Suga’s Agust D Tour (which is titled after the performer’s other stage name Agust D) will mean he is the first member of K-pop band BTS to embark on a solo world tour.
The rapper will perform two shows at UBS Arena in Belmont Park, New York on April 26 and 27, before playing one show in Newark, New Jersey on April 29. Suga will then take to the stage at Allstate arena in Rosemont for three nights on May 3, 5 and 6, before travelling to Los Angeles’ Kia Forum for three shows on May 10, 11 and 14.
The tour’s US leg will then finish with two performances on May 16 and 17 at Oakland Arena in Oakland, California. He will then embark on the Asia leg of the Agust D Tour.
