In just a few years, BTS has become one of the world's most famous boy bands by selling out stadiums, releasing countless chart-toppers, and having an army of loyal fans.
On Saturday, BTS added another feather to their cap as the band performed their maiden concert at England's Wembley Stadium, becoming the first South Korean group to headline the iconic venue. The band apparently sold out the stadium in just 90 minutes.
The seven-member band, which has been touring the world as part of the LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF tour, played a set of 24 songs to tens of thousands of fans, reports BBC.
As expected, they absolutely brought down the house. The group opened their set with a straight up hip-hop song Dionysus. Known for their dancing, singing and rapping, the K-pop sensation— comprising Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook-- and their backing dancers set the stage on fire.
During the encore, Jin led the crowd in a version of the Queen frontman's Ay Oh! chant.
"You guys always had the greatest artists, historically, in the music industry - The Beatles, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Adele. We don't even have to make a list. So the UK was like the big, big wall to me. But tonight we, and you guys, just broke the wall," added his band-mate Kim Nam-joon, who's known to fans as RM.
The group also performed their popular hits like Best of Me, Idol, Not Today, Euphoria and Epiphany.
Members of the BTS ARMY-- both in stadium and watching from home-- were quick to applaud the band's historic performance on social media and share photos and video from the memorable night.
