I first saw Seventeen perform live at their Diamond Edge Tour stop in Dallas back in 2017 and so I already knew what fantastic performers they are.
One of the larger Kpop groups with 13 extremely talented members they had two stops in Texas for this tour, Dallas and Houston. That might of been partially responsible for the smaller than usual audience. However it turned out that didn’t really matter as the fans, known as ‘Carats’, were pumped up and loud enough make the boys exclaim frequently at the volume and intensity of the energy in the venue.
Also responsible for the lower turnout might be the sheer number of Kpop groups and soloists that have been coming to Texas recently, as well as the high price for concert tickets, oh and the distances we have to drive. (This concert was over 400 miles / 650 km round trip driving for me, and many fans drove even further.)
Two members were unfortunately unable to perform, S. Coups who has been on hiatus for health reasons, and The 8 who had caught a cold. The remaining eleven members, Jonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, D.K. Mingyu, Woozi, Seungkwan, Vernon, and Dino, did an incredible job filling in and wowing us with their skill and talents to the point were I could almost forget the missing members. But I mean who could not totally miss those two! I hope they both take enough time to get well and I hope they know we do miss them, but we want them to get healthy first.
They moved around so much it was hard to get all 11 in any one photo!
They sang most of the fan favorites, mine being Very Nice and Clap.
They were silly,
And particularly for the second half of the concert, happy. I felt they were a little unsure at the beginning of the evening both with them having to fill in for two members and with how the crowd would react.
Usually I do a review, but today I’m just going to tell you the concert was great, they sang amazingly, danced incredibly and you missed out if you didn’t go.
And if you ever get the chance to see Seventeen, grab it.
They had some cool stage sets too.
Overall it was a really great evening. I had fun chatting with old and new friends both in line and once inside the venue. I had a good seat and got to watch an amazing show performed by eleven extremely talented and handsome young men. What could be better than that!
Have a great day everyone.
