K-pop sensation BTS have added a second date to their shows at Wembley Stadium, after their first show sold out in 90 minutes.
The seven-piece boy band will now appear in London on 2 June, in addition to the slot on 1 June.
Tickets for the new Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour date go on sale on Friday 8 March, according to Wembley’s Guest Support Portal website.
Prices will be from £45 to £160 and Wembley advised fans to monitor the stadium’s social media for more information.
Anyone under 14 is required to attend with an adult.
The move comes days after ticket agencies were criticised for reselling tickets to the 1 June date for thousands of pounds.
On Saturday, Sky News founds dozens of tickets for the event on sale on ticket resellers for more than £1,000 a seat.
A post on Wembley Stadium’s Twitter page said: Thanks to all your love and support, NEW SHOW ADDED! BTS WORLD TOUR ‘LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF’ is coming to WEMBLEY STADIUM on 02.06.2019!
Fans on Twitter expressed delight at the extra date but concern that they might not be able to get tickets due to the intense competition and tickets going on sale on a school day.
One, calling themselves Claud, said: thank you! please be considerate with the selling times tho, many of us armys are still in school and its super stressful for you to start selling the tickets on a friday morning..
Another, calling themselves Myreligionkarma added: OMG, there’s still hope!! Please let us who didn’t get tickets for the first show to have a chance at this one. I hope all of you, including myself, who got dissapointed and devastated for not getting tickets yesterday the best of luck on March 8. Fighting
The shows will be band’s first in Britain since their concerts at the O2 sold out last year.
After tickets for the 1 June event went on sale, #BTSxWembley was the top trending hashtag worldwide for a while.
Despite being active since 2013, in the last few months, BTS – short for Bangtan Boys – have taken the world by storm and are now one of the most popular groups in the world.
Early in 2018, the band, who mostly sing in Korean, became the first from South Korea to achieve a gold sales certification in the US.
They have gone on to have two number one US Billboard chart albums, and currently have 3.2 million followers of their official BTS A.R.M.Y. fanclub twitter feed.
Despite their popularity, BTS are yet to have a UK top 10 hit. Last year their song Idol, featuring Nicki Minaj, got to number 21. The album Love Yourself: Tear reached number eight in the UK chart.
According to the NME and other sources, they are one of just a select few to stage performances over consecutive dates at the new incarnation of the historic stadium.
The band have also sold out the Stade de France in Paris and several arenas in the US including the Los Angeles Rose Bowl, New Jersey’s Metlife stadium and Live Nation Chicago.
Billboard website says the phenomenon in part stems from a change in strategy by K-pop record label bosses to target Western markets after China banned South Korean music in the wake of a US-South Korea missile-system agreement in 2016.
Peter Vanham, media lead for US and industries at the World Economic Forum in Davos, recently wrote that BTS’s success can be put down to the consequences of increasing globalisation.
