From a press release:

South Korea’s genre-challenging boy band Oneus is coming all the way to Wilkes-Barre on their 2022 Blood Moon Tour, stopping at the F.M. Kirby Center on Sunday, Feb. 13.

This is not the sextet’s first stateside tour, as they successfully held their first Fly With Us Tour back in November of 2019. Now, over two years later, Oneus is ready to take over big stages again with live music and show-stopping performances featuring an all-new setlist showcasing an expanded discography that will leave K-pop fans breathless.

Doors at the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre) open at 6 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets, which are $54.50, $69.50, $79.50, and $149.50, plus applicable fees, go on sale this Friday, Jan. 14 at 11 a.m. and will be available at the F.M. Kirby Center box office, online at and, and by phone at 570-826-1100.

Debuted under RBW Inc., the agency that houses one of the biggest Korean girl groups of all time, Mamamoo, Oneus has gained worldwide attention from the very beginning.

After their debut in January of 2019, the six members quickly became K-pop heartthrobs with their striking physical appearances and vocal prowess. Their debut mini-album “Light Us” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top K-Pop Albums charts and charted within the Top 10 in Canada, Germany, England, Spain, and Italy. The song “Valkyrie” garnered over 32 million views on YouTube, an impressive feat for a rookie group.

Despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic, Oneus started the year strong with the release of their first single album, “In Its Time,” and its ballad “A Song Written Easily,” showing off their musical adaptability and genre versatility.

They continued this streak by releasing their fourth mini-album, “Lived,” featuring “To Be or Not to Be.” This further demonstrated the band’s powerful charms while putting a twist on an old-time classic “Hamlet” narrative. They closed 2020 with yet another banger, “Bbusyeo,” a song that expresses the exciting and heart-fluttering feelings experienced by boys who have fallen in love.

January of 2021 saw the release of their very first album, “Devil.” The single “No Diggity” peaked at No. 18 on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales chart, marking their place among top artists.

With the release of their fifth mini-album, “Binary Code,” in May, featuring their Michael Jackson-inspired track “Black Mirror,” the group dominated charts throughout the month.

Oneus threw music fans for another loop when they released their sixth mini-album, “Blood Moon,” in November, breaking their own personal records in sales and charting both domestically and internationally. Their success is exponentially growing with no end in sight; they even grabbed their first trophy win on a domestic music show with their latest track, “Luna.”

With all these achievements under their belts, they’re ready to reconnect with fans live on tour.
