BTS will make history on Oct. 6 when they become the first-ever Korean artist to perform a stadium show in the United States, it was confirmed today (Aug. 8) by local Love Yourself tour promoter Powerhouse Live.
The group will end the North American leg of their upcoming world tour in New York City at Queens' Citi Field. The news comes after the septet previously sold out more than a dozen shows in the United States and Canada, including two in Newark, New Jersey the prior weekend.
According to Powerhouse, Citi Field has a capacity for 40,000 concertgoers. It will be the largest concert ever put on Stateside by any Korean artist. ?Citi Field is the home to MLB baseball team the New York Mets.
