Lightsticks Thrown Out At GOT7 Jackson Wang’s Concert
Lightsticks are a unique and fun part of attending K-Pop concerts. Each group has a unique one, famous for its signature color oceans.
GOT7‘s lightstick is known as the “AHGABONG,” named after their fandom Ahgase (also known as iGOT7). Their green oceans are like no other!
While the GOT7 members are currently focusing on solo projects, especially as the Korean members fulfill their mandatory military enlistment, Ahgases are showing out and supporting. So, many are still rocking green and bringing their AHGABONGs to solo concerts.
Mark Tuan‘s audience has been green, just like any GOT7 concert. He also has encouraged concert-goers to bring any of their lightsticks even if they were another group’s.
Yet, at Jackson Wang‘s recent concert, many concert-goers reported that their AHGABONGs were being taken or thrown away. He is currently on his 2023 MAGIC MAN WORLD TOUR.
The security for the most part was very chill aside from confiscating lightsticks but the rules were clear on that.
They really did their job as best as they could and were really respectful.

Those who attended Jackson’s concert at the Barclays Center in New York were not permitted to bring their lightsticks. So, many got thrown away. Some hid theirs outside to find later after the concert.
Lets go find my lightstick!! #fyp #kpop #kpopfyp #MAGICMAN2 #MAGICMANWorldTour #JacksonWangWorldTour #jacksonwang #잭슨 #王嘉爾 #TEAMWANGrecords #teamwang #ahgase #igot7 #got7
Yet, some Ahgases still were able to take their lightsticks to the Jackson Wang concert they attended…

For previous stops, such as Chicago at Wintrust Arena, concert-goers were informed that lightsticks were permitted. Still, some reported that their lightsticks were confiscated anyway.
In Chicago, for Jackson Wang lightsticks of any groups were allowed. I see many ppl saying that the staff tuk it away. But that bc they didn't show the information of the event page that says 🙄 the info. I saw lightsticks from: ikon, shinee,nct,the rose,etc. #MAGICMANWorldTour pic.twitter.com/KGxZvQmU78

But Jackson didn’t ban it.. people had theirs there. Some of the arenas may not allow it, which is why he provided finger lights. Girls was knocking each other upside the head with them lightsticks😭

According to Jackys (Jackson Wang’s fandom), it was Jackson’s idea not to permit lightsticks at his solo concerts. Due to Jackson’s vision for MAGIC MAN and his theatrical performances, he prefers white lights in the audience rather than a sea of color, such as green. His current concept’s color scheme is black, red, and white. While fans are discouraged from bringing their own lightsticks, attendees have been given white finger lights.
🚨 Friendly reminder: Jackson Wang likes white light in his SOLO performances, lightsticks are not allowed in his concerts; he gives attendees white finger lights. pic.twitter.com/Toi6CYB5EE

he told before that he wanted to see white lights so most of the birds didnt take their ahgabongs with them+most of the concert halls didnt allow the lightsticks. jackson instead gave ring-lights so that everyone could put it on their finger and make a white scene at the concert

Lightstick or no lightstick, the 2023 MAGIC MAN TOUR is a memorable experience.
