It has been a tried and examined tactic of musicians for many years – don a garment representing a beloved sporting group within the space the place you’re performing.
However for in style Ok-Pop lady group STAYC, there was a basic flaw of their plan to immediately ingratiate themselves with the native viewers in Texas.
Whereas the intention had presumably been for band members to put on official apparel of the Texas Rangers baseball group, they as a substitute strode on to stage for his or her present in Dallas clothed in Nineties Glasgow Rangers shirts.
In photos circulating on-line, two of the ladies will be seen sporting Rangers 1996-97 house shirts on the live performance on Thursday.
In that season, Rangers clinched the Scottish Coca-Cola Cup with a nail-biting 4-3 victory at Celtic Park over Hearts, that includes well-known gamers reminiscent of Paul Gascoigne and Ally McCoist.
STAYC, comprised of Sumin, Sieun, Isa, Seeun, Yoon, and J, have been using a wave of success following the fast rise of their newest album, Teenfresh, within the American charts.
Their harmless mix-up in Texas throughout their US tour inadvertently sparked a combination of amusement and shock amongst their American and Scottish followers, profitable the hearts of some supporters of the Glasgow membership.
One Glasgow Rangers fan tweeted: “Rangers are the kings of Ok-Pop.”
One other wrote: “OK positive I’ll purchase all their albums”.
A 3rd added: “As a Scottish one who helps [Rangers] this was not in my 2023 bingo card”.
STAYC, who marked their musical debut in 2020 with the well-received album Star to a Younger Tradition, have been actively touring as a part of their Teenfresh world tour, looking for to solidify a worldwide fanbase and broaden their affect past the Asian market.
