BTS’ ‘Love Yourself: Speak Yourself’ World Tour Earnings Revealed
How much did BTS make on tour? The answer is a lot.
Last month, the group wrapped up their successful Love Yourself: Speak Yourself Tour in Seoul, South Korea after performing shows in cities across North and South America, Europe and Asia.
Now, Billboard Boxscore has reported BTS' first worldwide stadium tour earned $116.6 million and sold 976,283 tickets, which averages out to a whopping $5.8 million and 48,814 tickets per show.
According to the data, only the Rolling Stones ($11.1 million), Taylor Swift ($6.1 million) and the Spice Girls ($6 million) sold more. Meanwhile, the boys now rank at No. 2 on the current Hot Tours tally, behind Elton John and ahead of Queen + Adam Lambert, Shawn Mendes, The Vampire Weekend and more.
BTS' tour earnings are just another feat to add to their growing list of accomplishments for 2018 and 2019. The group's global dominance reached unprecedented heights, not only becoming the top-selling K-pop act in the U.S. but performing a number of sold-out shows in some of the biggest stadiums in the world.
RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook will also be performing at this year's Jingle Ball alongside Katy Perry, Halsey, Lizzo, Billie Eilish and more. Tickets and information are available here.
