Stargazer Astro New Spring Concert

The new concerts will be held on May 28th (18:00 KST) and May 29th (17:00 KST). The events, titled “Stargazer,” will be the first performances since the debut of the Astro sub-units JINJIN&ROCKY and MOONBIN&SANHA.

The events will be held at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium and streamed internationally for the countless global Aroha fans.

According to the group’s company Fantagio, the new standalone concerts will feature much more mature performances (compared to those in the group’s past) that reflect how the member’s careers as individuals and as a group have grown in the last three years.

“Stargazer” follows the group’s most recent fan meeting held this April. The event, titled “GATE 6” was held at SK Olympic Handball Gymnasium and streamed internationally.

ASTRO released their most recent album, “SWITCH ON,” last summer. The record included the participation of each member.

“Astro’s cute, soft boy front is surely what they’re most known for, but Switch On highlights their ability to remain starkly themselves while also traversing new musical territory.

The album features a well-balanced mix of previously unexplored genres for the group, including tropical-infused EDM, disco pop, and house.

At the same time, Switch On still has that familiar Astro touch, with a few acoustic ballads and all-around feel-good songs featuring strong, catchy vocals to capture a laid-back, summery vibe.”
