BTS make history as first K-pop band to play US stadium

BTS make history by becoming the first K-pop band to play a US stadium.

The Korean group will play New York's Citi Field in Queens on October 6.

The venue has a capacity for 40,000. Currently all the other dates of BTS's North American tour are sold out. 

Promoter, Powerhouse Live, say the Queens night will be the last of the group's North American leg of their Love Yourself world tour.  See all tour dates here. 

BTS are the first K-Pop/Asian artist to debut No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, and the first Korean artist to have two RIAA© certified Gold singles. They are also the only artist who won Top Social Artist for two consecutive years at the Billboard Music Awards (2017 and 2018).

BTS released their long-awaited Japanese-language album, Face Yourself, in the US on 27 July 27 2018.

BTS chose the American Music Awards to make their eagerly awaited debut on US television on 19 November 2017.
