ATEEZ to Embark on U.S. Arena Tour

By November 30, 2019 No Comments

Less than two years after their debut, ATEEZ will be setting off on an arena tour in the U.S. in 2020! This marks the group’s second tour in the States, following their “Expedition” tour in 2019. “The Fellowship: Map the Treasure” tour will kick off in Newark on April 17th and will make its way west to finish in Los Angeles on April 26th.

Although ATEEZ debuted in October 2018, the eight-member group promoted previously as a trainee group named KQ Fellaz. They were first introduced to the public in a YouTube series titled, “KQ Fellaz American Training,” and they starred on their own pre-debut reality show on Mnet, “Code Name is Ateez.”

The group made their formal debut with “Treasure EP1: All To Zero,” a mini album featuring double title tracks “Pirate King” and “Treasure.” The album peaked at #7 on the Gaon Albums Chart. Since then, ATEEZ has had three comebacks to complete their Treasure series, which includes lead songs such as “Say My Name,” “Wave,” and “Wonderland.”

Despite having just turned a year old as a group, ATEEZ already has several achievements under their belt. The group won their first music award at the Soribada Awards this year, taking home the Best Performance Award, as well as their first music show win this year with their song “Wave.” The group has also received immense support overseas, performing sold out shows on their previous tour in the U.S., Europe, Australia, and throughout Asia. Their international success has even landed them a record deal with American company RCA Records, who will be taking care of their U.S. promotions moving forward.

Hongjoong, Seonghwa, Yunho, Yeosang, San, Mingi, Wooyoung and Jongho will be performing in five arenas throughout the U.S. next April. Make sure to check out the event date and location details below:
