BTS Lead Whopping 1,700 Percent Increase in K-Pop Tickets Demand Over 4-Year Span
BTS are the top-selling K-pop act in the U.S.
According to data from Vivid Seats, the music genre has increased by a whopping 1,700 percent in ticket demands since 2015—with BTS leading the way with a significant amount of more tickets sold than any other group. The list also includes Blackpink, NCT 127, TxT, Stray Kids, Monsta X, Red Velvet, Got7, Twice and Sunmi.
The website notes BTS has the "most notable in the undeniable growth of K-pop" and "has already accomplished musical feats previously held by some of the most well-established, uber-popular acts in American music."
Plus, in just four years, the group went from performing at small venues to selling out massive stadiums like London's Wembley and New Jersey's MetLife. As previously reported, the group's recent tour outsold some of music's biggest stars, including the Rolling Stones, Cardi B, Korn and Florida Georgia Line.

It's certainly an incredible feat for the boys, who are already having their best year yet. Not only did they drop a number of hit collaborations, but they've been invited to become recording academy members, they're releasing a new mobile game called BTS World, and they made history at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
It's safe to say BTS is just getting started and their global dominance is undeniable.
