The septet showed its artistic concept in a thunderous performance on August 6
XG performed on Sunday (August 6) on the main stage of the Head In The Clouds in Los Angeles, the biggest festival among those organized by 88rising. The event was at the Rose Bowl and the girl group filled the stadium with its electrifying energy and a thunderous performance.
The Head In The Clouds festival started in 2018 and has held performances in global major cities like New York, Jakarta, Manila, and Guangzhou. In the most recent edition, XG shared the stage with other superstars such as YOASOBI, JACKSON WANG, ZEDD, RINA SAWAYAMA, and NIKI.
The members went to the festival in character, with cowboy hats and unique costumes inspired by the city. The septet surprised the audience by entering the stage by coming from behind the LED panels. Everybody could sing in unison the hits ‘LEFT RIGHT’ and ‘SHOOTING STAR’. To close this historical moment with a blast, the members performed their most recent single ‘TGIF’, released on August 4, and ‘GRL GVNG’. Both songs will be part of the first mini-album ‘NEW DNA’.
And still on August 8, the Japanese girl group released a dance collab with Lilas Ikuta, a member of YOASOBI. Recorded during the Head in the Clouds in LA and posted on TikTok, Jurin, Chisa, Cocona, and Lilas danced to the electrifying choreography of ‘TGIF’.
The group’s schedule is still busy: the septet will also perform at the KCON LA at the end of the month and return to Japan for the “TGC 2023 A/W” for a single performance on September 2 at Saitama Super Star Arena. In the same month, the group will perform at the “88 DEGREES & RISING IN JAKARTA”, on the 9, and at the “F1 Singapore Fest” on the 15. And on November 11, the group will share the stage with other stars at “Hyperound” in Abu Dhabi.
The septet continues its journey traveling worldwide with performances in big national and international festivals, delivering great surprises of the ‘NEW DNA’ era, reaffirming the innovation and differentiation that XG represents in pop music. Fans can expect the release of the first mini-album ‘NEW DNA’ on CD BOX/DIGITAL formats on September 27.
