Why paint the town red when you could paint it purple? Global superstars BTS are bringing their Permission To Dance tour to Las Vegas, Nevada this April, and what they have in store goes beyond your average concert tour.
According to an announcement from WeVerse, the days surrounding the Bangtan Boys’ arrival in Nevada will have merchandise pop-ups (including one at Area15,) exclusive parties, photography exhibitions, themed cafe items, and even custom hotel rooms and songs on the Fountains of Bellagio.
The announcement is bittersweet to fans, also known as ARMY — many have already booked their sleeping arrangements, and thus will miss out on the Chimmy plastered hotel rooms that this announcement alludes to. These parties, merch pop-ups, and fountain shows also have limited information, leading those who have already booked flights to believe they could be arriving too late to participate in these exclusive events.
Despite nerves from the last-minute nature of the announcement, it is still being applauded by both attendees and ARMYs following along from home. The Permission To Dance tour already was somewhat of a “flex” in a running joke with ARMY as the dates follow the Grammys, where the boys are nominated. By selling out the stadium down the road from the Grammys, the BTS members are sending a subtle message to the US music industry to take their influence seriously. Combined with the newly announced events all over the iconic Las Vegas strip, the magnitude of these seven humble men from Korea is even more apparent.
The Permission To Dance shows will take place on April 8th, 9th, 15th, and 16th at Allegiant Stadium. While tickets sold out during ARMY Presale, verified tickets may be available here at an inflated price.
