It was a "Spring Day" on a Thanksgiving weekend as ARMY and BTS were finally reunited face-to-face at BTS' first in-person concert in two years.
Saturday at Los Angeles' SoFi Stadium marked the first day of the Permission to Dance on Stage tour.
"They haven't performed in two years, with the live audience because of COVID and pandemic and everything. So we're very very excited."
I'm really excited for them because I know that they have been having a lot of difficulties and I'm excited that they get the chance to finally meet Army again. And I"m really excited to be able to see them for the first time.
With performances in front of 50-thousand people per night, the tour is planned to run for four nights in total here but fans that couldn't get hold of a ticket also showed up to celebrate outside no need for "Permission to Dance" here.
Regardless of age, background, or country of origin fans spread their love for the group like "Butter".
It was reported that some 8-thousand dedicated fans even flew in from South Korea to attend the event.
"I had to come because it's the first concert in two years, so I took days off from work."
Outside the stadium fans waited in lines for hours to pick up merchandize.
To enter the stadium they had to present proof of vaccination or a negative PCR test taken within the past three days making the wait to enter even longer.
This tour signals K-Pop's return to the stage as "Life Goes On" finally after these large concerts were halted around the globe.
Similar "Dynamite" performances are also in the pipeline for K-Pop groups such as Monsta X and Twice as they plan to host in-person shows around the world in the coming months.
