Seoul: Renowned K-pop group BTS has once again given merit to their name in history books with their latest accomplishment as band’s on-going ‘Permission To Dance On Stage in LA’ became the first ever concert to sell out all four shows at SoFi stadium.  

Christy Butcher, the Senior Vice President of SoFi Stadium, announced that the tickets for BTS's four-day LA concert, "Permission to Dance on Stage" have been sold out.

Christy also said, "We are very pleased to hold BTS' historical first concert in America since 2019 at SoFi Stadium."

Commenting on the same, Butcher stated that “It’s also the first time that the live concert and YouTube Theater livestream are taking place simultaneously”.

Butcher continued that while numerous artists have performed at SoFi Stadium in the past, BTS is the first and only act to sell out four concerts.

Besides being the first artist to achieve this milestone, BTS became first-ever Korean group to set the record for the most ticket sales among bands and artists who performed at the stadium.

The SoFi Stadium can accommodate 70,000 to 100,000 people. However, roughly 50,000 fans were only allowed to attend per event.

It is pertinent to mention here that this is the first time that BTS held concerts at SoFi Stadium yet they already set another world record.

In addition to the main show, band’s sold-out concerts will be broadcast live through YouTube Theatre in Inglewood, California, which will be called "LIVE PLAY."

The livestream has been arranged for the fans who were unable to secure tickets for the live concert.

The "LIVE PLAY" will also comprise a series of programs including a Landmark Photo Zone and Photo Card Random Box where fans can participate in a giveaway to obtain BTS photocards.

Now that the November segment of their ‘Permission to Dance on stage’ concert is over, fans are eagerly awaiting their December 1 and 2 shows that are no doubt bound to be equally mesmerizing.
