2PM Add Four U.S. Dates for 'Go Crazy' World Tour
The boy band will play the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas areas in their first solo U.S. shows since 2010.
The K-pop boy band has announced four major concerts in the U.S. as part of their "Go Crazy!" 2PM World Tour. Similar to fellow established boy band g.o.d, 2PM has booked bigger venues than most K-pop acts play when visiting Stateside, including the New York area's Prudential Center and other bigger venues in Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas.
The U.S. dates follow recently wrapped stops in Korea, China and Thailand, with the latter show bringing out 10,000 attendees, according to the band's record label JYP Entertainment.
Fans best take advantage of these opportunities as it may be the last time they see the boys live for some time. 2PM recently spoke about plans for all their band members, with the exception of Nichkhun, to enlist in the military soon as part of South Korea's mandatory two-year service for men.
The upcoming concerts will certainly be a treat for fans who haven't seen a solo show from 2PM since they opened for Wonder Girls' U.S. trek in 2010.
To date, 2PM has racked up three albums on Billboard's World Albums chart with Still 02:00PM EP (No. 13 on the chart), Grown (No. 6) and most-recent release Go Crazy! (No. 7). The band also earned their second No. 1 on the Japan Hot 100 earlier this month when "Midaretemina" topped the ranking, following their No. 1 from November 2013 with "Winter Games." The band's 2013 single "A.D.T.O.Y" (below) was named one of Billboard's best K-pop songs of the year.
2PM join g.o.d, VIXX and Korean hip-hop crew AOMG Records as the latest Korean act to pencil in American concert dates for November. Ticket information will likely be released through 2PM's Facebook or through Powerhouse Live.
