The Tonight Belongs to You Tour (abbreviated as TBTY Tour) was In Real Life's debut concert tour named after their fourth single, "Tonight Belongs to You," which was released earlier that year in July. It began on September 9, 2018, at The Filmore in College Park, Maryland, and concluded on November 11, 2018, at SM City Cebu in Cebu City, comprising of 27 dates.[1] Insular Life, the first Filipino life insurance company, supported the Philippines leg of the tour. Additionally, JAGMAC and Spencer Sutherland were announced as the opening acts.

Background

On June 4, 2018, IRL announced their headline tour.[2] Over an Instagram livestream, Conor Michael Smith shared that each of them have an original song that will get fans to know them better. On August 6, 2018, tour dates were added.[3] On August 25, 2018, the tour dates in the Philippines were revealed.[4] On September 28, 2018, M1M Entertainment gave an update on the tour dates in the Philippines.

To Soundigest, Chance Perez shared, "I've been anticipating this tour for so long! I can't wait to get out there and share all the new songs and choreography that we've been working on. This life is every childhood dream I've ever had, come true. Tonight Belongs to You Tour is going to be one to remember. Drew Ramos added, "The fans can expect new music and new choreography. They're going to see something completely new from us. We're putting our all into this show and we hope our fans will love seeing something new!"[5] To Central Times, Sergio Calderon said, "This is the first [tour] that's just us, so it opens your eyes and makes you realize how many fans you have all around because I never knew how many people supported us. It's been super fun." In the same interview, Brady Tutton mentioned that his favorite song to perform was "Eyes Closed" because of the nostalgia.[6]

Critical reception

Alessandra Guarneri of UnitedbyPop wrote a positive review, stating, "Their choreography, in-sync harmonies, and contagious smiles made it nearly impossible for fans to look away. Each member was given the opportunity to shine with an individual performance, as well as through their own communication with the crowd in between songs." They added upon the inclusion of cover songs in their set list, "This made for an interactive show in a more intimate venue, which is an ideal experience for any fan or concert-goer."[7] Additionally, Beyond the State remarked of the Chicago show, "perfect night for great vocals, a perfected stage presence, genuine fan interaction and more."[8]
