SINGAPORE – BTS’ lead rapper Suga, real name Min Yoon-gi, will be bringing his Suga | Agust D tour to Singapore come June.
According to an Instagram post shared by concert promoter Live Nation Singapore at noon today, the show will span across two days from 17 Jun (Sat) to 18 Jun (Sun).

It will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, which has an approximate capacity of 12,000.
Agust D or Suga?
His first tour will be named after, well, himself. Agust D is his other alter ego besides Suga, one he’s already widely known for and it is commonly associated with K-pop supergroup BTS.
When Agust D is spelled backwards, it gives DT Suga. And DT is a sentimental nod to his hometown – Daegu Town.
So Agust D represents a more raw and unfiltered side of the 29 year-old rapper. One that he hasn’t been able to show much during his stint in BTS, according to an interview with Time Magazine.
A list of tour dates was released last week on BigHit Music’s Twitter handle. The tour will head to the U.S. before dropping by Asia, with stops in Jakarta, Bangkok and Singapore. To date, there are only three stops in Asia and all are two-day shows.

His solo show is a timely move as his bandmate Jin, or Kim Seok-jin, recently conscripted in the army as part of mandatory military duties.
To date, he only dropped two mixtapes. The first was an eponymous one titled Agust D (2016). Later in 2020, he released another named D-2 with title track Daechiwta (2020), with themes of traditional Korean storytelling and music.
While it will be Min’s first visit to Singapore for a solo show, BTS has held numerous shows here.
In 2019, the septet staged their Love Yourself show, as part of their world tour at the iconic National Stadium. They also performed alongside other K-pop acts at the Singapore edition of Music Bank in 2017.
Tickets to the show go from $168 to $348 for VIP tickets. VIP ticket holders, whether sitting or in standing pens, are entitled to the soundcheck session. They will also receive a commemorative laminate and landyard, with two exclusive photocards.
The Army membership presale commences on 3 Apr (Mon), from 11AM – 11:59PM. The Live Nation presale starts on the next day, on 4 Apr (Tue) from 11AM – 11:59PM here. General ticket sales start on 5 Apr (Wed) via Ticketmaster, at all SingPost outlets or via the +65 3158 8588 hotline.
Update on 5 Apr (Wed): Local promoter Live Nation Singapore said in an Instagram post that they are “pleased to announce a third show”, “due to overwhelming demand”. The show is expected to take place on 16 June (Fri).
Tickets to the newly added show go on sale from 5 Apr, Wed, 5PM, via Ticketmaster, at all SingPost outlets or via the +65 3158 8588 hotline.
