Thousand of fans gathered at Citi Field in New York to attend BTS’ (Bangtan Boys) final U.S. tour stop on Saturday night, October 6. The show marked the seven-piece group as the first Korean artist to perform a stadium show in the United States.
After a brief cautionary note from leader RM a.k.a. Rap Monster, BTS opened the Citi Field concert with their latest song “IDOL” before launching into other hits such as “DNA”, “Fake Love” and “Mic Drop”. Expressing their disbelief to be able to hold a stadium show, they said during the concert, “We couldn’t believe we finally came here to Citi Field. One of our dreams has come true.”
Besides performing as a group, the band treated fans to solo performances by each members. V belted out his solo song “Singularity”, while Jimin serenaded the audience with “Serendipity”. Jin, meanwhile, played a piano while delivering rendition of his power ballad “Epiphany”. Towards the end of the show, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook and V showcased their sweet harmony with “The Truth Untold” set before J-Hope, RM and Suga performed “Outro: Tear”.
It was time to say goodbye to the crowd, and Jimin was just as sad as them. He doubled over in tears, while RM saluted New York as “the place where the music that changed my life was first born” and reminded fans that they were witnessing “the first Korean musicians ever in a U.S. stadium.” He added, “It’s never intended, but it feels like I’m using you guys to love myself. Please use me.”
After wrapping up the North American leg of their “Love Yourself” tour, BTS is set to fly to London where they will perform at the O2 Arena on October 9 and 10. They will then head to other cities in Europe such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris.
