Earlier this month, it was announced that k-pop supergroup BTS would be their next three shows in March at the Seoul Olympic Stadium. These shows will have a full live audience, making it their first proper live performance on their home turf in over two years. These shows are part of the group’s ongoing Permission to Dance tour.
While you may expect a k-pop group’s world tour to conclude back on their home soil, it seems BTS isn’t quite finished performing for the moment just yet. This morning, it was announced that the Permission to Dance tour has been extended, and the group’s next stint will be at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. This stop will include four shows all in early-to-mid April. While these shows will also have live audiences, those who can’t show up in person will still be able to watch the event through a live feed at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The last show on April 16 will also be livestreamed online.

BTS previously rocked the west coast last fall during their stint at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. That run of shows brought in ticket sales of over $33.3 million with 214,000 tickets sold. That’s a record-breaking run for shows performed at a single venue, beating out the record established by Roger Waters in 2012 at Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
