ITZY adds Hong Kong concert to Checkmate tour – different set list than Seoul and U.S. concerts

South Korean girl group ITZY has added a Hong Kong concert to the Asian part of their ‘Checkmate‘ worldwide tour (a ‘worldwide’ tour that is basically Asia and the U.S.)

ITZY’s Hong Kong concert was announced on the group’s official Twitter account, and will take place at AsiaWorld Expo, Hall 5 & 7, in Chek Lap Kok starting at 6 PM local time.

Tickets go on sale for ITZY’s Hong Kong concert via Live Nation in a pre-sale starting on February 1st at 10 AM HKT, with a general sale kicking off the day after at the same time.

Ticket prices are from HKD699 to HKD1,799 plus administrative fees (see seating chart below).

You can get more information via Live Nation’s Hong Kong Facebook page.

 

ITZY themselves debuted in February, 2019, with the release of their albumĀ It’z Different.

The group had one of the biggest debuts on the Billboard charts for any Korean group, making it to #2 on the World Digital Song Sales chart, with their single ‘Dalla Dalla’.

The music video for the song also debuted that week as the #2 most-watched music video on YouTube.

Since their debut, ITZY has toured the U.S., then kicked off their first worldwide tour — Checkmate — in Seoul, South Korea last August.

In October, ITZY headed back to the U.S. for eight concerts on the tour late last year, before two shows in Manila, Phillippines earlier this month.

With seven more concerts on the tour still to go, including ITZY’s Hong Kong concert, it will be April 8th before they end the tour at Bangkok’s Thunder Dome.

And, by the way, if you are in Hong Kong and have already seen ITZY live on their Checkmate tour in either the U.S. or Seoul, you should pick up tickets as the set list for all of their upcoming concerts is a different one.

Watch ITZY’s music video for their song ‘Cheshire‘ below, and you will get an idea of the type of cool performance you can expect.
