I think I could have made some money a decade or so ago by suggesting that K-Pop would become popular enough in the US for groups to add North America to their World Tour schedules. The delightfully named (G)I-Dle will make six stops in the US this August for their ‘I am FREE-TY’ world tour. While I am sure that title means something to those in the K-Pop world, that would not include me, so I am sorry for not getting the reference!
The tour is what you would expect from a group of this type. It hits size major markets over the course of two weeks, with (G)I-Dle putting on Shows in (or in the metro at least) San Francisco, Los Angeles, Dallas, New York, Atlanta, and Chicago. The girls then travel over to Europe before finishing their tour in Tokyo.

This is the second time that (G)I-Dle will be touring in the US. Their ‘Just Me ()I-DLE’ tour in 2022 was a success, hitting eight US cities and spots in South America and Mexico. K-Pop has a rabid fanbase, so expect to see the six cities on this tour sell out as fans from nearby locations fly in to catch the group.
