On December 9, Far Music Entertainment announced that TAN’s forthcoming Americas tour was pushed by two months due to “bureaucratic issues”.
“Due to delays in issuing visas to the United States, it was impossible to carry out the tour in other countries scheduled for the shows and fan events,” it explained.
Far Music reiterated that “group ticket locations will remain”, and that it would be adding more cities to the tour. Fans who have purchased HallyuuConn Summer Edition will also be receiving special benefits on tour tickets, Far Music said.
For bureaucratic reasons, we at Far Music Entertainment communicate the postponement of the TAN AMERICA TOUR, will change to April (still without a specific date).

The announcement of TAN’s upcoming tour was first made via their official social media channels in November, alongside a teaser poster that included locations of stops planned for the tour. TAN had singled out Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico and the US as countries they’ll be visiting as part of the tour, which will mark TAN’s first-ever concerts since their debut earlier this year.
Other key details such as venues and ticketing prices are expected to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
TAN – comprising members Changsun, Jooan, Jaejun, Sunghyuk, Hyunyeop, Taehoon and Jiseong – are a seven-piece K-pop boy group housed under Think Entertainment, and were formed through the idol survival reality series The Wild Idol, which aired from September to December 2021 and was produced by Korean cable network MBC.
Prior to their appearance on the programme, many of TAN’s members had already made public appearances in the entertainment industry. Some had already made debuts in other groups prior to their time with TAN, while others broke out in the entertainment scene as trainee contestants of other K-pop survival programmes including MixNine and Produce 101.
Their latest music is the single album ‘Dream & Deurim’ released in October. That two-track record was headlined by lead single ‘Beautiful Lie’, and completed by B-side track ‘Our Youth’. Prior to that, they have so far released two mini-albums – ‘1TAN’ and ‘2TAN’ – in March and June this year, the former being their debut record.
