Get excited, ARMYs, because BTS just booked another legendary stage: MTV Unplugged. The series, which focuses on acoustic performances, has been around since the late '80s, so a lot of iconic artists have appeared on the show over the years, including Nirvana, Paul McCartney, Mariah Carey, and more. Since each star on their roster has left a footprint on music, BTS was bound to be invited someday. Now, fans can rejoice because that day is coming sooner than later. Here's everything you need to know about BTS' MTV Unplugged concert details to get prepared.
MTV announced BTS as their latest Unplugged guest in a Feb. 9 tweet. "@BTS_twt is coming to MTV for one DYNAMITE night with #MTVUnplugged," the company's official Twitter account wrote. Fans were ecstatic over the news because only the biggest stars appear on the show, and BTS was so deserving of an invite.
After launching in 1989, MTV Unplugged became a huge hit in the '90s and early 2000s. From Elton John and Aerosmith, to Shakira and Jay-Z, just about every major artist has been a guest. Their episodes were so loved that many of their performances turned into live albums, and some of those records even earned Grammy awards. BTS' appearance is expected to be big as well, so here are all the details about their concert you need to know.
Fans won't have to wait long to see BTS appear on MTV Unplugged. Their episode is scheduled on MTV for Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 9 p.m. ET. Make sure to mark this in your calendars, ARMYs, because you don't want to miss out.
To go along with their announcement, MTV gave fans a promo of BTS' guest appearance on Feb. 9. Fans will be happy to hear all seven members will be present. After Suga announced his hiatus in November 2020 due to his shoulder surgery, ARMYs didn't know when he'll return, so seeing him in the promo was a nice surprise.
By the looks of it, BTS will perform in various sets and outfits. In some shots, they're sitting together backed by a live band, but in others, they're performing while standing in the middle of a set.
