Global pop sensation confirms eight new stadium dates
Following a record-breaking 2018, BTS is further cementing their position as the biggest pop act on the planet as they announce their BTS World Tour Love Yourself: Speak Yourself, with a line-up of eight stadiums spanning North America, South America, Europe and Asia.
The tour comes fresh on the heels of their first-ever stadium show in New York at Citi Field Stadium last October, which sold-out in minutes. BTS World Tour Love Yourself: Speak Yourself kicks off its monumental stadium run on May 4th at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Los Angeles, CA before traveling through Soldier Field in Chicago, IL; MetLife Stadium in E. Rutherford, NJ; Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Wembley Stadium powered by EE in London, UK; and Stade de France in Paris, France. It is also scheduled to hit Yanmar Stadium Nagai in Osaka, Japan and Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa in Shizuoka, Japan the following July.
Ticket information, including seating charts and prices, will be released soon. Tickets for the Los Angeles, Chicago and East Rutherford shows go on sale to the general public starting March 1st at 10 am local time. Public on sale for London is March 1st at 8:30 am local time. Paris tickets go on sale to the general public starting March 1st at 9 am local time. Sao Paulo tickets go on sale to the general public starting March 11th at 10 am local time. Ticket on sales for both Japanese shows will be announced at a later date.
The global boy band recently made history as the first Korean act to present at the GRAMMY Awards. In 2018, BTS scored two No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, embarked on a sold out world tour, landed the cover of TIME, and had the highest-grossing cinema event with Burn the Stage: the Movie. While millions across the world celebrate BTS as a culture, the band continues to break ground, connecting with the people through their music.
