Producer/singer Park Jin-young and his army of talents are set to entertain the masses Stateside with the launch of The JYP Tour.
The 36-year-old, who made his stage comeback last year, will be toplining the concerts with appearances by his protégés: girl group Wonder Girls, J-Lim, Min and G-Soul.
The tour, which is a continuation of JYP’s Bad Party concerts in Korea, kicks off at the WaMu Theater, New York Madison Square Garden on Feb 29.
JYP and his entourage will then roll into the Los Angeles Wiltern Theater on March 8. The gang will also be making stops in Atlanta and San Francisco.
