The Music Bank World Tour is a worldwide live concert tour of South Korean music show Music Bank by the Korean Broadcasting System. The tour stages live performances, featuring multiple K-pop acts, in various locations outside of South Korea. Since July 2011, the Music Bank World Tour has been held in multiple cities across Asia, Europe and Latin America with an estimated global live audience of 200,000.[1]

Background[edit]

Korean Broadcasting System's Music Bank is one of the most popular music programs of South Korea. It is broadcast live on KBS2 domestically since 1998, and is available globally with subtitles on KBS World, including on its official YouTube stream. It is one of the driving forces behind the Korean Wave and has a steady fan base around the world as it remains the most accessible of the major K-pop television shows.[2]

After a two-year hiatus, the tour restarted in 2017 with Singapore and Jakarta as its stops. It was hosted by popular former Music Bank hosts actor Park Bo-gum and Red Velvet's Irene.[3]
