According to their agency JYP Entertainment on the 25th, Stray Kids will hold their second world tour 'Stray Kids 2nd World Tour “Maniac” (Stray Kids 2nd World Tour “MANIAC”)'.
In particular, this Osaka concert has a special meaning in that it is Stray Kids' first Japanese dome performance. According to the music industry, dome performances in Japan usually accommodate between 30,000 and 50,000 spectators, reach the breaking point in one day if all seats are sold out, and sell out for two consecutive days, recording a significant increase in sales.
The agency hinted, “The tickets for the encore performance in Japan were sold out for all four performances in Saitama and Osaka at the same time as general reservations were opened.”
On the 22nd, Stray Kids delighted fans by releasing the Japanese version of the music video for the title song 'CASE 143' of the album 'MAXIDENT', which achieved a record of No. 1 on the 'Billboard 200' for two consecutive years. The 'CASE 143 -Japanese ver.-' music video is a collaboration work with popular local illustrator '可哀想に！' (Kawaii Souni!), adding to the fun of seeing the characters of the 8 members who feel the charm of 8 people. Immediately after its release, related words were ranked in real-time trending on Twitter in Japan, and fans responded enthusiastically, saying, "I was moved by how cute it is" and "It has a high level of reproducibility."
Meanwhile, Stray Kids will release their first regular album 'THE SOUND' in Japan on February 22nd. Prior to this, on January 27th, they appeared on Japan's representative music program TV Asahi's 'Music Station (Music Station)' and performed the title song 'THE SOUND' for the first time in Japan.
