TWICE extended their tour with a special encore return, making them the first K-pop female band to perform at a North American stadium, with the show taking place at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.
The band's eleventh Extended Playlist, "BETWEEN 1&2" got the #3 position on the Billboard 200 Album Chart earlier in January this year. Previously, this month, the band dropped "Moonlight Sunrise", their pre-release English single.
