Korean boy band EXO drew 70,000 fans to their two-day final concerts in Seoul, South Korea on May 27 and 28.

The idol group wrapped up their "EXO Planet #3 – The EXO'rDIUM" world tour with the Seoul encore concerts held at Jamsil Stadium, the largest venue in Korea, that was previously used by stars Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Cho Yong Pil and Lee Moon-se.

For three hours of each show, EXO performed 31 songs including "Mama" remix, "Wolf," "Love Me Right," "Heaven," "Girl X Friend," "3.6.5," "Overdose," "Transformer," "Lightsaber," "Full Moon," "Drop That," "Lucky," "Run," "My Lady" and "Call Me Baby."

In their world tour, EXO performed in 37 shows in 11 countries and regions covering South Korea, China, Japan, United States, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Mexico.

On the last day of the Seoul concert, EXO had a press conference to talk about performing at such massive venue and their music.

"Just being able to hold our concert here is a great honor. We will do our best," said Kai, according to Soompi.

Leader Suho said, "It's an honor to be performing on the same stage as groups like H.O.T, god, and Shinhwa. We will show you the greatest performance we've ever given."

"We're so happy to be greeting our Korean fans for the first time in a while. We actually performed in this venue for an 'SMTOWN' concert in our early days, and back then, I wondered if we'd ever be able to perform a solo concert here. And here we are," according to Xiumin.

They also announced their much-awaited comeback in Korea in the summer.

"Our title track has already been decided. It is a track that all the members and the agency is satisfied with, so we have a lot of expectations. We will be returning this summer," revealed Baekhyun.

The idol group celebrated their fifth anniversary in April and they're very thankful for the fans' support.

"It's thanks to our members' teamwork. We've become more unified, and we have even more expectations for the future. If we were supported by our genuineness and passion until now, we will promote with unity and a veteran-like stance moving forward," the group said.
