Suga, a member of K-pop sensation BTS, will go on a world tour in six different countries starting in April, according to Big Hit Music on Wednesday.
The first concert will kick off at Belmont Park in the US on April 26 followed by other cities in the US including Newark, Rosemont, Los Angeles and Oakland.
Then, Suga will be moving on to the Asian leg of the tour starting with a gig in Indonesia on May 26 followed by those in Thailand, Singapore, South Korea and Japan.
The dates for his Japan concerts are yet to be announced.
This is Suga’s first tour as a solo artiste since his debut in August 2016 with his first album Agust D.
Suga has since unveiled his second mixtape, D-2, in 2020 and has worked with other Korean artistes, including K-pop diva IU and veteran ballad singer Lee So-ra, as well as American singer-songwriter Halsey.
Most recently, Suga’s collaboration with Psy for That That, the lead track on the Gangnam Style singer’s ninth full-length album, has made it onto many local and foreign music charts, including Billboard’s main singles chart.
Suga is also expected to release a solo album in time for his world tour.
The world tour will likely to be his last work before he starts his mandatory military service.
His latest concert was the “BTS ‘Yet To Come’ in Busan” concert held last October.
Suga runs his own talk show, Suchwita, on YouTube and Weverse in which he invites celebrities over for a drink and conversations about all things music and more.
Suga is the first from BTS to go on a world tour.
