NYC wakes up to BTS show on GMA
BTS was the first performer in the 2019 GMA Summer Concert Series, which will run from May 15 to Aug. 30 and feature a high-profile pop act every week, including Ellie Goulding, whose show is set for June 14, the band’s management agency, Big Hit Entertainment, said.
The Korean septet performed two of its hit songs - “Boy With Luv” and “Fire” - during the Wednesday concert, electrifying some 5,000 fans there. Tickets for the outdoor show sold out as soon as they went on sale.
When the concert’s host compared BTS to the Beatles, the members called themselves fans of the iconic British band and said they were honored.
On May 4, BTS kicked off the U.S. leg of its “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
On Saturday and Sunday, the septet will perform at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
