SOARING TO GREATER HEIGHTS, BTS SETS FORTH ON THE WINGS TOUR AND WILL BE HOLDING THEIR FIRST TWO-DAY SHOW IN MANILA
PH A.R.M.Ys, you’ve kept your ear to the ground for this announcement. Now it is with great excitement and pleasure that PULP Live World finally announces the 2017 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE III: THE WINGS TOUR IN MANILA!
The world stage bore witness to the way BTS rose with a steady momentum. BTS, comprised of Jin, Suga, Rap Monster, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, emerged as one of the most promising KPop boy groups in 2013, earning different awards from award-giving bodies that saw the potential that they held.This superb beginning was followed by an even stronger assault as BTS embarked on the 2014 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE II: THE RED BULLET from late 2014 to 2015, which saw BTS taking on their first major solo concert tour and making their first performance on Philippine soil—PULP Live World mounted the group’s first Manila show at the Mall of Asia Arena on December 7, 2014.
BTS was indeed bulletproof—they were invincible and unstoppable, effectively and effortlessly snatching the limelight to their focus with their infectious energy, heart-stopping choreography, and exceptional hip hop flavor as seen, heard, and felt in surefire hits like “We Are Bulletproof Pt. 2”, “Boy In Luv”, “Danger”, and more, in every stage they set afire across the globe.They concluded this groundbreaking world tour on a high note, rounding up a total of 19 sold-out shows. But relentless as they were, they soon came out with their two-part The Most Beautiful Moment in Life (화양연화) EP series which shot straight to the top of various music charts such as Gaon, iTunes, and MelOn, even breaking into the Billboard 200 chart as well as Billboard’s World Album charts.
They then kicked off the 2016 BTS LIVE <花樣年華 On Stage: Epilogue> Tour in Korea and went on to make a couple of stops across Asia, including Manila. For the second time, BTS shared their boundless talent with PH A.R.M.Ys at a packed show in the MOA Arena, also made possible by PULP Live World. Just within three hours after going on sale, tickets for this show were SOLD OUT as PH A.R.M.Ys were extremely eager to see the boys once more. The rest of the Asia dates for the Epilogue tour were all packed, with all 144,000 tickets for 14 performances in 10 countries selling out very fast.
Following their 2015 release was the largely successful compilation album BTS put out in May 2016, 화양연화: Young Forever, which sold over 300,000 copies in the one-week pre-sale period alone—another feat in the KPop industry under BTS’ belt. It didn’t take long until BTS grew into prominence, gaining more recognition in the form of various nominations, and awards. More recently, they took home a Daesang (HotelsCombined Artist of the Year) at the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards, and won a Bonsang at both the 2016 Seoul Music Awards (where they took home the most number of awards out of all the other artists), and the 2017 Golden Disk Awards—all for their phenomenal work on WINGS.
Now, as BTS sets forth on what may just be their biggest and most explosive concert tour yet. The Wings Tour kicked off last February 18-19 at Korea’s Gocheok Skydome, with BTS setting the record for being the first group to sell out the massive venue twice in a row, with over 38,000 tickets gone the same day they went on sale. This continued, and soon more and more shows were sold out– tickets sold very fast in the US and in their Latin America dates as well. Following this trend, it seems the same would be said about Asia, especially Manila.
PH A.R.M.Ys sure have something to look forward to as for the first time ever, BTS will be holding a two-day show in Manila! Soaring to greater heights, BTS will be bringing the 2017 BTS LIVE TRILOGY EPISODE III: THE WINGS TOUR in Manila on May 6-7, 2017 at the Mall of Asia Arena.
It’s time to assemble anew and raise your A.R.M.Y Bombs as we illuminate the MOA Arena and make it brighter than BTS has ever seen it before.
