Following the Seoul leg, BTS traveled to South America for its concert in Chile and Brazil, which sold 44,000 tickets. Ticket sales and distribution company Puntoticket named the boys as the fastest Korean boy group to sell out Chile’s biggest indoor arena. Wings Tour is also the fastest selling show in Chile’s history, only comparable to American band Maroon 5‘s 2016 concert in the area.
