The K-pop boy band will hit NYC, LA, San Jose and Toronto over a week.
After weeks of crowdfunding via K-pop concert kickstarter Krowdpop, boy band Teen Top has confirmed four North American dates in its "HIGH KICK" world tour. The sextet will hit the New York, Los Angeles, San Jose and Toronto areas in a whirlwind week of touring.
The four dates were selected after fans in each area proved high social interest to get a potential show. Then fans committed ticket purchases to each show before three dates reached the goal of $150,000 in ticket sales. The Toronto show only hit 90% of the funding, but was eventually confirmed. Potential shows in other areas, including Dallas, did not receieve enough funds.
Tickets are on sale via Krowdpop for the San Jose and Toronto dates. Meanwhile, tickets for the New York and Los Angeles dates are available via AXS. Prices range from $50 to $255.
There is also a special chance for those not fortunate to afford tickets, with KPOP UNITED (the K-pop fan community that runs Krowdpop) promising to give one Teen Top supporter who can't afford tickets the chance to meet the group and tickets to a show. Interested fans can apply here.
Last year was exciting for Teen Top, with its first full-length album release and two top 10 singles of the K-Pop Hot 100, "Rocking" (below) and "Ms. Right." The boys also visited their L.A. fans when they were in town for K-pop convention KCON in August, as well as their European supporters with five shows on the continent.
As part of the "HIGH KICK" world tour, Teen Top has already performed in its native South Korea and Japan.

How can they confirm it so late? Kpop in general moves at a crazy fast pace, but this seems a bit insane... I hope they can sell out everywhere.
