Signs with MOA written on them were seen throughout the crowd as the day progressed toward their start time. MOA is the official name for TXT’s fans stands for Moments of Alwaysness. As evening fell on the festival more people moved toward the North end of the festival, more signs referenced the five members Taehyun, Yeonjun, Beomgyu, Hueningkai, and Soobin, and more TXT light sticks lit up the night sky creating a sea of globes throughout the crowd.

As the concert progressed, it became increasingly evident how much TXT had matured since their last appearance. Their on-stage conversations flowed more freely compared to the previous year, exuding a sense of ease. They appeared more at home on the stage, allowing more of their individual personalities to shine through.

After the second song, the group took a break from dancing to get fitted with wireless headset mics and introduce themselves individually. The group spoke about how important Chicago and the festival had been in their careers. They obviously have a lot of love for the city.

The rain came back toward the end of the TxT set but the fans stayed until the last note of the night after the long year long wait to see their favorite band again.
