Wango Tango was held at the Dignity Health Sports Park on June 1. The day-long concert has been an annual event since 1998, and usually includes the biggest names in pop music. 2019 is no exception, given aforementioned guests like Halsey, Taylor Swift, and the Jonas Brothers. Each of these artists will be performing their latest singles, while newcomers like CNCO and Tomorrow X Tomorrow will be exposed to a larger audience.
Tomorrow X Tomorrow are the first K-pop group to perform at Wango Tango. After their performance the individual group members took to Twitter to thank fans for their support. “Thank you so much to our fans for supporting us today! How was the stage? We heard our fans’ cheers and we had a lot of fun and it was so exciting! Lets be together tomorrow too,” Beomgyu wrote. “It was a great honor to be able to stand in this such a big stage like this. This is all thanks to our fans. Thank you. I love you,” Taehyun added.
Jonas Brothers will also be continuing their comeback on the heels of their recent album Happiness Begins. Nick Jonas talked to Billboard about their reunion, and how it came about. “To call it creative differences is almost too simple,” he explained. “I think a lot of people lost the appetite for what we were putting into the world. We were putting up shows that weren’t selling. We were making music that I don’t think we were all super proud of, and it wasn’t connecting. On top of all that, the root of all these real issues was our relationship was becoming strained.”
Halsey also caught many fans off guard when she brought our her rumored boyfriend Yungblud to perform alongside her. Halsey will perform the tracks “Bad At Love,” “Eastside,” and “Now or Never” before bringing the singer-songwriter out onstage. “I brought a friend with me tonight,” she said. “How many people are here tonight with someone you love?”
She also performed the new track “Nightmare.” She talked to iHeartRadio about the track and how it came about. “It just kinda came out of me. It was actually one of the first songs I wrote for the album. I was really just feeling that anger,” Halsey explained. “And the timeliness of it is really palpable … A lot of people have been like, ‘Wow. Like, how did you know women were gonna need this song so much right now?’ And I’m kinda like, ‘If you think this is our first time we’ve needed to be angry, then you haven’t been paying attention.’”
