Earlier BTS concerts
BTS was forced to cancel their world tour in 2020 due to the pandemic and they ended up doing a few online live concerts. It was going to be a grand tour for them as it involved 40 concerts.
Though live performances and concerts remained quite a low-key affair in most countries, the award-winning artistes staged their first in-person performance in Los Angeles in November 2021.
Recently Kim Taehyung aka V tested Covid-19 positive while Park Jimin, who also tested positive, underwent appendix surgery in January 2022.
The Grammy Award nominated K-pop boy band comprises seven members — RM, Jin, SUGA, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jung Kook, who have won over the world with their peppy music, synchronised dance moves, inspiring lyrics, style, humanitarian causes and message for the youth to believe in themselves.
