SB19’s PAGTATAG! World Tour commenced last June in Manila and is set to conclude on December 9 in Tokorozawa, Japan. The Singapore show comes as part of the Asia run of the tour and was supposed to happen on November 15 (Wednesday). After Singapore, the P-Pop boy group will hold stops in Bangkok (November 19), Dubai (November 24), and Japan (December 9). No announcement has been made about the remainder stops of the tour and are expected to proceed as scheduled.
Earlier this year, SB19 performed at stops in Davao, Bacolod, Arlington, Chicago, Redwood City, Anaheim, New York City, Washington, D.C, Pickering, Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Edmonton. The tour was launched in support of their most recent EP, PAGTATAG!
In a review of the EP, Billboard Philippines wrote, “PAGTATAG! shows SB19 heading to a new direction and playing around with new sounds — one that infuses pop, hip-hop, EDM, and acoustic elements. Translated in English, the title literally means “establishment” which is a fitting name for a record that seeks to cement a new era for the group’s image and artistry. Regardless of the fact the album serves as their first release under their own label, there’s clearly something special brewing in the production of this project.”
