1. This is NCT 127’s first New York City show.

We’re honored to welcome Doyoung, Mark, Johnny, Haechan, Yuta, Taeyong, Taeil, and Jaehyun to Central Park on Sept. 28 for their first-ever NYC show. If you are the kind of NCTzen who wants to watch from as close to the stage as possible, you may want to arrive early. Doors for the festival open at 2 p.m. ET. Either way, be prepared to wait in line for a security screening. 

2. The group will play as part of the full Global Citizen Festival lineup.

While we wish the boys could perform every song from We Are Superhuman, NCT 127 is part of the larger lineup of incredible artists playing from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET. We won’t be announcing set times, so be sure to not miss a minute of the festival whether you are tuning in or attending in the park.   

3. The show is free, but everyone needs a ticket to get into the event. 

Did you take action for the chance to win tickets to the 2019 festival? If not, NYC-area residents still have a few opportunities to earn a pair of passes to see NCT 127 by showing up at the Global Citizen booth in Central Park on Sept. 22, taking action at Hudson Yards, and keep an eye on our Instagram for your final chances to earn tickets throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. No one will be permitted into the park without a ticket. 

4. Central Park prohibits certain items from entering the grounds. 

Unfortunately, if you’re planning to bring your NCT 127 Fanlight, you’re out of luck. The NYC Parks department strictly prohibits them for safety reasons. You can find a full list of what’s allowed inside along with other answers to frequently asked questions here.

5. You can watch the whole performance in real time anywhere in the world. 

Can’t attend the festival? Follow along wherever you are to see NCT 127 with Queen + Adam Lambert, Pharrell, Alicia Keys, OneRepublic, H.E.R., Carole King, and more live from the Great Lawn. Here’s how to watch, listen, stream, and follow the full event

6. Anyone can host an NCT 127-themed watched party on Sept. 28.
