K-Pop girl group ITZY are coming back to Manila in August.

Live Nation Philippines made the announcement last night (January 25) when they re-shared the full list of tour dates from ITZY’s official social media pages. Their Manila stop will take place on August 3 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Ticket details have yet to be revealed. Watch this space for more updates.

The Born To Be tour is set to kick off in Seoul’s Jamsil Indoor Stadium this February 24 to 25. The girl group will be making stops in Thailand, Australia, and North America before wrapping up the tour in Manila and Hong Kong in August. ITZY’s first solo concert in the Philippines also took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena last January 14, 2023. The show was part of the group’s very first world tour, titled Checkmate.

Last December, the quintet returned to the Philippines as part of the 8th Asia Artist Awards alongside fellow K-Pop groups like NewJeans, STAYC, Stray Kids, LE SSERAFIM, and more. In a review by Billboard Philippines of ITZY’s performance at the awards ceremony, we wrote, “Decked out in all white, the members of ITZY were visions to behold on the stage. Though Lia was absent from the performance, the other four members still managed to give it their all –– delivering a marvelous performance that gave justice to their title as one of the best 4th Gen acts.”

“Yeji, Ryujin, Chaeryeong, and Yuna demonstrated an impactful stage presence that was made all the more impressive by the dance break they featured in the middle of their showcase. To those at the arena, hearing “Kill Shot” and “CAKE” live may have already stood as a highlight for many, but the girls of ITZY gave us visuals and more to prove to us and the rest of the world that they are, in fact, a formidable girl group on the scene.”
