K-pop boyband Stray Kids seem primed to tour this year, according to a recent interview the group did with Tommy Hilfiger at the Met Gala 2024.

Tommy Hilfiger and Stray Kids were speaking to Vogue on the red carpet of the Met Gala 2024, when the iconic American fashion designer let it slip that the K-pop boyband “[are] embarking on a 40-city tour”, which had previously been unannounced.

While the moment itself has since been removed from the official Vogue interview with Stray Kids and Hilfiger on YouTube, fans of the K-pop boyband have reposted the unedited version of the clip on X (formerly Twitter) with the fashion designer’s original remarks.


Earlier tonight, Stray Kids made history as the first-ever group to attend the Met Gala together. The boyband were invited to the event on behalf of Hilfiger, having previously starred in the fashion label’s spring 2024 campaign.

The night also saw an appearance by BLACKPINK singer Jennie, who had made her debut at the event in 2023. Take a look at what the K-pop stars wore to the Met Gala 2024 below:

Stray Kids’ last tour was their 2022 to 2023 ‘Manic’ world tour, which features shows across Asia, the US and Australia. Since then, the boyband have released their third studio album ‘5-STAR’ and eighth mini-album ‘ROCK-STAR’.

The K-pop boyband will release their new single ‘Lose My Breath’, featuring Charlie Puth, this Friday (May 10). The song has been described as a “warm-up” for an upcoming Korean album by K-pop act, slated for release sometime this summer.
