BTS' SEOUL CONCERTS SOLD OUT BEFORE BEING SOLD PUBLICLY
All tickets for K-pop supergroup BTS' upcoming Seoul concerts have sold out even before being publicly on sale, as well as those for the group's Las Vegas shows, sources in the music industry said Friday.
According to sources, tickets for all three "Permission To Dance On Stage - Seoul" concerts sold out within hours of going on sale exclusively to members of BTS's fan base ARMY at 8 p.m. the previous day, prior to a public sale.
The concerts on March 10, 12, and 13 will be the septet's first in-person appearances in Seoul in two and a half years.
The group's management company, Big Hit Music, did not disclose the number of available seats for the shows. However, the total number is expected to be around 45,000, as the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism permitted the group to invite 15,000 spectators to each of its three concerts at a nearly 70,000-capacity outdoor stadium, in order to provide some physical separation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
