GOT7 Members Holding a World Tour? BamBam, Jay B, and Jinyoung Make Surprise Announcement on April Fools' Day

On April 1, GOT7 members BamBam, Jay B, and Jinyoung announced that they will be going on a solo world tour, surprising many fans. While many Ahgases expressed their excitement on social media, some got suspicious since the announcements were made on April Fools' Day.

GOT7 BamBam Announces Solo World Tour

After their exclusive contracts with JYP Entertainment expired, all seven GOT7 members took the chance to make promotions as solo artists, though the boy group has not disbanded.

Among the members is BamBam who has joined ABYSS Company, home to a few artists, such as Sunmi, Park Won, and Urban Zakapa.

On April 1, GOT7 BamBam took to his social media accounts to make an announcement. Through a teaser video, the "Encore" singer revealed that he will be holding a world tour this 2021.

Titled "BAMBAM Money City: World Tour 2021," the event is said to be coming soon and will take place in different cities around the world such as Seoul, Los Angeles, New York, Dubai, Bangkok, Brazil, and more.

Since a world tour is one of the major activities K-pop artists do, Ahgase (GOT7's fan club), especially the fans living in the countries mentioned in the moving teaser photo, were surprised by the announcement and got excited about BamBam's world tour.

However, some fans quickly took note that BamBam announced it on April Fools' Day, and concluded that the "world tour" news might be a prank as part of the annual custom.

And it turned out that fans were right.

After several hours, GOT7 BamBam confirmed the theories that his world tour was, in fact, a prank through another teaser video.

After posting this, he retweeted a post of one fan calling him out for his prank.

Based on their Instagram stories, Jinyoung will have an "I DON'T HAVE TOUR" in 2022, while Jay B's solo world tour will be called "I'M NOT CUTE TOUR" and it will be held in 2028.
