Get your bodies (and your wallets) ready — BTS is coming to Canada, and they’re going to bring the house down.
The K-Pop boy band will be heading to Hamilton, Ont. as part of their highly-anticipated LOVE YOURSELF world tour. It is the only Canadian stop on the tour, with three dates scheduled in September:
- September 20, 2018 Hamilton, ON at FirstOntario Centre
- September 22, 2018 Hamilton, ON at FirstOntario Centre
- September 23, 2018 Hamilton, ON at FirstOntario Centre
The boys also have shows scheduled in Los Angeles, Oakland, Fort Worth, Newark Chicago and New York, with the last show taking place at New York’s Citi Field. It will be their first-ever stadium show and a new milestone for the Korean pop act.
"We will visit more cities, and I think we will definitely be like, adding more stages,” said group member RM to ET back in November. “I don't know the particular time of when we will be coming back,, but it will definitely be doper and bigger. It's gonna really happen."
Jill Kurtz of Core Entertainment said a total of 30,000 tickets for the three shows were released back in May. Tickets were initially sold for $80 to $325 each, and the demand was so high they sold out within the hour.
Fans who weren’t able to get tickets can still buy them on Ticketmaster, but they should prepare to pay much more — only resale tickets are currently available, and they’re going for $286.79 to $1,649.34 each.
BTS formed in 2013 and entered the American charts in 2017 with their record Love Yourself: Her. They plan to release a deluxe version of the album called Love Yourself: Answer ahead of the tour on Aug. 24.
