Stray Kids came to America! And we were thrilled to have gotten tickets to the May 16 2019 Performance in Newark (Stray Kids USA Tour 2019: Will You Be There?)
The show was immediately sold out and the band surprised fans by offering a second show for May 15 2019. This was their first ever consecutive performance and the band was so excited to have so much love and support from STAY.
Since we are out in Canada, Candace and I took the long treck to New York to see the concert- and it was worth every minute of the drive!
To get ourselves ready- we listened to their albums over and over…and over and over and over and over.
And so our Journey to New York Began.
New York City
We took the opportunity to vacation in New York City stopping by to see all the famous sights, sounds and tastes.
NYC style Pizza
After a day on the town, we returned to our hotel, only to discover that Stray Kids had visited Times Square within hours of our own sighting of it early that afternoon!
How we envy those lucky bystanders in the background who don’t even know what they missed! We had been keeping an eye out for Stray Kids all day- even though we only half believed that we could ever spot them- but as it turns out, we should have been looking harder!
Stray Kids Concert
When we arrived two hours before the concert- our fellow Kpop fans were already there, getting hyped up.
This was our very first kpop concert, so we didn’t quite know what to expect.
It really felt like home- being around other kpop fans and sharing our excitement!
One cannot describe what it was like the moment Stray Kids came onto the stage- it was- just the most amazing thing!
There was this dissonance between being able to actually physically see and be in the presence of people I’ve only ever seen on youtube. My brain told me it wasn’t possible- that they were on the other side of the world- and yet here they stood- right in front of me! Living, breathing, dancing , singing STRAY KIDS!
The screams were unbelievable- and while I never thought I would become a crazy fangirl and start tearing up my vocal chords- but I did, I just couldn’t help it.

The concert was the most phenomenal experience EVER, was worth every penny- and we are already planning our next concert…
To those doubters out there- ITS WORTH IT JUST GO at least once.
