Epik High announced today that five more dates and three new cities have been added to their 2015 North American Tour, making this the largest K-pop concert tour series in North America since 2010.

During the initial sale for tour tickets on April 15, the Vancouver and Toronto shows sold out within the first hour, followed by the New York show at the end of the first week. Due to high demands, additional shows have been added, including encore shows in Vancouver and New York.

Additional dates and venues include:

June 1: Vancouver, B.C. at the Vogue Theatre (encore show added)
June 2: Seattle, Wash. at The Showbox
June 4: Chicago, Ill. at House of Blues
June 7: Atlanta, Ga. at Center Stage
June 13: New York, N.Y. at Best Buy Theater (encore show added)

Tickets for additional stops will go on sale at 12 p.m. in each venue’s city on May 6 at the tour’s official website.

Last month, Epik High headlined the K-pop Night Out showcase at South by Southwest. Formed in 2001 as an underground hip-hop group, Epik High is considered one of South Korea’s most influential hip-hop artists.

Their eighth studio album SHOEBOX has been praised for its musical narrative and artistic lyrics, topping Korean and global music charts.
