Update (12/16): Both U.S. dates of BTS' 2017 world tour were sold out in minutes and two more dates were added. 

Ticket prices for the new shows in Newark, NJ and Anaheim, CA range from $50 to $250 and will go on sale Saturday, Dec. 17, at 11a.m. local time. See below for an updated list of tour dates for BTS and more information about the tour.

Original Story (11/18): 2016 was huge for BTS as the boy band solidified their global appeal by breaking chart records in America and helping fill arenas for both the east and west coast iterations of KCON. But looking to next year, the Korean boy band is looking to truly solidify that superstar status with an upcoming world tour.

The septet announced The Wings Tour: 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III with seven dates in the tour revealed and all seem to be major arena stadiums. So far, the boys will hold shows in Asia, North and South America with a tour poster promising "more will be coming soon."

Booking the Prudential Center is particularly impressive as only the biggest K-pop acts—namely, BIGBANGEXO, 2PM, JYJ, 2NE1 and g.o.d, so far—have held shows at the Newark, NJ arena.

No information about when tickets go on sale or prices have been revealed. Check out the full date list below, along with the tour poster:

February 18-19 – Seoul, Korea (Gocheok Skydome)
March 12 – Santiago, Chile (Movistar Arena)
March 19-20 – Sao Paolo, Brazil (Citibank Hall)
March 23-24 – Newark, NJ (Prudential Center)
Mar 29 – Chicago, IL (Allstate Arena)
April 1-2 – Anaheim, CA (Honda Center)
