South Korean worldwide phenoms BTS (formerly Bangtan Boys) will bring their third world tour to Hamilton, Ontario next week with three (yes, that’s THREE) stadium shows at FirstOntario Centre (101 York Blvd) on September 20th, 22nd and 23rd. These are the only Canadian dates on the seven-member pop group’s BTS World Tour: Love Yourself.
Since debuting under BigHit Entertainment in 2013 as “Bangtan Boys”, the singers have gained a loyal following with original, well-produced singles that bucked the sonic trends of the time. Internationally, they became a household name in 2017 when their album “Love Yourself: Her” dropped, and the boys performed at the American Music Awards. The members are as follows: Suga (Min Yoon-gi), J-Hope (Jung Ho-Seok), Jin (Kim Seok-jin), RM (Kim Nam-joon), Jimin (Park Ji-min), V (Kim Tae-hyung) and Junkook (Jeon Jung-kook). Fame, memes, much-lauded remixes and guest features have followed (from Steve Aoki to Nicki Minaj). Their 33-stop tour through Asia, North America Europe is a natural continuation of their upward trajectory.
If you haven’t yet acquainted yourself with BTS, now is the time to start. The seven-strong group of underdogs have paved the way for South Korean groups to come… and they’re not going anywhere. Tickets for the shows are on sale at Ticketmaster.
