LOS ANGELES·SEOUL, Nov. 29 (Yonhap) -- Super band BTS has set another world record with their recent offline concert in 2 years in Los Angeles, America.

Christy Butcher, senior vice president of SoFi Stadium in charge of programming management and reservations, said, “We are very pleased to hold BTS’ historical first concert in America since 2019 at SoFi Stadium.”

“BTS is the first in SoFi Stadium’s history to have sold out tickets for all their 4 concerts. The concert has marked the most ticket sales among bands or artists who performed at the stadium,” said Christy Butcher.

The stadium in Inglewood, California opened up in 2020.

It is usually used as a home stand for two American football teams, Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. But when there are large-scale performances or events the stadium can accommodate about 70,000 and up to 100,000 people.

The super band’s “Permission To Dance On Stage – LA” concert accepts about 50,000 audiences for each night.

Due to a large LED screen at the back of the stage, the overall space reduced to some extent. But the concert holders is said to have managed to secure as many seats as possible for the fans.

Also at YouTube Theater of 6,400 seats nearby, people can enjoy the concert as well through a large screen.

“This is also the first event to perform live (at SoFi Stadium) and broadcast live through at YouTube Theater,” explained Christy Butcher.

The stadium has also found their one millionth admission through BTS’ concert.

“This Saturday (Nov. 27) at the BTS concert, we are issuing our 1 Millionth ticket to enthusiastic BTS superfan, Harrison,” said the stadium through its official Twitter page on the 24th.

Harrison, a 14-year-old boy with Down Syndrome, has been sweeping for part-time and has been saving up his pocket money to buy a ticket for BTS’ concert but found that they were already sold out. Hearing such news, SoFi Stadium gifted him with a special VIP ticket.

Harrison was able to rock at BTS’ concert live on the 27th (U.S time).

Before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the superband was flying around the globe to meet the fans in the world.

They landed in 24 cities and performed 62 times during the 1-year and 2-months tour concert, “LOVE YOURSELF:SPEAK YOURSELF” from 2018 August to 2019 October.

The number of fans they have met during the concert is up to about 2.06 million.
