During the Korean Wave (Hallyu), K-pop artists took their concerts outside of South Korea, and with increased exposure, became a huge success in other Asian countries, then started to expand to western music markets outside Asia.[1] The word Hallyu first originated in China during 1999 by journalists that were surprised how fast it spread in China.[2]

One study that examined the number of concerts held between 2013 to approximately May 2016, indicated that East Asia still had the most concerts, but their numbers were tapering, while North America, South America and Europe were showing consistent growth.[3] The top three countries with the most concerts abroad were Japan, China and the United States.[3] The study found most tours were those of male groups, with solo acts and female groups a small percentage.[3] The top ten touring acts, by the numbers, were Big Bang, Super Junior, 2PM, TVXQ, SHINee, EXO, Girls' Generation, F.T. Island, CNBLUE, XIA, Infinite and B1A4; with XIA the top solo act and IU the top female solo act.[3]

This is a list of all notable K-Pop concerts held outside the Asian continent.
