SINGAPORE - The South Korean idol girl group Twice will return to Singapore for a concert in July at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

As part of their third world tour titled Twicelights, the nine-member group will perform here on July 13. Tickets range from $168 to $288 and will go on sale across all Sports Hub Tix ticketing channels on May 26 at noon.

Pre-sales for Singtel customers will take place on May 24 from 10am on Sports Hub Tix ticketing channels. Live Nation member pre-sales will start on May 25 at the same time.

The group - consisting of members Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu - had brought both its previous world tours to Singapore.

They staged their concert at The Star Theatre in 2017 and Indoor Stadium the following year.

Twice will kick off their new tour on Saturday (May 25) in Seoul and is set to perform in Bangkok and Manila before coming to Singapore. They will then embark on the first United States leg of their tour.

Twice, which debuted in 2015 through reality show Sixteen under JYP Entertainment, is one of the biggest K-pop girl groups in recent years. Forbes reported last month that the group has sold six million albums worldwide since their debut.
