South Korean boy band BTS is embarking on a worldwide Map of the Soul Tour, and Texas will be the location of one of the few concerts in North America. The group will play two dates at Dallas' Cotton Bowl Stadium, May 9 and 10.

The tour is said to be "their biggest North American tour ever," but it will still only consist of nine cities, starting with two concerts in Santa Clara, California on April 25 and 26. Additional stops will include Los Angeles; Orlando; Atlanta; East Rutherford, New Jersey; Washington, D.C.; Toronto; and Chicago.

The tour follows last year’s massive BTS World Tour - 'Love Yourself: Speak Yourself,' which sold out six stadium shows in the U.S. in mere minutes. 

BTS has worked its way into the fabric of the American music industry, appearing at the 2019 Grammy Awards and on Saturday Night Live a couple months later. They were also named as one of the 100 most influential people of 2019 by Time magazine.

The Map of the Soul tour is in support of their forthcoming new album, Map of the Soul: 7, which will be released on February 21.

Tickets can be purchased through the Ticketmaster Verified Fan platform. BTS Global Official Fanclub Army Membership users will have the first chance to participate in the presale, beginning at 3 pm February 5 through 11 pm February 6. The General Verified Fan presale (for non-fan club members) will begin at 3 pm through 11 pm on February 6.
