The TVXQ! Live World Tour 'Catch Me' had previously made stops in Seoul and Hong Kong before making their way to the Chinese capital. March 29th the singers were met by a huge crowd of fans waiting to catch a glimpse of the idols at the airport.
The concert itself was a thrilling example of how, even after so many years and challenges, TVXQ remains a popular force in the Asian music scene. For the duration of the show, concertgoers held up their red glowsticks, sang along to all the songs, and even incorporated some Korean-language fan chants.
The guys performed a total of 26 songs including old singles "Why" and "Mirotic" as well as some recent releases like "Catch Me" and "Humanoids." Changmin even took on a Chinese ballad and U-Know showed off his dance moves for the audience.
Billboard previously labeled TVXQ 'K-Pop Royalty' and judging by the ongoing fan following and success of the Beijing concert, it is hard to deny they are a powerful act in the music world.
The Catch Me tour continues as TVXQ move on to Japan where they will perform in front of thousands more fans in five domes across the country.
