K-pop boy group Stray Kids announced details for the North American portion of their global “Maniac” tour today. 

Their social media posts revealed the venues and dates for the seven shows planned for the U.S. leg of their “Maniac” tour, named after their recent comeback.

“Maniac” U.S. tour dates:

June 29 – Newark, NJ at Prudential Center

July 1 – Chicago, IL at United Center

July 3 – Atlanta, GA at State Farm Arena

July 6 – Fort Worth, TX at Dickies Arena

July 9 – Los Angeles, CA at Kia Forum

July 12 – Oakland, CA at Oakland Arena

July 14 – Seattle, WA at Climate Pledge Arena

The group will start their global tour later this month in Seoul before moving on to Japan in May and then the U.S. for June and July. The tour follows the release of their “Ordinary” EP, which debuted earlier last month at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart.

Stray Kids’ previous world tour “District 9: Unlock” ran from late 2019 to early 2020 and never finished after the remaining shows were canceled or postponed due to COVID-19.

As the octet prepares to go on tour, former member Woojin was recently announced as the first-ever Korean lead for an HBO Max original series. Woojin left the group’s agency JYP Entertainment in October 2019 due to “personal reasons.”

Tickets for Stray Kids’ “Maniac” North American tour will go on sale through Ticketmaster and LiveNation on Friday, April 22, at 6:00 p.m. EST.
