Fans’ dedication for SEVENTEEN is no joke.

South Korean boy group SEVENTEEN is indeed growing in popularity. After successfully wrapping up its Diamond Edge in Seoul concerts from July 14 to 16, the thirteen-member boy group is ready to conquer the world with its first world tour 2017 SEVENTEEN 1st World Tour: Diamond Edge.

The boy group is set to visit 13 cities across the globe. After Seoul, SEVENTEEN will visit Saitama, Bangkok and Hong Kong. The tour will also land in North American cities such as Chicago, Dallas, Toronto and New York. Following these cities are Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, Singapore and Taipei.


S.Coups, Jeonghan, Joshua, Jun, Hoshi, Wonwoo, Woozi, Minggyu, The8, DK, Seungkwan, Vernon and Dino are expected to wrap up their first world tour in Manila on October 6. And it seems that Filipino Carats are making sure that the final leg of Diamond Edge will be a success.

Ticket selling for the VIP package tickets of the Manila concert began on July 18 at 8 a.m. However, as early as Monday night, fans of the boy group camped outside the Mall of Asia Arena where VIP package ticket selling will be held. Only 600 VIP package tickets were expected to be sold for the concert.

At 9 p.m., 11 hours before the official ticket selling starts, more than 100 fans have already lined up, and the crowd continued to swell. By 11 p.m., the queue has reached the other side of the arena.

Fans, who will purchase other ticket categories, have also swarmed ticketing outlets even before the start of the ticket selling at 10 a.m. The #DiamondEdgeinManila has peaked at the top spot of the Philippine trends on Twitter.

The Manila leg of 2017 SEVENTEEN 1st World Tour: Diamond Edge will be the second visit of the boy group in the Philippines. In 2016, SEVENTEEN held Shining Diamonds in Manila as part of its Asia tour. Originally slated for a one-night only event, another day was opened to accommodate the high demands from overwhelming number of fans.
