The K-pop boyband BTS, known also as Bangtan Boys, sent fans into a frenzy with their tour announcement earlier this year, and now they’ve added another show to the run – making the group the first K-pop band to play a U.S. stadium.

In April, BTS dropped news of their Love Yourself world tour, which will kick-off in Seoul, South Korea on August 25. They will make a brief, month-long stop in the U.S., hitting just five cities – Forth Worth, Chicago, Newark, Oakland, and Los Angeles. However, BTS just announced a new show at New York City’s Citi Field to wrap-up the trek on October 6.

Citi Field has a capacity of 40,000, and while it is usually used for the baseball team Mets, it occasionally hosts concerts. Only an act that can sell enough tickets decide to invest in a venue like this, proving the boyband’s popularity. They will join powerhouse acts like Zac Brown Band, Dead & Company, and Lady Gaga who have performed at the stadium before.

BTS continues to break records; this year, they released their third Japanese LP Face Yourself and third official full-length, Love Yourself: Tear. Not only did Love Yourself: Tear become the first K-pop album to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart, but it was also the first predominantly non-English album to top the chart since 2012.

They are best-known for the hit tracks “Fake Love” and “DNA,” both racking up more than 120 million Spotify streams. Their highly-anticipated new record, Love Yourself: Answer, is due August 24.

Check out BTS’ brief run of tour dates across the globe and in the U.S. below.
