BTS Suga Wraps Up North American Tour Amid Acclaim, Attracting Over 155,000 Fans and Winning Foreign Media Praise
BTS group member Suga has successfully concluded his North American tour.
From last month, starting with two concerts at the Belmont Park UBS Arena in the United States on the 26th and 27th, he continued on to the Newark Prudential Center on the 29th, the Allstate Arena in Rosemont on May 3rd and from the 5th to the 6th, the Kia Forum in Los Angeles from the 10th to 11th and 14th, and the Oakland Arena on the 16th and 17th for his 'SUGA | Agust D TOUR D-DAY' North American tour.
#Over 155,000 fans attended... All North American tour concerts sold out
Upon the announcement of Suga's first solo world tour, all of the North American concerts sold out quickly. Suga performed in front of over 155,000 fans during the 11 concerts held in five cities.
In these concerts, Suga showed off his diverse charm as Suga and Agust D, mainly performing songs from his solo album 'D-DAY' and the previous mixtapes 'Agust D' and 'D-2'. Especially, through the VCR and stage set-up depicting the evolution of Suga and Agust D, the production melting these two 'selves,' and the concert filled with traces of his relentless pondering as a 'musician,' Suga is firmly establishing his identity as an artist.
Responding to this, the fans who filled the concert hall with a purple light provided explosive energy, singing along with the setlist and completing the stage with Suga.
The Los Angeles concert featured surprise guest appearances that drew explosive responses. On the 11th, Suga performed 'Burn It' with MAX and on the 14th, he sang 'SUGA's Interlude' with Halsey, presenting perfect harmonies.
#"The star of the tour... Suga, Agust D, and Min Yoongi" Foreign media reviews
The North American tour, which captivated the audience with a riveting composition, also received high praise from foreign media. The British music magazine NME gave a perfect score to the world tour concert, praising it as an "opportunity to showcase his musicianship," while the American entertainment outlet Variety stated, "Suga shows off the burning energy and musical and performance skills built over a career that started 10 years ago."
American media Nylon praised, "As the first member of BTS to go on a solo tour, Suga is not overwhelmed by the pressure to put on his own show, but rather is actively performing. Even when performing on the most basic stage, his charisma overflows, demonstrating his ability as a true professional." American entertainment media Teen Vogue said, "Suga excited the audience with special effects, bands, and unique stage devices. The 'D-DAY' tour, presented by three protagonists (BTS Suga, another self 'Agust D', and Min Yoongi), is comparable to rock opera and theatre performances."
Meanwhile, Suga will continue his world tour in Jakarta from the 26th to 28th of this month, Japan from June 2nd to 4th, Bangkok from the 9th to 11th, Singapore from the 16th to 18th, and Seoul from the 24th to 25th.
