“Cheer Up,” Twice fans. JYP Entertainment announced on social media yesterday their K-pop girl group will return to Los Angeles “One More Time” for a one-night-only encore concert to their successful “III” U.S. tour. 

For the first time, Twice and their fans will “Dance the Night Away” in a stadium — Banc Of California Stadium in Los Angeles — with a capacity of 22,000 instead of their usual The Forum venue, which has a capacity of 17,505. 

Fans said, “I Want You Back,” and the group listened. Twice’s surprise return to L.A. shows they know how to make their fans “Feel Special” and comes just as the group wrapped up the U.S. leg of their “III” tour last month, having sold out all seven shows in L.A, Oakland, Fort Worth and New York. 

The announcement is also a “Breakthrough” with much “Fanfare” in that Twice will be the first-ever K-pop girl group to perform in a North American stadium and the second K-pop group overall, following BTS.

JYP Entertainment has recently given fans plenty to “Likey,” as Twice released their latest album, “Formula of Love: O+T=<3,” in November. The third official full album from the group debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart and stayed for eight weeks. The album also featured their first-ever official English language original song “The Feels,” which became their first-ever track to land on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, charting at No. 83 for the week of October 16.

Twice’s record-breaking reception in the U.S. may have been the “Signal” to JYP Entertainment to continue to “Knock Knock” down doors with an ambitious U.S. expansion plan.

Tickets for their May 14 Banc Of California Stadium performance will go on sale April 6 at 3 p.m. PDT through Ticketmaster and Live Nation.
