BTS will kick off the Love Yourself World Tour this August, starting its first concert in Seoul. Big Hit Entertainment released a teaser poster and an initial schedule for the tour, which includes 22 concerts across 11 cities, spanning Seoul, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Germany, France, and the United States.

The Love Yourself World Tour will open its gates on August 25th and 26th at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul.

Following the Seoul concert, and starting in September, BTS will continue their world tour across major cities in North America and Europe, which include Los Angeles, Oakland, Fort Worth, Newark and Chicago in the U.S., Hamilton/Canada, London/U.K, Amsterdam/Netherlands, Berlin/Germany and Paris/France.

“BTS will launch a brand-new tour this year, titled Love Yourself, following last year’s success of the Trilogy Episode begun in 2014,” states Big Hit Entertainment. “We have only released the concert schedule whose dates and venues have been confirmed, and will announce further schedules as they are confirmed later on.”

Last year, BTS successfully completed the 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III The Wings Tour, recording 40 sold-out concerts held across 19 cities. Meanwhile, BTS will release their third studio album, Love Yourself ‘Tear’ on May 18th. BTS is also set to perform a world television premiere of their new song in Las Vegas when they take the stage at the 2018 BBMAs.
