Mark your calendars. K-pop icons BTS are coming to the region next month to perform a historic first show in KSA on 11 October, and you won’t want to miss it.
The best-selling boy band have announced that they will perform a date at Riyadh’s King Fahd International Stadium as part of their sell-out world tour, Love Yourself: Speak Yourself. The tour has so far seen the boys take the stage in South Korea, the US, Brazil, the UK, France, and Japan, delighting fans with live renditions of chart-topping hits like Silver Spoon, Fake Love, Fire and Boy With Luv. The concerts have broken records, racking up over $99 million (Dhs364 million) at the box office and grossing $50 million (Dhs184 million) during the month of May alone.
Since the band’s formation in 2013, BTS have taken the international music scene by storm, with four Billboard Music Awards, three Billboard 200-topping albums and a Time magazine cover and to their name. They were the first Asian artist to sell out the UK’s Wembley Stadium, whilst their album Love Yourself: Answer became the first-ever Korean album to receive a gold certification in the US.
