GOT7 is taking the United States by storm. The K-pop group had a successful concert in Los Angeles last week and their label, JYP Entertainment, couldn't be prouder.

GOT7 performed at The Forum in LA for the first stop of the U.S. leg of their 2018 Eyes on You concert tour. The Korean boy band proudly informed their fans all over the world that they were able to sell out all of the tickets for the venue.

"LA! [Tonight] was truly a moment that I'll never be able to forget. I still can't believe that we were able to perform at The Forum in the United States," GOT7 member Jackson wrote on Instagram along with a back and white photo of the crowd. He thanked their fans for their support while GOT7 also shared some concert footage on their official social media sites.

Meanwhile, JYP Entertainment boss Park Jin Young also posted a clip of GOT7 appearing on the LED billboard outside The Forum. The GOT7 concert venue is where the LA Lakers used to play basketball. This makes JY Park proud of his artists for having a concert at the place which he called "legendary."

All seven members of GOT7 were able to perform in Los Angeles. Member Yugyeom earlier slipped while performing his solo stage at their concert at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada. In a statement, JYP Entertainment assured that the GOT7 maknae was not injured and Yugyeom will be joining his bandmates in the U.S. leg.

JB, Mark, Jackson, Jinyoung, Youngjae, BamBam, and Yugyeom also performed for their fans in Houston, Texas last Sunday. The group will visit New York City next. They are set to perform at the Barclays Center on July 11.

The boys are also scheduled to appear in the morning show Good Day New York while in the city. The K-pop group will be heading to Latin American after the NYC concert before traveling back to Asia for a concert in Singapore and Hong Kong.

In other GOT7 news, the band's fans accused Golden Child's label of copying the album concept of the JYP artists. According to some iGOT7 members, Golden Child's Goldenness album packaging is similar to GOT7's Flight Log: Turbulence packaging concept. They also noticed the resemblance of the two bands' CD design, the album package stickers, and the plane ticket-themed photo cards.

Many members of the iGOT7 believe that Woollim Entertainment blatantly copied GOT7's album. They emphasized that they are not blaming Golden Child at all but only the group's label, AllKpop reported.

GOT7 released their fifth EP, Flight Log: Departure, along with its title track "Fly" in March 2016. Golden Child, on the other hand, dropped their first single album Goldeness last month.
