Monsta X to Hit up Seven U.S Cities This Summer

Summer is promising to be a big month for K-pop acts heading stateside, and one more boy band just joined the lineup: Monsta X is going to be stopping in seven U.S. cities throughout July and August.

After being formed through a television show in 2015, the seven-membered Monsta X quickly rose to prominence among the K-pop boy band scene and became known for their powerful performances and hip-hop-laden dance tracks.

Their most recent single "Dramarame" peaked at No. 7 on the World Digital Song Sales chart. Monsta X embarked on their first U.S. tour in 2017.
