BTS announced eight new dates to extend their world tour on Tuesday (Feb. 19).
The new dates, at stadiums around the world including the Rose Bowl in L.A. and London’s Wembley Stadium, promptly sent the K-pop group’s fervent fandom into a frenzy on social media.
Following the announcement, the tour’s official hashtag, #SPEAK_YOURSELF trended both worldwide and in the United States on Twitter.
BTS WORLD TOUR ‘LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF’ is the boy band’s first tour since the record-shattering release of their two 2018 albums, Love Yourself: Tear and Face Yourself. Tickets for the North American dates go on sale March 1 at 10 a.m. local time.

Is this how my parents & grandparents felt during the era of the Beatles? Michael Jackson? Elvis?
To live in an era where a phenomenon is born?
