OMEGA X are currently on their anticipated 2022 World Tour [CONNECT :Don’t give up]. The group was originally scheduled to perform 12 concerts in the U.S. for October.
Recently, OMEGA X performed at Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, Georgia. Despite falling on a Thursday night, FOR X (OMEGA X fans) excitedly showed up to see the “second chance” group perform live. The 11-member SPIRE Entertainment group, which debuted last year, consists of those who were all previously members of other K-Pop boy groups. They are Jaehan, Hwichan, Sebin, Hangyeom, Taedong, Xen, Jehyun, Kevin, Junghoon, Hyuk, and Yechan.
A diverse crowd, including men and women of all ages, entered the venue ahead of time, dressed up for the event. Many wore either merchandise (official and fanmade) or the official fandom color, green. Waiting for OMEGA X to take to the stage, attendees posed for impromptu photoshoots, handed out freebies, including glowsticks and cutout green hearts, signed a flag to gift to them, and even got some alcoholic beverages.

Fans immediately got hyped when OMEGA X’s discography started playing. They knew it was only a short while until the group came out.
Once the venue went dark and lights started flashing, the lightsticks lit up green, and barks (yes, barks) filled the room. And as soon as the recognizable music of the hit song “VAMOS” began, the barks morphed into screams. As expected, each member walked onto the stage one by one, and even before the lights shone onto them, they began performing.
The group kept the energy at its height by performing “OMEGA X” then. So, if you didn’t know who they were already, you knew then! Afterward, they also properly introduced themselves as both a group and individually. They were met with lots of excited barking and cheering.
After opening introductions, OMEGA X performed two more back-to-back hype songs, “WHAT’S GOIN’ ON” and “BAILA CON OX,” that had fans screaming the entire time. The light show, the members’ high-energy and skilled dance moves, and the crowd made one almost forget it was a Thursday night. Instead, it felt more like a night out clubbing, celebrating payday!
Yet, everything went dark afterward as the members left the stage. Even more surprisingly, their voices could still be heard. They conversed with each other backstage for a few minutes before coming back to reveal new outfits. Clearly, the show was just getting started as they immediately went into a fan-favorite song, “LOVE ME LIKE,” followed by “TAKE’EM ALL.”
They took a break to cool down after bringing the heat and to interact with FOR X. They quizzed fans, and the first one to answer (correctly) was invited onstage, greeted by the members’ singing “Congratulations.”
OMEGA X welcomed the fan and had her introduce herself as Zaryah (@hwichansgif on Twitter). The members all proved to be true gentlemen as they provided her a seat and a jacket to cover herself as she was wearing a skirt.
If it couldn’t get any sweeter, they told her they loved her and serenaded her with “LOVE.” They concluded the wholesome moment by taking a group selfie and hugging!
This helped transition the atmosphere into a more sentimental discography of theirs, such as “DRY FLOWER.” This song is especially timely as it compares persevering through tough times to a dying flower only to one day bloom again. If the lyrics weren’t moving already, the members’ harmonies joined with FOR X’s was so touching.
The group performed one more song, “ICETAG,” before heading backstage. Again, although the venue went black and the members couldn’t be seen, they never really left as their voices filled the dark venue.
They could be heard asking FOR X if they “were ready” and instructing them to “make some noise,” which warranted lots of screams. Finally, the members lead them to chant “OMEGA X,” continuing to tease their return. After a couple of minutes of wait, they showed up in all-denim fits to perform the lighthearted track “PLAY DUMB.”
The group then performed the romantic but upbeat song “ALL ABOUT U,” which had all swooning as they pointed to fans in the audience. The members even did adorable heart poses together. Consider us bias-wrecked by literally all of the above!
OMEGA X performed “LIAR” before stopping to address fans. Most members spoke via translator, who expressed for them that they were having so much fun that they couldn’t believe it was real. FOR X shared the same sentiments.
The concert seemed to be coming to an end, unfortunately, but they performed “VENUS” before leaving. It was not truly the end, though. Once again, the venue turned black, and their voices could be heard, encouraging FOR X that an encore was in sight.
Sure enough, after a brief wait, they appeared in their tour T-Shirts to perform “YOUNGER” before their final song, “FOR BABY,” which is an especially meaningful song as it was written by Jaehan, Yechan, Hangyeom, and fans (they suggested lyrics via live broadcast last year). During the finale, FOR X lifted green hearts for them as part of a heart project hosted by @JaehanPeach on Twitter, expressing their love. The members walked around the stage and even reached out to fans, receiving gifts, including hearts and the signed OMEGA X banner that was prepared by FOR X ahead of the concert. Hyuk even wore the banner as a cape!
The room was filled with love as one could feel the sincerity between FOR X and OMEGA X. While most artists would use the song as a final goodbye, the members stayed longer to take a group photo, wave goodbye to each section, pose for photos, and shout, “I love you!” It felt like a night that would never end and that no one wanted to.
Despite the concert concluding, it was one that everyone present that night would remember forever.
Correction: In a previous version of the article, “LOVE” was misidentified as “BINARY STAR,” and the wrong FOR X was credited for the heart and banner projects.
