Seoul (Reuters) – South Korean boy band BTS plans to hold a live concert in Los Angeles in November for the first time since the outbreak of the coronavirus, forcing them to cancel their global tour and rely on online performances. The management said on Tuesday.

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

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

“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 of 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, including nearly 40 concerts.

Instead, I gave a virtual concert. In October last year, it attracted more than 990,000 viewers from 191 countries, and ticket sales were about 50 billion won ($ 42.4 million).

BTS said its members were completely vaccinated against the virus. Last week they were held directly at the UN General Assembly as a special envoy of the World Organization for future generations and cultures to promote its agenda, including the fight against poverty, inequality, injustice and climate change. I attended the event.

($ 1 = 1,179.6200 won)
