As part of their tour, ENHYPEN made their way to Anaheim, CA, returning to the Honda Center for the first stop of their U.S. encore tour. FATE PLUS follows their late-2023 tour, FATE, with a revised setlist and more performances to impress their fans, ENGENE. Using a general admission format for floor ticket holders, despite the show taking place on Wednesday, fans began to line up outside as early as Sunday, hoping to get the best spot possible to see their favorite group.

The show began with a VCR painting the group as vampires, suitable for their recent two comeback concepts with Dark Blood and Orange Blood. The VCR led into the first song of the evening, “Drunk-Dazed.” The group went on to perform “Blockbuster,” “Let Me In (20 CUBE),” “Flicker,” “FEVER,” and recent dual title track song “Still Monster,” only with a brief pause to introduce themselves to their audience and for a dance break between the first two songs.

This led into another VCR, which preluded performances for “Future Perfect (Pass the MIC)” and “Blessed-Cursed.” Those next songs breezed by as the group showed off their synchronized and impressive choreography, and it was time for another transitional VCR. This video led into a longer performance section, featuring “Attention, please!,” “ParadoXXX Invasion,” and “Tamed-Dashed,” before the group disappeared once more. Instead of a VCR, however, this led into unit performances, and a very special performance just for ENGENE.

Jake, Jay, Sunghoon, and Sunoo performed “TFW (That Feeling When),” accompanied by Jay strumming an acoustic guitar, and Heeseung, Jungwon, and Ni-ki performed “Just A Little Bit” as Heeseung played the piano. This introduced the next set of stages, as ENHYPEN performed “10 Months,” a special rendition of “Polaroid Love” that had the members rushing into the audience to closely greet their fans, Pokémon collaboration song “One and Only,” which featured Pikachu mascots joining the group for choreography, “SHOUT OUT,” and “Go Big or Go Home.” The group also made time for Jake to sing his solo song, “I Don’t Think I’m Okay,” and for the group and audience to wish Jay a happy birthday during this portion of the show.

While the last few songs in this segment were bright and upbeat, the next section of the show was much darker and sultrier, as the group performed songs off of their Dark Blood EP such as “Chaconne,” “Bills,” and crowd-favorite, “Bite Me.” The members also prepared special stages for songs from their DARK MOON: THE BLOOD ALTAR webtoon, performing “CRIMINAL LOVE” and “One In A Billion.”

Getting ready to finish the night, the group performed their second recent dual title track song, “Sweet Venom,” along with fan-dedicated song “Orange Flower (You Complete Me),” and “Karma,” before giving their final greetings and closing the show. Not wanting it to end, ENHYPEN even added an encore song to the encore, performing “Future Perfect (Pass the MIC)” once more before officially closing the set. The group shared their dedicated and loving personas with their fans, preparing special stages and powerful performances, and they truly created a night to remember.

Special thank you to ENHYPEN’s team for allowing Officially Kmusic to attend the show!
