When curious Angelinos asked what the wait is for, a line of cloak-wearing, staff-carrying InSomnias proudly shared, “Dreamcatcher, a K-Pop group.” Soon, the fans—all dressed to kill and ready to rock—packed The Wiltern in Los Angeles on the final night of the “2022 Dreamcatcher World Tour [Apocalypse: Save us]” shows scheduled in the United States.
JiU, SuA, Siyeon, Handong, Yoohyeon, Dami, and Gahyeon kicked off the show with “MAISON,” a track with an awing message which has not only marked the epitome of the group’s irreplaceable sound in the K-Pop world but also won the members an all-time career-high since their debut. The connection between the group and the fans seemed actually unbreakable, while together they sang, “Please, someone fight for us.”
In fact, at one point, Dami revealed that she was “actually worried because [Dreamcatcher] hadn’t been on tour for a while” and she feared that “[their] fans would have forgotten about [them].” Shattering her concerns, InSomnias remained 100% passionate about each and every word sung and spoken by the group.
A bewitching two-hour-long show continued with a set list mixing Dreamcatcher’s most iconic songs, including the members’ solos. In a live performance that came nothing short of flawless, the members proved a few things: The most important one being, there is no other group quite like Dreamcatcher.
Following the US shows, Dreamcatcher successfully completed the tour in Mexico City. The members thanked InSomnias, via Korean press, for “supporting Dreamcatcher’s music as is.”
Finally, after two years, we’ve successfully toured the US and Mexico. We’re thrilled to have been able to perform as a whole group. And we’re honored to have seen InSomnias in person, not online or during video calls. We’ve been inspired by the energy shared with us throughout the shows and we can’t thank InSomnias enough for supporting our music as is.
Sure, Dreamcatcher’s music “as is” could come across as unorthodox, especially hailing from K-Pop land of all places. A K-Pop act raising awareness about the environment with an electronic-rock repertoire is, truth be told, a whole new kind of path-paving. But it seems Dreamcatcher is, one InSomnia commented, “rewriting an entire musical genre.” And InSomnias are right behind the girl group’s bold endeavors.
Having witnessed the pure magic in real time, Los Angeles can’t wait for the return of the queens!
