BTS just added their name to the list of one of very few artists to ever sell out this massive stadium, and they did it in less than two hours. 

The K-pop group is continuing to prove they’re one of the biggest phenomena in the world, establishing themselves as a global name that’s breaking records previously held by some of the most timeless names in music.

BTS’ recently announced Love Yourself: Speak Yourself World Tour makes just a few stops around the world, with London’s 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium as one of them. Tickets priced from around $65-$230 sold out in under 90 minutes, making history as the first Asian artist to sell it out and adding their name to a list alongside Adele, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé, and One Direction

In data shared by ticket sales company VividSeats, numbers show that the group outsold huge names like the Rolling Stones and Cardi B on March 1. Charts also illustrated how their ARMY fanbase is becoming more and more diverse, with a huge increase in the amount of females ages 24-35 that purchased tickets.
