KCON has announced that their upcoming US tour will merge the two-day line-ups into one show due to “unforeseen circumstances.”[s] and technical difficulties.
The K-pop festival was originally scheduled to feature two evenings of entertainment in each city: San Francisco, Minneapolis, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta and New York.
But in an announcement made earlier today (July 27), KCON said the first night of shows for each city – scheduled to feature CRAVITY and LIGHTSUM – will be canceled and tickets refunded. These artists will join STAYC and TO1 on the second night instead, for a show that will last approximately 120 minutes.
The scheduled performances of CRAVITY, LIGHTSUM, STAYC and TO1 at KCON Los Angeles, which are scheduled to take place from August 19 to 21, are not affected by these adjustments and will take place as scheduled.
KCON’s adjusted tour dates are now as follows:
Tuesday 23 – San Francisco, Orpheum Theater
Thursday 25 – Minneapolis, State Theater
Saturday 27 – Houston, The Hobby Center Sarofim Hall
Sunday 28 – Dallas, Texas Trust CU Theater
Tuesday 30 – Atlanta, The East
Thursday 1 – New York, Terminal 5

Ticket holders for the first night of shows will receive refunds and a separate email with codes and instructions on how to redeem tickets for the rescheduled shows at a discount. Fans who purchased tickets for the second night of shows, meanwhile, are not affected by the ticketing adjustments. Find all remaining tickets for KCON’s US Tour here.
A separate announcement regarding adjustments to scheduled meet and greets with featured acts is expected in the coming days.
KCON’s upcoming U.S. tour is the first K-pop festival spin-off tour in the country and is headlined by four “next-gen” groups, namely CRAVITY, LIGHTSUM, STAYC, and TO1.
