TXT is currently in the United States for their 2022 TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR <ACT : LOVE SICK.
While the group is halfway through the tour dates now, MOAs (TXT’s fans) have expressed concerns since the beginning.
Since the start, MOAs have been displeased about the concert venue choices. Despite TXT no longer being rookies, most venues were smaller than hoped.

- They need to strike when the iron’s hot… They aren’t rookies anymore… They need to step out and establish themselves… As physically taxing as it will be, I just hope they aren’t tired mentally.
- BTS was performing similarly hard schedules back then ㅠㅠ.
- To be honest popular groups had been touring like this for a couple of years before the pandemic.
- If you add their Japanese and Korean comebacks, TXT seem to be working all the time.
- HYBE isn’t crazy. They need to perform overseas to get more exposure… BTS did more at their stage… You won’t get big staying inside the country, and you need to go out to get more fans… You should enjoy them while you can.
If MOAs weren’t concerned for TXT’s health already, the group also interacts with the audience at their shows, and many attendees have gone without masks despite COVID-19 cases still being high.
moas who are close to the stage aren't wearing mask dang THINK OF OTHER'S SAFETY ESP TXT! even if u are vaccinated u can still catch covid, if you dont want to wear a mask then dont open your mouth for the entire concert ekdujwsm

Recently, there was controversy in the Stray Kids fandom concerning this topic. Shortly after they began their tour in the U.S., three members tested positive, and many Stays (Stray Kids fans) felt like it was due to a large number of maskless attendees.
Consequently, two concerts immediately were postponed. Considering others travel, this caused frustration for many.
This is Big Hit Music.
We would like to provide you with information on the status of TOMORROW X TOGETER member Beomgyu’s health and his future schedule.
Beomgyu started feeling unwell on July 11 while on tour in the United States and subsequently sought consultation from a local doctor. He received the medical opinion that going on with the concerts as planned would be possible, and Beomgyu accordingly took part in the Atlanta show today. However, he stepped away during some parts of the concert as he was not fully recovered.
Beomgyu is currently getting some rest after the Atlanta show and will focus on recovering his condition and health.
While the artist himself strongly wishes to participate in all future tour schedules, we are prioritizing his health above all and will approach his participation in the rest of the U.S. tour with necessary flexibility and caution.
We will continue to support Beomgyu in his rapid recovery so that he can perform in front of fans again soon.

Even before the tour started, Beomgyu had received death threats along with Huening Kai via Weverse.
So, naturally, MOAs couldn’t help but be extra cautious and concerned when they noticed a man repeatedly approach TXT during their recent concert.
the fact txt got d*ath threats when this tour started and the security not only let's a man get this close to txt, but they don't just yank him out of there. they like ask him to leave. wtf?? if he had a weapon he could have hurt txt easly.pic.twitter.com/E5vP33Gz8P

Videos have been circulating and going viral on social media from TXT’s Dallas, Texas, concert on July 14 at Texas Trust CU Theatre. In it, a man can be seen not just approaching the stage…

He literally went on the stage and attempted to interact with the members. Naturally, MOAs are disturbed that he was able to get that far.
this man literally went on stage and bothered txt. AND throughout the concert, he ran towards them and made them feel uncomfortable. whoever’s dad that is, you should seriously be embarrassed. AND security needs to step it up!! #TXTinDAL #txtindallas #txt #ACTLOVESICKinDALLAS pic.twitter.com/mT20XBrLB5
— syd ❤️ txt houston (@txttaegyuu) July 15, 2022
he just wanted a high five from soobin 🤭 #taehyunschanclasss
Besides this, the same man chased Huening Kai when they went out into the audience. In the video of the moment, security is seen walking around, but the man in question still got uncomfortably close to Huening Kai.
here’s that same man literally running up to hueningkai.. like who the hell is this man.. you should be embarrassed!! like yeonjun didn’t come near this section bc that man was running up to them!! #TXTinDallas #TXT_WORLD_TOUR #txtindal #txtdallas #txt #ACTLOVESICKinDALLAS pic.twitter.com/3XoYJppSNS

if u look closely, the same disgusting, creepy man that jumped on stage went out of his seat and in front of kai and yeonjun. they had to turn around because of him and security did nothing. #ACTLOVESICKinDALLAS #TXTinDallas #TXT_WORLD_TOUR pic.twitter.com/KvLg6WXzLx

MOAs find the lack of initiative and conscientiousness from security problematic and hypocritical considering how fans are treated over other things, such as recording.
no way but if the security see you recording or something they will automatically kick u out of the concert BUT THEY LET THIS MAN TO WALK ON STAGE TOWARDS TXT, THIS IS ACTUALLY ???? pic.twitter.com/JlNCHDccov

Considering the prior threats, the fact that anyone would approach TXT multiple times throughout their concert is especially concerning.
Yesterday in TXT Dallas concert this man went on stage & tried to hi-five Soobin, Soobin politely showed him to security, but guys, is it not so risky? Something worse could happen too…. #txt #dallas pic.twitter.com/PFZUA6gjyj
