BTS’ Suga on what fans can expect from first solo world tour: ‘Beyond what everyone can imagine’
The K-pop star, who also performs as Agust D, recently released his debut album D-Day and a Disney+ documentary.
BTS member Suga said his upcoming solo world tour will show the real person behind his different personas – including his solo alter ego Agust D and his real name Min Yunki.
The K-pop star is the first member of the South Korean boy band to embark on a solo jaunt across the world, and each of his personas and the real person behind the music will be present in what he's teased as "a tour beyond what everyone can imagine."
He told NME: “This tour will show Suga and Agust D as an artist, and Min Yunki as a person.
“I’ll just put it like this – ‘Suga, Agust D and Min Yunki’s tour that will burn it up’. I dare say it’ll be a totally different tour from previous BTS tours, and a tour beyond what everyone can imagine.”
The Suga / Agust D Tour will take place in North America, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, and Japan. He’ll be performing at the Singapore Indoor Stadium for three nights – from Jun 16 to 17.
Alongside his debut album, D-Day, his Disney+ documentary Suga: Road to D-Day was released last week.
The film chronicles the artist's solo album journey, which saw him visit the US, South Korea and Japan in search of inspiration for the record, which marks the end of his trilogy of solo EPs, following 2016's Agust D and 2020's D-2.
The docu features collaborators and friends in the industry, including Halsey, Steve Aoki, Anderson .Paak and the late Ryuichi Sakamoto.
The 30-year-old rapper-and-songwriter said: “Just finding joy in travelling is itself a new discovery for me.
“Also, I gained a lot from having genuine interactions with greatly renowned international musicians who I had a chance to collaborate with or was very close with personally. It was (a) great lesson for me as an artist and also from person to person.”
Suga also recently released the music video for his new song Amygdala under his moniker Agust D. Watch the video below.
