2016 saw a lot of BTS: the K-pop boy band broke chart records, headlined two nights of KCON USA, and won top accolades in Korea. And on Dec. 14, the septet sold out two major U.S. arenas, then promptly added two new shows to their upcoming The Wings Tour to meet the demand of K-pop fans.
Tickets for both American legs of BTS’ The Wings Tour 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III went on sale at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, and within a few hours sold out entirely. Concert-goers who hoped to see BTS perform at Newark’s Prudential Center on March 24 and Anaheim’s Honda Center on April 1 quickly discovered that tickets were no longer available, as fans from around the country rapidly bought tickets to see one of K-pop’s most popular acts.
Following the lightning-fast sale, concert organizer Powerhouse wrote on Twitter that it considered “making an important announcement tomorrow.” The following day, Powerhouse revealed that BTS would add an additional show to both its east and west coast legs of The Wings Tour. The concert series will begin a day earlier, on March 23, in Newark and end on April 2 at the Honda Center.
