South Korean boy band BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, have added a second date to their Rose Bowl engagement as part of their, “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour.
Riding a hot hand, the band said they are also adding shows in London, Paris, New Jersey, and Chicago after fans quickly snatched up tickets.
Formed by South Korean firm Big Hit Entertainment in 2013, BTS won several New Artist of the Year awards for the track “No More Dream” and gained prominence with their subsequent albums Dark and Wild (2014), The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2 (2015) and The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever (2016).
BTS made history last year when their album “Love Yourself: Tear” made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. The album, which features the song “Fake Love,” is the first primarily foreign language album to top the charts since Il Divo’s “Ancora” 12 years ago.
BTS will be at the Rose Bowl May 4 and May 5.
Tickets went on on sale March 1.
