Tour Notes:

BTS, which formed in 2013 as a seven-member K-pop and hip-hop boy band, launched their 2018/2019 “Love Yourself/Speak Yourself” world tour in Seoul Olympic Stadium in late August, 2018 before performing at large venues North America and Europe in late 2018, then packing stadiums around the world. The group, which performs its songs and rap numbers in Korean, emerged at #3 on Billboard’s Nov. 1-Oct. 31 charts with $196 million in ticket sales and 1.6 million fans attending 42 shows. (The band’s 14-month tour included 62 shows in all.)
