An earlier concert at Incheon Munhak Sports Complex Main Stadium in Korea will be held on August 26th, totaling 5 concerts with the full group. Ticket information for the Korean concert will be available at a later date.
The last time all 23 members performed together was during the NCT 2020 era for Beyond Live’s NCT : RESONANCE ‘Global Wave’ performance on December 27, 2020, an online-only concert without any in-person audiences due to COVID-19 restrictions. The following year, members Lucas and Winwin were unable to participate in the NCT 2021, Universe album and promotions.
The NCT Nation concert announcement comes to many as a surprise given recent news, including:
・Sungchan and Shotaro’s recent departure from NCT, both of whom debuted in NCT 2020 and were expected to participate in the new NCT Tokyo (Japan) group. NCT Tokyo, the tentative name, is the last of the NCT group that will be part of NCT’s “infinite expansion” concept.
・Shohei, who was part of SMRookies and anticipated to debut in NCT’s new team, stepping away due to health-related issues
・Lucas’ decision to withdraw from NCT and WayV to pursue solo projects
