SEOUL - Korean pop group BTS has sold out its upcoming Love Yourself world tour scheduled across 10 cities in Europe and North America.

According to the band's label Big Hit Entertainment, all of the 180,000 tickets for North America and 100,000 tickets for Europe have been sold.

Starting with concerts on Aug 25 and 26 in Seoul, BTS will embark on its world tour of 21 concerts, holding 14 in North America and seven in Europe.

The destinations include Los Angeles, Oakland, Fort Worth, Newark, and Chicago in the US, Hamilton in Canada, London in the UK, Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Berlin in Germany and Paris in France.

The ticket sales for the Seoul concert have not been released yet. The details regarding the concert at the Seoul Olympic Stadium will be announced in the future, according to the entertainment company.

Last week, the seven-member boyband became the first-ever K-pop group to top North America's Billboard 200 album charts with its third studio album, Love Yourself: Tear.

The album's lead track, titled Fake Love, racked up the third-largest 24-hour rating on YouTube since the video-streaming channel started keeping records. Fake Love clocked 35.9 million views in a single day on YouTube.

This 24-hour viewership is only outdone by Psy's Gentleman (36 million views in April 2013) and Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do ( 43.2 million YouTube views).
