BTS, 2019 BBMAs’ Top Group, have started their Love Yourself; Speak Yourself Tour on May 4, to an audience of around 65K at the Rose Bowl in California. And already, new ARMYs are being initiated into the powerful fandom.
As RM said during BTS’ acceptance at the Billboards, it’s because of the BTS and ARMY power.
The legendary group has been called various names:
The Biggest Boy Band in the Planet
The Legendary Boys
The Biggest Boy Band in the World
The Kings of K-Pop
The Most Famous K-Pop Artist
The Most Popular Group
Top Social Artist
And many more.
Pete Wilgoren has attended a BTS concert for the first time in Rose Bowl and in his post: My Introduction To BTS, he said they were showmen. He shared videos through his tweets to the whole world, as ARMYs in their homes share the joy of being in a BTS concert.
He also wrote:
“In between the songs, music videos played, they put up the tour name “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself”. And it felt like that really WAS the message. The group from South Korea has been traveling the world, and building their fanbase army, on a mission of positivity.
I agree with him that they are showmen. But I have also a description that I would want to use – Total Performers!
Yes, TOTAL PERFORMERS. From the breathtaking sets on stage, to the perfectly choreographed dances, to the angelic voices, to the amazing raps, to the heart-warming spontaneity, to the incredible group-fan interactions, and to the spectacular fireworks, everything comes together for a phenomenal BTS show.
They are TOTAL PERFORMERS!
Everyone went home feeling happy – including the boys – and that is all that matters.
Here are some tweets that would clearly describe how fans felt:
I was blown away by how many grown adults were there! It definitely appeals to everyone! https://t.co/bts7Gn1BhT

Fun fact: @BTS_twt concert attendees are exceptionally diverse. Sure there are teenage girls but there are adults, men and boys across all ages & ethnicities. Sitting next to me were two elderly grandmas who arrived together. They danced, took photos and even cried. So beautiful

This tweet clearly describes what I feel as well.
It's clear BTS don't just 'perform' concerts they don't just 'sing' songs. They curate experiences, facilitate healing and inspire emotion. They always have several layers to their work. Perhaps that's why it takes a whole ARMY weeks to fully process an experience like today 🤧

This tweet sums it up so beautifully!
The #SpeakYourselfTour set is a love letter to ARMY – to all ARMYs, whether old or new.
Over the course of 3 hours, @BTS_twt uses the past and present of their music to unite everyone within the constellation of their story, honor the pain and triumph, and celebrate it all. pic.twitter.com/eDe1X4Mfe8

And here are some videos to introduce you to the worldwide superstars – that is BTS.
Jungkook, even ‘flew’ around the stage in Euphoria.
Here’s a video taken by a drone that showed awesome aerial views of ARMY enjoying the BTS concert!
The thunderous applause from Rose Bowl at the end of the BTS concert is proof that BTS is now dominating the US and the whole world.
