BTS, also known as the Bangtan Boys, is a seven piece South Korean boy band formed by Big Hit Entertainment.
Their debut single came in 2013 with No More Dream, a track from their first album, '2 Cool 4 Skool'. The boys won several New Artist of the Year awards for the track, including the 2013 Melon Music and Golden Disc Awards, and the 2014 Seoul Music Awards.
The band continued to rise to widespread prominence with their subsequent albums and EPs 'Dark & Wild' in 2014, 'The Most Beautiful Moment in Life, Part 2' a year later and 'The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever' in 2016, with the latter two entering the U.S. Billboard 200 and winning Album of the Year at the 2016 Melon Music Awards. Their latest album was 'Face Yourself', released in April 2018.
Known for their large social media presence, BTS were listed by Forbes as the most retweeted artist on Twitter in March 2016 - being liked or retweeted over half a billion times worldwide - more than U.S. President Donald Trump and Justin Bieber combined. They've also used their massive influence and status to help charities - donating large sums of food and money to charities around the world.
BTS have announced a mammoth world tour which includes two UK dates at London's O2 Arena in October, as well as dates across Europe and North America. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
