BTS Is Coming To Canada
OMG! BTS is coming to T.O. (Cue the screams.)
K-pop phenoms Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook will perform concerts on May 30 and 31 at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.
It is the only Canadian stop on The Map of the Soul Tour, which was announced Tuesday. The other North American cities on the list are Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington and Chicago.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Feb. 7 but there are several pre-sale opportunities.
Rogers Centre can accommodate as many as 55,000 people for concerts, meaning BTS could play in front of 110,000 fans over the two nights – a huge jump from the group's Canadian debut in September 2015 at the 1,350-capacity Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto.
Map of the Soul: 7 is due out Feb. 21.
BTS was last in Canada in September 2018 for three concerts at FirstOntario Place in Hamilton, Ont. as part of the Love Yourself Tour.
