GOT7 Announces 2018 World Tour With Four Dates in North America
Before the boom of K-pop, a world tour usually consisted of a few Asian cities and if you were lucky enough, maybe California. However, times have changed.
Earlier this month JYP Entertainment released a video teasing a world tour for their top-performing boy group, GOT7. Continents such as Europe, South America, North America were named on the trailer with no specific cities or dates listed.
On Wednesday (February 21), GOT7's official Twitter account released the official tour poster, which lists all dates and venues.
From Paris' Le Zenith to Los Angeles' The Forum, BamBam, Jackson, JB, Jinyoung, Yugyeom, Mark and Youngjae are proving K-pop's selling power by booking large capacity venues.
Notably, GOT7 will be the first ever K-pop boy group to take on Brooklyn's Barclays Center (July 11), one year after BIGBANG member G-Dragon held his solo concert there.
GOT7's World Tour kicks off at Jamsil Indoor Stadium in Seoul in May and makes its way to Europe, Asia, North America, and South America throughout the summer. The tour will conclude in August at the Asia World-Expo Arena in Hong Kong.
North American audiences can catch the group in Toronto (July 3), Los Angeles (July 6), Houston (July 8) and the aforementioned date in New York, all organized by SubKulture Entertainment and MyMusicTaste.
