The K-pop boy band’s upcoming tour has already sold out major arenas like Newark’s Prudential Center and The Forum in L.A.
It’s only a few days into 2020 and ATEEZ is already proving to be one of K-pop’s hottest tickets of the year.
Billboard can exclusively share that after multiple sell-outs for ATEEZ’s upcoming The Fellowship: Map The Treasure World Tour, the boy band has opened more tickets to several shows on the trek as of today (Jan. 13).
So far, ATEEZ has sold out of tickets for their upcoming concerts in Los Angeles, Newark, Dallas, Madrid, Amsterdam, and Moscow — with others close to selling out — and more, standard-price tickets are now opened for seven of the shows.
After selling out all the U.S. dates in their 2019 The Expedition Tour of small theaters — which included Los Angeles’ Globe Theater and Brooklyn’s Warsaw venue, both 800-cap — this latest batch sell-outs comes in arena-sized venues including Newark’s Prudential Center, London’s SSE Arena and The Forum in L.A., the latter of which can seat up to 18,000 fans.
Since ATEEZ’s last stateside tour, the band has been busy with multiple new album releases (all of which hit the Top 10 of Billboard‘s World Albums chart) and signing a deal with RCA Records (with the U.S. label calling the band “a frontrunner in the [K-pop] space”). The group’s latest EP titled Treasure Epilogue: Action to Answer dropped just last week and is expected to make a splash when this week’s Billboard charts update.
