BTS announce European tour, including two London shows

The K-Pop heroes are heading to the UK for the first time ever

BTS have announced their first ever European tour – including two shows at London’s O2 Arena.

The hugely popular K-pop stars will play two shows at the huge venue on 9 and 10 October, their first ever performances in Britain.

It’ll then be followed by a string of arena-sized dates across Europe, including Amsterdam on 13 October, Berlin on 16 and 17 October, and Paris on 19 and 20 October.

The boyband, consisting of members RM, V, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin and Jungkook, have amassed a huge global following – becoming one of the leading global K-Pop exports.

In 2017, the group also beat Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes in the Top Social Artist category at the Billboard Awards.

The win marked the first time that a K-Pop band had triumphed at a major US music ceremony.

“We still cannot believe that we are standing here on this stage at the Billboard Music Awards”, the band said at the time.

“It’s so great to see all the artists we admire. To be in this category with such great artists, we are just really honoured.”

They’re also set to premiere new single ‘We Are So Excited’ at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas in May.
