mark, Yuta, Winwin, and Haechan, the group has since then added members Johnny, Doyoung, and Jungwoo, while Winwin has moved on to promote with NCT’s Chinese unit, WayV.
Known as the Seoul-based unit with the numbers 127 representing the longitude coordinates for Seoul, the group is NCT’s most active group, touring and performing the most outside of South Korea. Just last year with the release of their fourth mini album, “We Are Superhuman,” the group even signed on with American label Capitol Records. Said album debuted and peaked at number eleven on the Billboard 200 albums chart and brought on numerous U.S. opportunities for the group, including becoming the first ever Korean artist to perform at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
At time of press, NCT 127 is also preparing for the release of their second studio album, “Neo Zone.” The album, which is scheduled to be released on March 6th, features their song “Dreams Come True,” which came out on NCT 127 Day on January 27th. This comeback will serve as the return for member Jungwoo, who went on hiatus in November 2019 due to health concerns.
