Another record set by BTS in history of K-Pop: the group has become the first Korean artists to have a stadium concert in the U.S!
On August 9, it was confirmed that BTS added one more stop in their “Love Yourself” world tour by holding a concert at Citi Field stadium in New York on October 6.
This stop is especially meaningful because it made them the first Korean group to hold a stadium concert in America. According to a source, about 40,000 seats are available for the concert at Citi Field, which is larger than any other venues the group has hold concerts before.
Previously, BTS had mentioned their wish to hold an international concert at a stadium during their interview with American press. With the upcoming concert in New York, the group achieves their dream and set another record in K-Pop history.
Meanwhile, the group is currently preparing to release their repackaged album “Love Yourself: Answer” on August 24. Afterwards, they will embark on another world tour, starting with Seoul on August 25 and 26. During the tour, BTS plans to hold in total of 33 concerts in 16 different cities around the world.
