This is your admin, Velisha, with an important notice.
There is a misunderstanding regarding the issue of Boyfriend USA Tour lately. If you heard the info or you are USA Bestfriends, please read this carefully.
Some Bestfriends heard that Boyfriend is having a tour in the USA in October & November and tickets are already on sale.
We investigated this info and also sent a notification to Boyfriend manager via fancafe.
There is a mistake in some websites, especially ticketing website or concert schedule websites, which they put (Kpop) Boyfriend photos and discography in another artist’s tour schedule, which name is also Boyfriend. However, Boyfriend in this case is a female rapper and has no relation to Kpop Boyfriend.
It is confusing because the show title is 2015 Bounce Shakedown Tour. “Boyfriend” and “Bounce” plus Kpop Boyfriend’s photos lead fans to believe that this is the Kpop Boyfriend tour.
An additional info (unrelated to this case), there are also USA artists/group with the name BOY/FRIEND and Boyfriend Academy.
Fancafe manager already responded to our message and they posted an announcement in fancafe. All official events (overseas) will be announced through Boyfriend official fancafe and SNS.
However, we all know sometimes the fancafe is late in updating the schedules and we find information from third party source.
Whenever the forum comes across any info about Boyfriend event, we always research about it first before we pass the information in the forum or our twitter, eventhough it’s not listed in fancafe.
If available, we do some background checking about the organizer to make sure the event is legit or not. If we find a contact info, we will contact them to confirm it. For example, we searched Boyfriend in Kpop Fantasy 2015 in Poland and Boyfriend in Hallyu Festival 2015 in Almaty. Both overseas events are legit from legit organizers.
Even with all the confirmation, an event can be canceled due to many reasons. However, canceled event doesn’t mean it’s an illegal/unofficial event.
The first thing you have to do whenever you hear info about Boyfriend event (or any concert), before you buy the tickets, please do some research and checking.
You can contact your local fanbase first, artist representative, and the organizer. If none reply you back, ask international fanbase to confirm it.
You can always contact I’m Your Bestfriend Forum regarding Boyfriend event. We will help you to check it.
Thank you for anyone who asked us about this case & Hyeonjia for translating.
