SM Entertainment girl group Aespa will be heading off on their first ever U.S. tour this year. The SYNK : HYPER LINE tour will move stateside mid-August, kicking off in Los Angeles at the Crypto.com Arena and wrapping up the U.S. leg in New York. The global tour will continue to Mexico, South America, and Europe afterwards.
Aespa debuted in 2020 with their song “Black Mamba,” which broke records right off the bat. Their 2021 EP, Savage, set off their uphill climb, becoming the highest ranking Kpop girl group entry on the Billboard 200 chart in the U.S. and hitting the number one spot in 20 countries on iTunes upon release. Continuing this momentum, the group also became the first K-pop girl group to perform at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York in 2021, and they won their first and second Daesang awards at that year’s Asia Artist Awards and MelOn Music Awards. The four members earned even more achievements in 2022, starting off with more awards at the Golden Disc Awards and the Korean Music Awards, including Song of the Year and Artist of the Year. The group performed at the world famous Coachella music festival in April, as part of 88rising’s joint set on the main stage, and the group was included in Time Magazine’s Next Generation Leaders list as well as Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list.
