In addition to well-known songs like “Virtual Insanity” and “Move Mood Mode” from previous albums, Taeyong treated the audience to unreleased tracks, including “H.E.R.” and “Lonely,” all composed and written by the artist himself.

Following a seamless performance of nine songs, Taeyong briefly addressed the fans, explaining, “This performance is organised like a scenario with a story, so I minimised the chat time to let you guys focus solely on the stage and music.”

Several close friends and fellow artists, including Jisung, Yuta of NCT, Seventeen Woozi, Red Velvet Seulgi, and choreographer Lee Jung, attended the concert to show their support. Taeyong expressed gratitude to each one individually.

The concert spanned diverse genres, incorporating impressive visual effects such as transforming the stage into a starry night sky during the “Moon Tour” and featuring a video of Taeyong and his dog Ruby for the song “Ruby.” Notably, Taeyong executed aerial stunts while performing “404 File Not Found.”

Concluding the concert with 18 songs, including tracks from his new album “Tap” released on Monday, Taeyong surprised fans with an encore, appearing among second-floor seats.

During this intimate session, he performed “Long Flight” and “Back to the Past,” connecting with fans by holding hands and making eye contact.

Expressing gratitude through tears, Taeyong thanked his fans, promising, “As long as you, my fans, trust me, I will return with even better stages and songs.” Reflecting on the significance of the performance, he shared, “It took me 10 years to hold this kind of performance where I can pour everything into it, and I believe I’ll be able to do it again one day. I will be with you all the time.”
