6 Hottest K-Pop Tours Coming to the United States
It used to be that if you were a K-pop fan living in the United States, the closest you could get to your favorite groups was YouTube. But things have changed a lot in recent years. Thanks to social media and frequent artist online interaction, it’s become easier than ever for K-pop artists to expand their global reach. And with fans eager to see their favorite K-pop idols in the flesh, tour stops in the US are increasingly a reality for top Korean groups and solo artists.
If you’re a big fan of K-pop, then you’ll be happy to know several top artists and groups have tour stops throughout the United States this fall and winter! Here are six current and upcoming tours K-pop fans don’t want to miss.
B.A.P. “Forever” Tour
Back in July, B.A.P. announced their plans to tour America during the fall. “We are planning for the most memorable B.A.P. tour experience for our fans in North America!” If you’re new to B.A.P., the group is known for their catchy hip-hop sound, comparable to other K-pop acts like Big Bang. Their loyal fans, Babyz, have stood beside this talented group through the highs and lows, and will no doubt be glad to see their favorite group in person.
B.A.P will have their first U.S. concert on November 8, at the UC Theatre in Berkeley, California. The US leg of their tour will continue through November, after which, B.A.P. will head to Europe. Shop tickets here
Crush “Crush On You” Tour
Although known for memorable collaborations with singers and rappers like Dean and Zico, it’s easy to forget that Crush is a much admired and soulful singer in his own right. Luckily, Crush is right there to remind everyone with his own “Crush On You” tour. The tour will mark the first time the R&B artist, whose real name is Shin Hyo-seob, has performed in North America. His first U.S. stop will be at the Manhattan Center Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, on November 23. Shop tickets here
Minzy “Dance Break” Tour
If you were a big fan of the K-pop girl group 2NE1, you’ll be glad to know former member Minzy (also known by her real name, Gong Min-ji) continued her music career as a solo artist. She’s a talented performer and dancer, so it’s hardly any surprise she named her upcoming North American tour “Dance Break.”
It’s her first solo North American tour, which is slated to run from November 21 through December 9. Minzy’s first stop is in San Francisco. Fans can expect to see her “flashy dance movements,” inspired by hip-hop, reggaeton, and Latin music. Shop tickets here
Day6 “Youth” World Tour
Although boy groups and girl groups tend to be the most popular and known aspects of Korean idol music, Day6 stands apart as a very unique band with memorable pop-rock tunes. Earlier this year the group announced their first world tour, which includes stops in the United States. American fans of the pop-rock group can next catch them on November 11 at the State Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shop tickets here
