In addition to their MTV EMA achievements, TXT had earlier secured the “Push Performance of the Year” award at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards in the United States. The group’s soaring success and recognition serve as a testament to its global appeal. The group’s ongoing world tour, “TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR ACT: SWEET MIRAGE,” received an overwhelming response, with all available seats for their final performance in Seoul completely sold out.
