Over the last weekend iKON once again thrilled an Arena full of fans with a setlist of old favorites and some new Christmas performances during their two day iKON Xmas Live Concert.
If you are a fan of iKON you probably know what a treat their live performances are. The boys have perfected having contagious fun with engaging interludes on stage and their sheer kinetic energy is something that fan accounts have said is one of a kind and a must to experience.
A new live performance is always cause for excitement and fans who looked forward to the Christmas Show were not disappointed. The special element of this Show was no doubt the wholly Vocal Line Stages which were the first of their kind for iKON Concerts.
On a beautiful 360 degree Centre stage that lit up, lifted and dipped along to the music, iKON performed many of their original hits with a fresh feeling that made one realize why they are favorites.
Bobby was also able to perform a solo stage of “Swim”, a track from his debut album. The big surprise was when he performed another track, “Secret” along with fellow iKON member Donghyuk and KPop Star 4 winner and label mate trainee Katie Kim!
Katie Kim also joined iKON’s Vocal Line for a soulful rendition of the seasonal classic ‘White Christmas.’
Many Japanese News Portals covered the Show and were full of praise for iKON’s continued and consistent Showmanship.
iKON reportedly drew an audience of 30000 over the two days of their Concert to the venue that not long ago hosted the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) – a feat to be proud of for a merely two year old Korean group!
YGE has announced that iKON whose first Variety Show, JTBC’s iKON Picnic aka Idol School Trip just aired its final episode, will be coming back with an album in January 2018.
We all certainly hope so.
