BTS send fans into a frenzy while performing in Los Angeles

STORY: K-Pop sensation BTS are playing their first in-person concerts since the start of the pandemic in Los Angeles and legions of their die-hard fans have descended on the city to see their idols in person.

The seven-member group will hold four “Permission to Dance on Stage” concerts at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on November 27-28 and December 1-2.

The concerts BTS’ first since 2019, when they wrapped up their last tour from North America to Europe to Asia.

Since their 2013 debut, BTS has spearheaded a global K-Pop craze with catchy, upbeat music and dances, as well as lyrics and social campaigns aimed at empowering young people.

Last week, the band won the top prize of artist of the year at the American Music Awards and best pop song for their summer hit “Butter,” among other awards.

As the pandemic spread last year, the band postponed and then called off what was meant to be its biggest international tour involving nearly 40 concerts. Instead, it has held online shows.
