K-pop superstars BTS will be returning with an online live-streaming concert next month, according to their agency.
Big Hit Music announced that the Grammy-nominated idol group will hold their online concert “BTS Permission to Dance on Stage” on Oct. 24.
“Permission to Dance” is a track that was included in the “Butter” CD single released in July. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the same month.
The upcoming online concert marks BTS’ first concert in a year since they held their “BTS Map of the Soul ON:E” online concert on Oct. 10 and 11, 2020.
“BTS Map of the Soul ON:E” was viewed across 191 countries and regions and incorporated cutting-edge technologies such as AR and XR that enabled BTS to closely interact with the fans through the “ARMY on Air” fan event.
"We'll be holding the 'BTS Permission to Dance on Stage,'" said V while Suga said, "We're going to meet ARMY through online streaming" in a video announcement for the concert released on Sept. 15.
Jin said, "Wow! When can we meet ARMY from around the globe?," to which Jimin replied, "We can meet them in upcoming October."
"Our stage is where you are. Please enjoy the concert with us that day," said J-Hope.
Last Sept. 14, Korean President Moon Jae-in met BTS at the Blue House, or his official office and residence, and gave them their appointment papers as his special envoy.
Moon appointed BTS as Special Presidential Envoy for Future Generations and Culture. The Korean president also gave BTS members their diplomatic passports, accorded to them due to their designation as special envoy.
BTS will fly to New York City and attend the second meeting of the Sustainable Development Goals Moment (SDG Moment) of the Decade of Action on Sept. 20 that will be held during the UN General Assembly.
