BTS has announced its first in-person concerts in Seoul in two years, bringing its ‘Permission To Dance On Stage’ tour to its hometown next month.
The group will perform at the city’s Jamsil Olympic Stadium on March 10, 12, and 13 – its first in-person gigs in the city since it performed at the same venue for the ‘Love Yourself: Speak Yourself (The Final)’ shows in October 2019.
The concerts on March 10 and 13 will be streamed online in real-time, while the March 12 concert will be broadcast at “live viewing” events in theaters across the globe. Tickets for the in-person shows are available via the Korean INTERPARK ticket reservation site and will only be made available to members of the BTS Global Official Fanclub ARMY Membership.
More details on the online and live viewing broadcasts, including ticketing details, will be announced soon.
BTS began its ‘Permission To Dance On Stage’ tour last year with four in-person concerts at LA’s SoFi Stadium. Prior to that, the band held an online-only concert at Jamsil Olympic Stadium under the same tour moniker.
The Los Angeles gigs were the biggest single venue concert engagement by any act in almost a decade, Billboard reported afterward. A total of 214,000 tickets were sold for the shows, grossing $33.3 million.
While BTS was in LA last year, the world-conquering group stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to record two performances – a vibrant rendition of its hit single “Butter” and a traffic-stopping crosswalk performance featuring that same track, plus “Permission To Dance” and “Dynamite.”
BTS has been nominated for a Grammy at April’s awards. The band was shortlisted for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Butter,” alongside Doja Cat and SZA, Tony Bennett & Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco, and Coldplay.
