There can be no denying that after a rough patch attributed to global COVID-19 restrictions keeping live entertainment in the back-burner, concerts have returned to full swing, as evidenced by the concerts in Southeast Asia that have been held since 2022.

In India alone, we’ve seen some of the biggest global entertainment names such as Imagine Dragons, Jackson Wang and Diplo filling out stadiums once more, with others announcing their imminent arrivals on local shores in the coming months.

Be that as it may, the fact stands that India isn’t always going to wind up on the tour schedule for our favourite singers or bands. In this case, the best alternative is to look beyond our borders and check out the concerts that are taking place across Southeast Asia! From pop to R&B, here are some of the biggest concerts in Southeast Asia happening in the second half of 2023.

This is courtesy of their genre-blending approach to music, which they have dubbed as ‘Mixxx Pop’, combining two distinct genres into a single, addictive composition. And with the success of their debut EP, Expérgo, being certified platinum thrice by the Korea Music Content Association, it’s safe to say that they’re off to a good start.

While he has seen unparalleled commercial popularity as a member of the group, Min Yoon-gi has enjoyed a considerably successful career by releasing music as a solo artist, granting him a greater sense of creative autonomy over his output.
