Seventeen performed 24 songs during the concert from tightly choreographed performances of “Hot,” “March” and “Hit” to unit tracks including “Moonwalker,” “Imperfect love” and “Back it up.”

“Left & Right,” “Crush,” “Darl+ing” and others completed the set, boasting the band’s versatility. For the finale, Seventeen staged their iconic hour-long encore with “Snap Shoot” and “Very Nice.”

“We woke up with every part of our body aching after the first day. So today, we danced even harder. You are the source of all our energy,” said Woozi, the group’s producer and vocal unit leader.

The team’s performance unit leader Hoshi emphasized throughout the 2-day show, “We run at full throttle for this set. We wanted to show everyone what a ‘performance’ is.”

After the encore, Seventeen announced the release of their repackaged album “Sector 17,” a deluxe edition of their record-setting fourth album “Face the Sun,” on July 18.

Seventeen achieved a new milestone in May when “Face the Sun” racked up over two million copies in sales in the first week of release, the second artist to reach the feat in K-pop history after BTS.
