BTS to perform first concert in Seoul in over 2 years tonight
BTS will meet its local ARMY, the name of the boy band's fans, for the first time since the Covid-19 pandemic began. The band will perform “BTS Permission to Dance on Stage - Seoul” at Olympic Stadium in Jamsil, southern Seoul from 7 p.m. Thursday.
BTS last performed in Seoul in October 2019 as part of its “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself Tour.”
The concert will be take place on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Thursday and Sunday concerts will be livestreamed online for the global fans.
The band will perform its hit songs such as “Butter” (2021), “Dynamite” (2020) and “Permission To Dance” (2021). The band has selected different playlists for each night.
Some 45,000 fans will attend the three performances, making the concerts the largest since before the Covid-19 pandemic. The band's music label Big Hit Music said staff will check the temperatures of concertgoers who are also required to wear masks. When the concert is finished, fans will leave in designated groups so as to prevent large crowds from gathering.
