Enhypen will return to the US for encore tour Fate Plus, agency Belift Lab announced on Wednesday.

The seven members will visit five cities in the country, starting in Anaheim, California on April 24. They will head over to Oakland; Tacoma, Washington; and Rosemont, Illinois before wrapping up the stateside leg at Belmont Park in San Diego on May 3.

They are returning to the US about seven months after they went live in six cities for the “Fate” tour. The final destination of the tour was held in the Philippines last week after visiting 13 cities.

The band is set to go live in Seoul Feb. 24-25 as an encore concert for Enhypen fans at home. After the initial tickets sold out quickly, Feb. 23 was added, and tickets will be available for purchase on Thursday.

The mini album was the Le Sserafim’s first million-selling album and its first entry on Billboard 200, debuting at No. 14. The group made the main albums chart in the shortest time since debut for a K-pop girl group at the time.

On Feb. 19, Le Sserafim will release its third EP “Easy.” The trailer video for the upcoming album was uploaded on Jan. 26 and has racked up over 4.5 million views on YouTube so far.

Lisa of Blackpink uploaded a picture of herself with the phrase “Coming Soon” written over it on her SNS account Wednesday.

She has been spending most of her time overseas since the group’s encore concert in Seoul in September, which brought its record-scale international tour that drew about 1.8 million audience in total to an end.

Her most recent solo appearance was at a charity concert in Paris on Feb. 26.

After it became official that she, as well as Jennie and Jisoo, will pursue an individual career without YG Entertainment’s management, there have been many speculations including whether she will appear in drama series “Walking Dead.”
