BTS — the group of K-pop sensations who hit our earbuds with “Idol” in 2014 — announced Friday that they are back on the road for their second global album “Love Yourself: Tear,” set to release Tuesday.
“Olympics 2019! Finally after 2 years we’ll be touring again,” the group said in the video statement released on Twitter.
The group, which first formed on an episode of K-pop reality TV show “Big Bang” in 2013, will hit 17 North American cities this fall, making stops in New York, Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle.
The North American trek follows the previously announced European tour, which will make stops in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Portugal in October and November, according to their website.
The 8-track album, produced entirely by the group, is said to be their most personal collection, with love songs represented in every song. The “Love Yourself: Tear” album also features the group’s new single “Idol” — a post-“Idol” Tear-indie anthem.
BTS kicked off the tour with a rousing performance at London’s Wembley Stadium in March. The members of the group — RM, Jimin, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, and V — are currently busy jamming away on their trip to North America.
BTS released their last studio album “Love Yourself: Her” in April 2018.
