South Korean artist group, BTS, performed four sold-out nights in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on April 8-9 and 15-16.

Before the concert started, the group’s music videos played on two big screens where fans would sing along together and get even more hyped for the concert. You could see fans of all ages dressed in absolutely stunning outfits, enjoying their time around the stadium whether they were waiting in merch lines, grabbing food or taking pictures.

As the concert started, an opening video played that had fans riled up as they came out to perform their hit single “On.” Fireworks went off, and fans raised their lightsticks while screaming as the cage opened to let out the septet and their amazing backup dancers.

The group went along to play their older, fan-favorite songs we’ve been waiting for. From their song “DNA” to the “Boy With Luv,” BTS performed a spectacular lineup of songs.

One of my favorite parts about the concert was seeing all the flashing lightsticks being waved around. I had the opportunity to go to two shows.

On the first day, I got an amazing eagle view of all the synced lightsticks, and it made the concert light up so bright that I just stared in awe.

On the last day, I was near the stage, so I could see the members up close. During their song “Telepathy,” the boys rode on moving carts to interact with more fans who were in the 100s sections.

Another amazing part of the show is the group’s moment where they take a break from their rigorous performances and talk to their fans and express their feelings. The words that they give out are truly inspiring, and I truly admire how articulate they are, whether they’re talking in English or Korean.
Songs such as “Outro: Wings” and “Silver Spoon” had me jumping and screaming like a crazy person.

Those two songs are some of my favorites, so being able to see them performed live was such a fulfilling moment for me. I even lost my voice on both days that I attended.

“One thing is for sure, we never want to take all this love for granted,” said RM. “Thank you so much for coming. We love you. And you know we’re BTS, you’re army. We’re each other’s everything. We’re now at the end of the tour in Vegas and end of PTD. The show might be over, but our light will stay going forever. We share that love support, comfort, and energy I want to share that with you one last time.”

It was great to see BTS perform live as I’ve always wanted to go to a concert. Since the pandemic, I’ve only been able to watch their concerts online. While both online and offline concerts were extremely fun, getting to experience the lightstick wave, seeing the members in person, and enjoying their music with other fans is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I felt genuinely happy and did not worry about a single thing. The concert was everything I wanted and more. It completely fulfilled all my expectations as I always knew BTS concerts were a blast.

From the incredible back up dancers to the impressive production of the show, and of course BTS, I had possibly the greatest two nights of my life. It was an experience that I will never forget. A huge thank you to all seven members for putting on an amazing four nights and making Vegas beam with purple lights. I am truly thankful for the experience.
