SB19 announces new date of ‘PAGTATAG!’ world tour in Japan

by Joanna Deala

THE ASIAN leg of P-pop group SB19’s highly anticipated “PAGTATAG!” concert tour continues as the quintet set a new date for its Japan stop.

1Z entertainment, SB19’s new label, announced on X (formerly Twitter) that Pablo, Stell, Josh, Ken and Justin will hold the musical event on April 29 at Japan Pavilion in Tokorozawa Sakura Town.

“We sincerely apologize for the prolonged wait and any inconvenience caused by the postponement of PAGTATAG! World Tour: Japan. Your patience has been truly appreciated,” it said.

The Japan show was scheduled on December 9, 2023 at the same venue but it was postponed on December 1. This came after the cancellation of shows in Dubai, Bangkok, and Singapore because the well-being of the members had to be prioritized.

It was during that time when speculations about SB19’s rebranding arose, as the group left their former label ShowBT Philippines and dropped the name “SB19” from their bios on social media. Their fans, collectively known as A’TIN, were instead addressing the group as “Mahalima.”

Tickets from the December 9 show remain valid, said 1Z Entertainment.

“We can’t wait to provide you with an unforgettable experience,” the agency wrote.

“Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to celebrating this long-awaited moment together on April 29,” it added.

SB19 made their first public appearance at the 2023 Asia Artist Awards (AAA) after it reached “amicable agreement” with their former label.

Since then, the quintet has been active in the entertainment industry, with Josh and Pablo dropping their new songs “Get Right” and “DETERMINADO,” respectively.

Justin, on the other hand, ventured into acting when he joined the cast of youth-oriented series “Senior High” as a guest.

The exceptional talents of the P-pop kings were recognized at the 9th Wish Music Awards, where they took home a total of six awards including “Wish Group of the Year.”
