BTS Announce Four-Night Las Vegas Residency
BTS have announced a four-night Las Vegas residency.
The K-pop band – made up of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook – has unveiled plans to bring the ‘Permission To Dance On Stage’ concert to Sin City’s Allegiant Stadium, which can hold nearly 65,000 people.
The shows will take place on April 8, 9, 15 and 16, while the concert will be streamed online on the last day of the tour.
There will also be a special in-person live broadcast event ‘Live Play in Las Vegas’ at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on all four dates.
It comes after the group announced three huge homecoming shows at the Seoul Olympic Stadium on March 10, 12 and 13, which mark the group’s first in-person gigs in Korea since October 2019.
In December, the boy band took an “extended period of rest” to “recharge” after completing their ‘Permission To Dance On Stage’ and ‘Jingle Bell Tour’ commitments.
And it was also teased that the ‘My Universe’ hitmakers are preparing their next album.
A statement said: “BTS will be focusing on preparing for the concert and release of the new album that will mark the beginning of a ‘new chapter.’ They are preparing for a concert this coming March to connect and communicate with the fans in-person in Seoul.
“We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all the fans who continue to cheer for BTS and they will return as their best, healthiest selves after recharging so they can return all the love from the fans. Thank you.”
The group has been hit with cases of COVID-19 over the past few months, and V was the latest member to test positive for the virus earlier this month.
Big Hit confirmed: “V completed two rounds of COVID-19 vaccinations and is not presenting any extraordinary symptoms other than a mild fever and sore throat.
“He is currently undergoing treatment at home while waiting for further guidelines from the health care authorities.
“The company places the artists’ health as our top priority and we will do everything we can to aid V in his speedy recovery.
“We will also diligently cooperate with the requests and guidelines of the healthcare authorities.”
The company noted V had been in contact with other members of BTS shortly before his positive test but it was not close contact and everyone was wearing a mask.
No other members of the group are showing any symptoms, and everyone has tested negative for the virus.
Last month, Jimin tested positive for the virus while in the hospital to undergo emergency surgery after falling ill with appendicitis.
In December, RM, Jin, and Suga all tested positive for COVID-19, but they had mild symptoms.
