Located in Queens, Citi Field, home of the New York Mets, has a capacity of 40,000, according to local promoter Powerhouse Live. Apparently, this will also be the largest concert of any Korean artist in the U.S. to date.
“We will visit more cities, and I think we will definitely be like, adding more stages. I don’t know the particular time of when we will be coming back [to the U.S.], but it will definitely be doper and bigger,” leader Rap Monster told ET last year.
Tickets before and after the Citi Field show, except those in Japan, are completely sold out.
Other U.S. locations include Staples Center and Oracle Arena in California, Fort Worth Convention Center in Texas, Prudential Center in New Jersey and United Center in Illinois.
The hype is clearly real as BTS returns with a new album, “Love Yourself: Answer,” on Aug. 24.
