BTS's Map of the Soul Tour Dominates Worldwide Ticket Sales

BTS are already showing their phenomenal global power by outselling the other huge acts around recently, including Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande.

Tickets for the K-pop superstars' upcoming BTS: Map of the Soul Tour have been selling like wildfire, with some venues selling out within hours. 

The North American leg of the Map of the Soul Tour went on general sale to the public last Friday [February 7]. As of Monday [February 10], seven of the 15 shows had already sold out, including Dallas, Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Santa Clara, California; and Pasadena, California.

According to new statistics from Stubhub, BTS have sold almost twice as many tickets already as the whole of Super Bowl.

The 560% growth for BTS in the first 72 hours compares with Grande’s Sweetener Tour 2019, with a 378% growth, and Swift’s Lover Tour 2020, which had a 258% increase.

BTS fans from 50 states and 24 countries have purchased tickets, making the band StubHub’s No. 1 top-selling artist in the past 30 days. The record sales beat fellow superstars Billie Eilish, Post Malone, Elton John and My Chemical Romance.

BTS's world tour is set to kick off in April and will see the group perform in South Korea, North America, Europe and Japan. Fifteen of those dates include stadiums in the United States and Canada.

The tour is to promote their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Map of the Soul: 7, which is released next week.

Along with BTS's devoted Army, we're literally counting down the days!
