After a year, SB19 announced their return to the music scene and said that they will hold a world tour and release a new single next month.
WYAT [Where You At] Tour will kick off on September 17 at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, followed by a series of shows in Clark, Cebu, and Davao, among others.
Following the local shows of SB19, the group will fly to the United States, United Arab Emirates, and Singapore, to name a few.
More details about the international tour will be announced in October.
The group’s next single, also titled “WYAT,” will be released on September 2.
The group said the disco-pop song “highlights the urgency of disconnection to reconnection of the times.”
“It’s been a year, the word ‘hiatus’ may sound negative, but we took it from a different perspective. We maximized the opportunity to think more as to what we can improve on, how we can prepare for our comeback,” SB19 Stell said.
“We are thrilled to be releasing a new song for our fans. Bigger, better. I hope that ATIN will appreciate at best the work we’ve done for our upcoming tour.” Ken said.
Josh revealed that this would be their first time holding their own concert overseas. He also expressed his excitement to meet their international fans.
