    Russian K-pop fans are preparing for the first ever concert of the South Korean artist in Moscow, with tickets already sold out.

    The long anticipated show will be part of GOT7's second world tour and will take place at the Adrenaline Stadium in Moscow on June 6. It is expected that the event, organized by MyMusicTaste and its local partner Brightside Concerts, will last about 3 hours. After the date of the concert was announced on February 22, Russia's aghase (official name of the group's fandom) went crazy.

    For those living under a rock, GOT7 is a very popular South Korean boy band, consisting of 7 members: JB, Mark Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam and Yugyeom. The group debuted in January 2014 on the record label JYP Entertainment with its first album "Got It?" which topped the Billboard World Albums chart.

    In March 2018, the group released its eighth album, titled "Eyes On You," which has sold over 300,000 copies.

    GOT7 performances are well-known for their vibrant, hip-hop-infused sound and choreography, which incorporates martial arts movements and a b-boying style. The group has become a worldwide sensation, as the boy band has won several South Korean and international music awards, including the MTV Europe Music Awards in the category Best Worldwide Artist.

    The concert in Moscow will be the first ever sold-out show of a South Korean artist in the country, as K-pop has become more popular among Russians.
