NCT Dream will kick off its third world tour with three concerts from May 2 to 4 at the Gocheok Sky Dome in western Seoul, the band’s agency SM Entertainment said Wednesday.

The upcoming performances will be NCT Dream’s first solo concerts in 11 months after the band wrapped up the encore concerts for its second world tour in June last year at the same venue.

The tour, titled “The Dream Show 3: Dream()scape,” will then move to Asia, Europe and the Americas. The band will perform at the Rajamangala National Stadium in Bangkok, the Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium in Jakarta and at stadiums in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, according to SM Entertainment.

A pop-up store will take place from Thursday through April 3 at The Hyundai department store in western Seoul, featuring exhibits and merchandise for fans.

Tickets for the upcoming concerts in Seoul will be sold at Melon Ticket. Pre-sale tickets will open at 8 p.m. on April 2 for fan club members and regular tickets will be open at 8 p.m. on April 4.

“The concerts for the upcoming tour will have a solid narrative from beginning to end, which I believe is the essence of a good performance,” member Mark said in a showcase on Monday for the band’s new EP, “Dream()scape,” ahead of its release on the same day.

“We tried to prepare something that we haven't shown before, so we took part in every single detail of the production. Our hearts are all in it and we hope that the fans’ hearts are there too.”

NCT Dream is a seven-member subgroup of boy band NCT that debuted in 2016 with its digital single “Chewing Gum.” The group dropped its third full-length album, “ISTJ,” in July 2023, which sold more than 3.65 million copies in the first week of its release.
