BTS is now back and about to dominate the concert scene. Aside from the group's own in-person concerts in Los Angeles later this year, they will also perform at the "2021 Jingle Ball Tour."
iHeartRadio officially announced on its Twitter page BTS's inclusion to its list of performers for the "2021 Jingle Ball Tour" on Dec. 3. Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook will be performing their hit English singles "Dynamite" and "Butter."
This year, the special event will run from Nov. 30 to Dec.19 in different cities across the U.S., per AllKpop. Fans in Dallas, L.A., Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Miami and more can personally witness this event.
iHeartRadio will host the concert, just like what it does every year. So, aside from the K-pop idols, other world-renowned artists that will perform at the show are Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat and Lil Nas X.
The Kid Laroi will also join the fun, along with Saweetie and Black Eyed Peas. In every city they go, there will be a new lineup of performers.
Meanwhile, this will not be the first time that BTS will grace the event. To recall, they also participated at the "2019 Jingle Ball Tour" and the "2020 iHeartRadio Music Festival," which was only an online event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Korean Joongang Daily noted.
Aside from this, the boys will also be holding an in-person concert for the first time in two years after the global health crisis began. Titled "BTS Permission to Dance on Stage-LA," it will be held on Nov. 27 and 28 and Dec. 1 and 2 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
Manila Bulletin cited the concert tickets are already sold out as early as Oct. 10. With that said, ticket scalping is now rampant and the prices can go as high as $50,000.
Originally, the BTS concert tickets are only priced at $60 to $450, a far cry from the ticket resale. The tickets started to be available on Ticketmaster on Oct. 5 for VIP buyers, while the regular purchase began on Oct. 6.
Tickets for BTS Global Official Fanclub were made available on Oct. 7, while the general fan presale was on Oct. 8. However, the Oct. 9 general public onsale was alreay canceled after the tickets were quickly sold out.
The venue only has 275 luxury suites with 70,000 seating capacity that can be expanded to 100,000. Anyhow, fans who wish to see BTS performing live have to be fully vaccinated or show a negative COVID-19 test result taken 72 hours before the concert date.
