This week, K-pop sensation Monsta X announced their upcoming North American summer tour. Over the past four years, Monsta X has attracted a massive international fan base with their array of hit singles and tours, including a sold-out U.S. arena outing in 2019.
The highly anticipated tour kicks off June 2nd in Minneapolis and will visit arenas and theaters across the U.S. and Canada including Boston, Toronto, Phoenix, Ft. Lauderdale and more before culminating with a colossal show at The Forum in Los Angeles. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, January 17th at 3pm local time at LiveNation.com.
Monsta X has taken the U.S. by storm with a list of hits permeating the airwaves including the fifth single, “Middle of the Night,” from their upcoming album All About Luv which is set for a Valentine’s Day release. All About Luv will be the first all English-language album released by a K-pop group. Additionally, “WHO DO U LOVE?” positioned them as “only the second K-Pop group ever to enter the Top 40 Airplay Chart. ” With a historic performance at Life Is Beautiful in Las Vegas, they emerged as “the first male K-Pop group to perform at a major music festival in the United States,” and stood out as the first K-pop group in history to hit the stage at iHeartRadio Music Festival the same day. Additionally, they made their United States television debut on Good Morning America, followed by electric performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show and became the “first K-pop group to perform on the Teen Choice Awards.” Monsta X also charted on the Billboard Social 50 for over a year, remaining one of the biggest social media bands in the world.
