Few artists had a better July than TOMORROW X TOGETHER. The 4th Gen It boys began the month with a global livestream of the Seoul dates of their first world tour, ACT: LOVE SICK, before they headed out to the U.S. for their sold-out run there. Then, of course, we got loads of really great promo and interviews, and their brand new single ‘Valley of Lies’ with iann dior. And we’re not done yet! The grand finale? TXT closed out July with an iconic performance at Lollapalooza! When we say MOA have been fed this month, we mean it.
Taking over the stage as the first K-Pop group to ever perform at Lollapalooza, TXT killed their set on Saturday July 30th. They gave arguably one of the best performances of their career (so far) and Taehyun even described it as one of the best days of his life!
We might have created our own dream setlist when TXT’s Lollapalooza set was announced, but honestly, they surpassed all our expectations and truly made all of our dreams come true. In eight songs, TXT managed to perfectly encapsulate who they are, showcasing so many of their talents. They gave us everything from ballads to full choreo, from rock to hip-hop! We really think they created the perfect setlist, and here’s why!
‘Good Boy Gone Bad’ And ‘Frost’
With the record-breaking success of their latest release minisode 2: Thursday’s Child, how could TXT not open with the already-iconic title track ‘Good Boy Gone Bad?’ Second was ‘Frost’ one of TXT’s most popular b-sides, and one of their best songs, period. These are two of TXT’s most energetic songs, and the performance of ‘Frost’ is elite tier. TXT couldn’t have started their set with more of a bang!
Anti-Romantic’ And ‘Valley of Lies’
Next came ‘Anti-Romantic,’ TXT’s TikTok anthem. The slower track gave TXT a chance to absorb the moment (and catch their breath from the ‘Frost’ choreo!). We don’t know about you, but Soobin’s reaction to the crowd singing along got to us during this song.
Then TXT gave the Lollapalooza audience an extra treat, bringing out iann dior for a performance of their new collab ‘Valley of Lies!’ The guys even recreated the TikTok dance created by Yeonjun, which we still can’t figure out TBH.
‘Magic’ And ‘Thursday’s Child Has To Far Go’
TXT followed up ‘Valley of Lies’ with their first English-language song, ‘Magic.’ This track is always a crowd pleaser, and is one of TXT’s brightest and most fun performances! Paired up with ‘Magic’ was ‘Thursday’s Child Has Far To Go.’ Don’t mind us if we maybe shed a couple tears over seeing Beomgyu singing a song that he wrote and produced in front of that huge Lolla crowd.
‘LO$ER=LOVER’ And ‘0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You)’
Did TXT save the best for last? Maybe so. They finished their set with the two Chaos era title tracks, ‘LO$ER=LOVER’ and ‘0X1=LOVESONG.’ Our 4th Gen frontrunners definitely ended their performance on a high, and we loved seeing all the MOA in the crowd singing along and doing the “L” sign move from the ‘LO$ER=LOVER’ choreo. TXT closed their set by saying “We’ll never forget this moment” and we know MOA won’t either.
We’ve said it time and time again, but one of TXT’s strong suits is their ability to mix hip-hop and rock influences, and their Lolla setlist choices showcased this. With a festival audience that probably has a lot of people who might not know TXT already, (though maybe not, if Huening Kai’s conversation with the crowd is anything to go by) these are the perfect songs to draw in loads of new MOA!
