Speculation – Twice
Fans are sure that Twice have hinted that they will finally be performing in London after their most recent music video, Set Me Free.
The group are known to feature Easter eggs and references to their past songs in their music videos, and one scene in the Set Me Free music video may hint at future tour dates.
The group – consisting of Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu – will head out on tour in April, though so-far the so-called world tour only has dates in Asia, North America and Oceania.
But one scene in the Set Me Free music video includes a signpost with other locations on – including London.
Could that mean that the group is finally set to head to Europe?
