BTS gave fans all over the world a nice surprise on Apr. 26, announcing a world tour that will take the pop superstars to 11 cities across Asia, Europe, and North America. News of the tour came via Big Hit Entertainment's twitter account and promised additional shows will be added.
Coined the Love Yourself World Tour after the group's series of releases by the same name, the trek kicks off in Seoul, South Korea Aug. 25-26 before heading to the U.S. for shows in Los Angeles and Oakland, Calif. Additional North American dates include: Fort Worth, Texas; Hamilton, Ontario; Newark, N.J. and Chicago. The tour then heads to four European cities, wrapping up (for now) in Paris Oct. 19-20.
On May 18, BTS will release Love Yourself: Tear, the latest in the aforementioned series following 2017's Love Yourself: Her EP. The new album will be their third full-length following 2014's Dark & Wild and 2016's Wings.
BTS will also make a U.S. appearance on May 20 when they take the stage in Las Vegas at the Billboard Music Awards. The group has also promised to debut a brand new song at the event.
This isn't the first world tour for these Korean pop sensations. BTS mounted a 40-date tour after the release of Wings that took the group through Asia, South and North Americas, and Australia.
Ticket information for the Love Yourself World Tour is still forthcoming.
