Earlier today the six members St.Van, Baron, ACE, Ayno, Lou and Ziu, made the announcement via social media, declaring, “We want to meet our loving VAMPZ in our concert and fan meeting!” Some of the other countries VAV have completed tours in include the U.S.A., Brazil, Europe, Japan and Thailand.

The band, who debuted in 2015, will be performing several of their biggest hits including their latest breakout single “Thrilla Killa” from the album of the same name. The group made a global splash with the retro-pop track, reinventing their softer, more romantic image to a darker, sexier aura well-received by old and new fans alike.
The news of the tour confirms several fan rumors that have been floating all over social media in the past few months and will hopefully help cement India’s position as a possible touring destination for K-pop acts a little further. With 2019 turning out to be the biggest year for K-pop in India so far, it’s likely more artists will aim to add the country to their tour dates. Other K-pop acts who have toured India so far include AleXa (as an opening act for IN2IT), IMFACT, Mont, Lucente, JJCC, ZE:A and Dabit.
Tickets start at ₹800 and are available here.
