The K-Pop group – comprised of Jimin, V, RM, J-Hope, Jungkook, Suga and Jin – performed two shows at the capital’s O2 Arena last year in support of their sixth album, ‘Love Yourself: Tear’. Reviewing the band’s New York stop-off, NME hailed the concert as “a dazzling and inclusive stadium spectacular”.
Now, it’s been announced that BTS will be bringing the show back to UK soil. Extending their current tour with a further eight dates, the group are due to play Wembley Stadium on June 1.

Tickets will go on general sale on March 1.
BTS have also added a date at Paris’ Stade de France stadium, which will take place the following week (June 7).
BTS made history in 2018 as they became the first-ever K-pop group to be nominated for a Grammy. Following their appearance at the ceremony, Dolly Parton expressed interest in a collaboration after seeing a video of the group enjoying her performance on the night.
“Maybe my next #Jolene collab will be with @BTS_twt? What do y’all think?” the star tweeted.
BTS also presented the award for Best R&B Album at the event, with leader RM sending a message to fans: “We’ll be back.”
