At this rate, shouldn’t it be recorded as a “history” rather than just a major event?
BTS sold 410,000 tickets for concerts in the U.S., Britain and France on the first day, and even made a whole new record of “setting up additional performances right on the ticket-selling day”.
In the evening of March 1st (KST), ticket for the concert at London’s Wembley Stadium were sold out and an additional performance was announced immediately on March 2nd in the afternoon. Stade de France near Paris, France, which closed at the same time, also officially announced the concert’s extension on its official Twitter page on March 2nd.
In the U.S., L.A., Chicago and New Jersey, where BTS‘s World Tour is scheduled to take place, are the same. These cities sold out immediately after opening their tickets through the local reservation site Live Nation on March 2nd (KST), and they posted a promise on March 3rd to perform one more day.
Five cities including the U.S., the U.K., and France offered 410,000 tickets to their fans before the extension night was announced.
In particular, Britain’s Wembley Stadium, dubbed as a dream stage for global pop stars, has 90,000 seats, France’s Stade de France 80,000 seats, LA’s Rose Ball Stadium has 93,000 seats, Chicago’s Soldier Field has 62,000 seats, and MetLife Stadium in New Jersey has 83,000 seats.
It is estimated that only five cities in the U.S., Britain, and France attract 820,000 viewers, including the newly-added extension night. If tickets to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Shizuoka, Osaka and Shizuoka, Japan, are added to the list, the number will increase further. BTS can invite 1.07 million viewers and estimated sales of 108.2 billion won.
