The singer, who rose to prominence as both a Wonder Girls member and a soloist in her own right, will be bringing her solo tour to Asia and North America in the first half of 2018, it was announced late Tuesday night (Jan. 15). The tour will kick off in Seoul on Feb. 24, and currently is set to end in Tokyo on May 23, though the announcement post promises “more” shows to come.
Venues have yet to be announced.
Sunmi released her first solo song “Full Moon” in 2013, and each single she’s released since has gone on to become an immense hit in the South Korean music scene, largely thanks to her dynamic lyrical narratives through which she explores ideas of femininity and love, and her captivating, theatrical performances.
Her 2017 hit song “Gashina” was one of the best songs of that year, and defined her identity as a soloist in a post-Wonder Girls world after the iconic act’s breakup that January. Last year, she released the singles “Heroine” and “Siren” along with her Warning EP, which gives the tour its title.
Within hours of Sunmi’s tour being announced, the artist’s name trended worldwide on Twitter as fans expressed excitement over the news.
The North American dates of Sunmi’s Warning world tour are as follows:
March 6 — San Francisco
March 7 — Los Angeles
March 10 — Seattle
March 11 — Vancouver
March 13 — Calgary
March 15 — New York
March 16 — Toronto
