Stray Kids World Tour?

According to JYP Entertainment’s financial report for 2022, the successful entertainment company is planning a world tour for one of their most popular acts, the eight-member K-pop group, Stray Kids.

Throughout 2018 and 2019, Stray Kids toured the world with their two world tours.

  • In March 2020, JYPE canceled the remainder of the “District 9: Unlock” in Europe tour due to the emergence and spread of the COVID virus, which halted all music performances around the globe.

Fans speculate that the upcoming performances might start in Europe since the financial report stated that the group would be “resuming” the canceled tour. Included cities were Madrid, Berlin, London, Brussels, Paris, and Moscow.

Stray Kids, Music, and COVID

While the group was unable to tour during the reign of COVID, Stray Kids have used the time off the road for growing their reach.

  • In the last year, Stray Kids have gained millions of new fans and listeners who have discovered the group through their various projects and releases.
    • For example, in 2021, Stray Kids won the Mnet competition show “Kindom: Legendary War.”

Furthermore, Stray Kids have also wowed audiences with a wave of new music in the last two years, including two full-length albums and a repackaged album.

  • Their 2021 full-length record “NO EASY” made this group the first JYPE artist to sell one million copies.

During COVID, Stray Kids have highlighted their global reach and popularity with their music that has broken records for JYP and the group.
