MONSTA X will be going on its second European tour.

The tour will be kicking off on June 17 at the Eventim Apollo in London. From there, the group will be performing at AFAS Live in Amsterdam on the 20th, and then finishing up with a concert at the Palacio Vistalegre in Madrid on the 23rd. 

The second European tour came to fruition as a result of requests made by the group’s European fans. MONSTA X’s fans took to MyMusicTaste, a fan-initiated concert organizing platform, to get their favorite group to perform in their cities. MONSTA X’s first European tour was also organized  through MyMusicTaste last year.

MONSTA X made their debut in 2015, and have gained popularity for their powerful music and spectacular choreography. The group established a strong foothold in the K-pop industry after their first studio album, The Clan Pt. 2.5: The Final Chapter, topped the Billboard World Albums chart, the iTunes U.S. charts, and K-pop charts in Japan.

MONSTA X’s first world tour took the group to 16 cities in 11 countries. After performing in a total of 18 concerts, MONSTA X returned to Korea with their fifth extended play titled The Code with leading track “DRAMARAMA.” The group won their first music broadcast award with the song “DRAMARAMA” in November 2017.  MONSTA X is currently preparing to make their comeback at the end of the month.
