Seventeen Kick Off Their Be The Sun World Tour with Excited CARATs at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul


Two years and four months after their ‘Ode to You’ World Tour came to a premature end in 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, K-pop band Seventeen returned to the stage, much to the delight of their dedicated fandom, the CARATs. The 13-member band kicked off their Be The Sun world tour at the Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul on Saturday with a concert spanning almost three hours.

The K-pop stage-breakers made their grand return to the concert stage with two sold-out shows of ‘BE THE SUN – Seoul’, which are set to be the largest concert in the city with a live audience since the onset of the pandemic. Day 1 on June 25 was characterised by energetic performances, dazzling costumes and mindblowing stages that Seventeen is known for.

The members talked about missing the experience of performing on stage for so long. “We have really missed you,” the members said while addressing the CARATs after their opening act. They went on to perform songs like March, HIT, Rock With You and Boom Boom in black and gold outfits.

The show will also included performances of tracks that have never been presented before on stage, as well as fan favorites from the three units (Vocal, Performance, Hip-Hop units) that together complete SEVENTEEN.
