BTS will hold its first live concert since the COVID-19 pandemic in Los Angeles in November

South Korean boy band BTS plans to hold a live concert in Los Angeles in November for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak, forcing them to cancel their global tour and rely on online performances. The board announced this on Tuesday.

Bithit Music said the concert, titled “Permitting Dance on Stage,” will take place from November 27 to 28 and December 1 to 2 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

“It’s not easy to hold a concert in the middle of COVID-19,” the company said in a statement on its online fan platform Reverse.

“Concerts can be held in the United States, taking into account national and regional health regulations and circumstances.”

The event will be the first live performance by a group of seven members since finishing their tour from North America to Europe and Asia in April 2019.

As COVID-19 spread around the world, the band had to cancel their largest international tour, which included nearly 40 concerts.

Instead, I gave a virtual concert. Last October it attracted more than 990,000 viewers from 191 countries and ticket sales totaled approximately 50 billion won ($42.4 million).

BTS said its members had been fully vaccinated against the virus. Last week, they were held directly in the UN General Assembly as the World Organization’s Special Envoy to Future Generations and Cultures to promote its agenda, including the fight against poverty, inequality, injustice, and climate change. I attended the event.
