This will be EXO’s third world tour. Koreaboo reports that the tickets for the concert tour dates in America have not gone on sale as yet and the vendors have not been announced. However, for the concert in Mexico fans can buy tickets from concert promoter, Dilemma.
News of the details of EXO’s tour comes as the group cements their success on the charts and awards shows. As Inquisitr previously reported, the group recently won Album Of The Year for their album Ex’act at the Golden Disk Awards.
As Inquisitr noted previously, the event, which takes place every year, is like the Korean Grammy Awards and is meant to highlight top achievers in Kpop from the previous year. This is actually the fourth time that EXO have won this award, and it wasn’t their only prize. EXO also won the the Disk Bonsang and Ceci Asia Icon Awards.
“It was an honor in itself to stand on stage with all of our seniors and juniors at the Golden Disc Awards, but we’ve been honored with a huge award. Thank you to Lee Soo Man, who named us, our SM family, and everyone who helps us from behind the scenes. I sincerely thank our EXO-Ls.” the group said in their acceptance speech.
International Business Times also reports that the sales on EXO’s albums released in 2016 crossed the 2 million mark making the group Kpop kings of album sales.
In terms of a breakdown of the sales of each album, EX’ACT and Lotto sold 1.17 million copies in total. For Life, the group’s special winter album, sold 425,000 copies. EXO-CBX’s, EXO’s Chinese subgroup, put out a mini-album in 2016 called Hey, Mama! and that sold 276,000 copies. Finally, EXO’s Lay released a solo album last year called Lose Control and that sold 260,000 copies.
