G-Dragon is going where no solo K-pop star has gone before: On a solo arena tour in America.

The singer-rapper and BIGBANG leader is embarking on a major world tour this summer with a slew of U.S. dates. The G-Dragon 2017 World Tour, Act Ⅲ, M.O.T.T.E. marks his third solo tour, but will be his first time playing solo concerts stateside. Fans of course remember seeing him with his BIGBANG band mates on their 2015 Made Tour that included arena shows in New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

M.O.T.T.E. stands for Moment of Truth The End, which likely refers to this being a major moment in the 28-year-old's career before he inevitably enlists in South Korea's mandatory military service. No doubt he'll bring a must-see show—and probably new music!—for the summer trek.

Tickets go on sale on May 5 at 12:00pm EDT via LiveNation. See the U.S. tour dates and venues below:
