Tickets for the North American dates will be going on sale on March 1 at 10 a.m. local time, but prices have not been released yet. Fans were also surprised at how short of notice Big Hit gave about the tour and the sale date, with many saying they would have liked more time to save up their money for tickets. Needless to say, come March 1, tickets will sell out in a matter of minutes. With every date of their current tour being sold out, this new one will prove to be massively successful for the group.
The tour dates are as follows:
May 4, 2019 – Los Angeles, CA Rose Bowl Stadium
May 11, 2019 – Chicago, IL Soldier Field
May 18, 2019 – E. Rutherford, NJ Metlife Stadium
May 25, 2019 – Sao Paulo, Brazil Allianz Parque
June 1, 2019 – London, UK Wembley Stadium
June 7, 2019 – Paris, France Stade de France
July 6-7, 2019 – Osaka, Japan Yanmar Stadium Nagai
July 13-14, 2019 – Shizuoka, Japan Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa
The group’s current “LOVE YOURSELF” world tour will conclude on April 7 in Bangkok, Thailand. They will then be taking a much needed and well-deserved break before the next leg. However, eagle-eyed fans were quick to notice that on BTS’ official website, it says “more dates to come,” so it’s possible that the tour could be extended even further depending on demand.
