BTS SUGA’s world tour comes to an end; 3 final dates announced

SUGA, a member of the 21st century pop icon group BTS, wrapped up his solo world tour SUGA | Agust D TOUR ‘D-DAY’ last night on June 25 at one final concert in Jamsil Indoor Stadium.

Towards the end, as fans were sad to see him go, SUGA made a surprise announcement of three additional dates for the finale show in Seoul, South Korea. According to Korea Joongang Daily, SUGA | Agust D TOUR ‘D-DAY’ THE FINAL will be held at KSPO DOME in Seoul from August 4 to 6.

The tour began in April at UBS Arena in Elmont, New York. The opening show was followed by shows in Newark, Rosemont, Inglewood and Oakland in the U.S., The Manila Bulletin reports. SUGA then traveled to Indonesia, Japan, Thailand and Singapore before once again returning to South Korea, completing his tour with around 290,000 spectators through 25 shows in 10 different cities.

His setlist included songs of various genres that “solidified his identity as a genuine musician,” according to his company, HYBE. The first day of the Seoul show on June 24 even included world-star PSY of the famous song “Gangnam Style” as a surprise guest, performing “That That (feat. SUGA of BTS)” with SUGA.

The singer, rapper and producer has been establishing a specific musical identity since his debut, especially after he introduced his alias Agust D in 2016; gloomy yet aggressive. In many of his solos, SUGA shows his vulnerable and angry side to deal with sensitive topics. This same style could also be seen in his tour album “D-Day”.

According to the Manila Bulletin, Suga expressed his gratitude for his fans during Sunday night’s concert, saying, “Thank you for giving me the best time. We released an album at the end of April and started touring until the end of June, and it was a happy and good memory for two months. When we stand on stage again, we will stand as seven people.”

The singer was referring to the day when all BTS members will regroup after their military service.

Korea Joongang Daily reports that SUGA admitted to feeling “pretty lonely performing without the members here,” before pointing to the back of the second-floor seats where his group members Jimin, V, and Jungkook were waving enthusiastically in support of their fellow bandmate.
