EXO has returned to Korea to end their third world tour.
On May 27 and May 28, EXO held the encore leg of their third concert tour The EXOrDIUM at the Seoul Olympic Stadium (more commonly referred to as Jamshil Stadium). Both EXO and their fans were excited as they would be ending the tour in Koreas largest concert venue.
EXO invited 35,000 fans each night to the special occasion, with the total audience size coming in at 70,000 fans for both performances combined. People flocked from all over the world to enjoy the experience, coming from countries like Japan, China, Thailand, and Taiwan.
The groups third tour began last July at the Seoul Olympic Park Gymnastics Stadium, attracting a total of 84,000 fans and leading EXO to become the first singers to hold six days of the same concert at the venue. They then traveled to 17 cities including LA, Mexico City, Bangkok, and Kuala Lumpur to hold 37 concerts for 610,000 fans. Since their first solo concert in May 2014, EXO has held 111 concerts for a whopping 1.6 million fans.
During the press conference ahead of the May 28 concert, EXO didnt hold back their excitement about performing at the Jamshil Stadium. Kai said, Just being able to hold our concert here is a great honor. We will do our best. Suho also added, Its an honor to be performing on the same stage as groups like H.O.T, god, and Shinhwa. We will show you the greatest performance weve ever given.
Baekhyun kept emphasizing how happy he was while Xiumin said, Were so happy to be greeting our Korean fans for the first time in a while. We actually performed in this venue for an SMTOWN concert in our early days, and back then, I wondered if wed ever be able to perform a solo concert here. And here we are.
The concert was a resounding success, bringing EXO and their fans even closer together. Not only did the group perform hits like Monster, Growl, and Overdose, but they showcased a wide variety of genres with individual songs and previously unreleased tracks. The members also talked about their fifth anniversary, voted on who the cutest member is, and even performed a snippet of Pick Me from Produce 101 Season 2.
SM Entertainment shared a video of the concert on their Twitter account, and the energy shared between EXO and EXO-L can be felt from through the screen!
