A spokesman for a prominent global ticket marketplace has noted that the Korean boy band is rising in popularity at “an unstoppable rate”.

As South Korean boy band BTS embarks on its BTS World Tour: Love Yourself, it turns out that their ticket sales managed to eclipse those of famous performers like Drake, Ariana Grande, and the Spice Girls, Metro reports.

According to the newspaper, the data provided by StubHub UK, "the world’s largest ticket marketplace", shows that "Drake is second place followed by Post Malone, Panic! At The Disco and the Spice Girls reunion tour rounding off the top five".
