After a flurry of speculations about K-pop boy band Wanna One possibly holding a fanmeeting in Singapore, it’s finally official: OT11 is indeed coming to town!
It’s been barely a month since they’ve made their debut, but these monster rookies have already been sweeping up all the music show trophies (#Energetic9thWin and counting!), all while rapidly amassing a staggering following of Wannables all over the globe. And they’re going full steam ahead with overseas activities after wrapping up promotions in Korea, kicking things off with the recent KCON LA 2017 before visiting Thailand on 16 September, Hong Kong on 3 October and Taiwan on 7 October as part of their Wanna Be Loved fanmeeting tour.
Since then, fans have been fervently tweeting to Wanna One’s official Twitter account, requesting for Wanna One to make a stop in Singapore. Cue the drumrolls…

Mark your calendars, y’all!
With only a month left to D-DAY, fans are starting to get anxious about the ticketing details. Psst, the organisers will be dropping the bomb very soon so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on IME and Three Angles Productions’ socials!
From what we know, tickets will be sold online. And judging from their sold-out debut showcase (all 20,000 tics were snapped up within minutes!), we predict tickets to fly off the virtual shelves for this one so get your fingers ready!
It’s a safe bet that Wanna One will be performing the latest tracks off their debut album 1×1=1 (To Be One), such as ‘Energetic’, ‘Burn It Up’ and ‘Wanna Be (My Baby)’. Diehards can also expect songs from their Produce 101 discography, including the 11-member versions of ‘Never’ and ‘Always’, as well as ‘Pick Me (Nayana)’ and ‘Hands On Me’.
Instead of watching them from a distance in a full-scale concert, fans will be able to get upclose and personal with their favourites in an intimate setting while seeing ’em up to their usual shenanigans. Thigh grabs, butt dances and jeojangs galore!
