BTS has announced they’ll be having their first in-person concerts for the first time in two years.

The K-pop band is bringing their upcoming online concert Permission To Dance on Stage, to Los Angeles, California later this year. They’ll be performing at SoFi Stadium on November 27 and December 1 and 2.

This marks their first in-person concert since 2019’s Love Yourself: Speak Yourself tour.

Ticket prices haven’t been announced yet, but concert organizer Live Nation has pre-sale registration for the concerts available now through October 2 and presale starts on October 5.

“Holding an in=person concert in the midst of COVID-19 is not easy”, but decided on the US after “taking the national and regional health regulations and circumstances into consideration,” Big Hit Music said on Weverse.

“It is [with] our deepest regret that we are unable to hold more concerts in more areas,” they added. “We will do our best to put on additional concerts for not only Korean fans but fans from all around the world who have been patiently waiting for a long time.”

The online version of Permission To Dance On Stage is BTS’ first online concert of 2021. In June this year, the band held the MUSTER SOWOOZOO fan meeting, which has over 1.3 million concurrent viewers worldwide.

BTS and Coldplay recently shared their new documentary Inside My Universe and new versions of “My Universe”.
