Asian pop sensation Super Junior will hold their third Asia tour starting August, according to their agency on Monday.
SM Entertainment announced through a press release that the band will perform in a total of 13 cities throughout Asia for the "SUPER SHOW 3" starting mid-August.
The tour will kick off in their home country of South Korea where there will stage two shows -- on August 14 and 15 at the Olympic Park in Seoul -- and continue on into other cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Manilla.
The boys had wrapped up their second round of concerts in Asia, a nine-month long tour carried out in nine cities, in the Philippines this April.
The show had set several new records such as the band becoming the first artists to hold a standing concert in China and the foreign artist to attract the largest audience.
Originally composed of 13 members, they are currently promoting their fourth full-length album "BONAMANA" as a ten-man band as members Kang-in, Kibum and Hangeng decided to take a break from group activities.
Tickets for the Seoul show will be available at online reservation site Gmarket starting June 17, 8 p.m.
