The crowd swarmed the Wembley Stadium waiting for their beloved septet to make an appearance. Over 60,000 ‘ARMIES’, dub name of BTS fanboys and girls, cheered as the boys made a headline in the Wembley Stadium.
It was the same stage where Queen made the legendary chant ‘ay oh’ followed by 72,000 fans.
BTS, or Bangtan Boys, was the first Korean boyband ever to step in the stadium with sold-out tickets for the two-night performances. What made this achievement incredible was the fact that the boyband had just done another smaller concert with 20,000 attendees in O2 Arena in London eight months ago.
Honoring Freddy Mercury
While the group might have been Korean-based, it didn’t reduce their knowledge of one of the most legendary musician of all time. Bohemian Rhapsody swept across the world, educating people, if they haven’t known of him, of the best music of Queen ever.
The boyband who grew up listening to Live Aid had to show their appreciation towards the venue and Freddie Mercury.
“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,” said RM.
“So the UK was like the big, big wall to me. But tonight we, and you guys, just broke the wall.”
BTS made it to the top chart of UK’s album with Map Of The Soul: Persona which was tuned in during Saturday Night Live and BGT (Britain’s Got Talent).
