After only sticking to virtual concerts for two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, BTS will finally sing and dance in front of a live audience this fall. On Monday, Sept. 27, the septet announced that four in-person shows will be held in Los Angeles at the end of 2021. Since the concerts will mark their first U.S. performances in front of a live audience since their 2019 Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour (aside from their recent Global Citizen Live show), there’s no doubt millions of fans will be trying to get tickets to see them once again. In order to make sure you don’t miss out, here’s everything you need to know about BTS' Permission To Dance On Stage LA concerts.
ARMYs have been waiting a long time to see BTS in concert. After the group’s Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour ended in October 2019, they announced in January 2020 fans could expect to see them again during their Map of the Soul world tour, which was supposed to run from April to September that year. However, due to COVID-19, BTS was unfortunately forced to cancel their first four concerts in Seoul that February. They ended up postponing their entire tour that August and then officially canceled it in August 2021.
Now, after two years of waiting, ARMYs will finally get to see BTS in person again. If you’re planning on buying tickets, check out all the details surrounding BTS' upcoming concerts below.
