BTS Earns Impressive Sum From 1st Stadium Tour “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself”; Makes Billboard’s Latest Hot Tours List
BTS’s first-ever worldwide stadium tour was a smash success!
After five months and 20 shows, the group recently wrapped up their first stadium tour “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” with three sold-out concerts in Seoul. According to Billboard, BTS sold 976,283 tickets and recorded an impressive $116.6 million (approximately 135.9 billion won) in earnings over the course of the tour, which took them to 10 cities and four continents this year.
BTS also ranked No. 2 on Billboard’s latest Hot Tours list, their official round-up of the month’s highest-grossing concert tours. The group’s final four “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” concerts in Riyadh and Seoul, which brought in a combined total of $16,490,586 (approximately 19.2 billion won), counted towards the list dated November 16. BTS came in second only to Elton John, who earned just over $21 million from 12 shows in eight cities during the same period of time.
BTS previously claimed No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Tours list twice for the “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” tour: once in May, after selling out eight shows in the United States and Brazil, and once in July, after selling out four concerts in Japan.
Congratulations to BTS on their impressive achievement!
