BTS announces Highlight 2015 tour in collaboration with Community 54
The boys of BTS haven't even finished The Red Bullet tour making its way through the US later this month, but they have already set their sights on the future. Teaming up with Collaboration 54, their 4-city North American fan meeting tour will take off in September and will offer more than meets the eye.
Community 54 is a unique lifestyle clothing brand based in Manhattan's Lower East Side. In addition to expanding their horizons with a second store in Toronto, Canada, the founders have also sought an unlikely partner in up-and-coming K-pop group BTS (Bangtan Boys). The collaboration will result in a limited edition streetwear line, to be called "F/W2015" and will be released along with its photo campaign at a later date.
To help promote this new line, BTS will be returning to North America for a promotional tour, deemed "Highlight 2015," presented by Community 54 and TGM Entertainment in September 2015. In addition to the group, each stop will also feature a local artist from the US or Canada. The lucky cities are the following:
San Francisco, CA - September 22nd
Houston, TX - September 24th
Atlanta, GA - September 26th
Toronto, Canada - September 27th
Ticketing is as unique as their collaboration! Instead of traditional tickets, you purchase a promotional t-shirt for the event which acts as your entry and gets you a hi-touch with BTS. Shirts are available for $70 via Tictail. Passes for autographs and group photograph sessions will also be available at a later day. More information about those opportunities with be available on TGM Entertainment's Facebook page.
I'm looking forward to seeing BTS again after KCON last year and my interview with Rap Monster and Warren G. earlier this year. Look forward to coverage of their TRB tour stop in Chicago and coverage of Highlight 2015 coming soon!
