BTS announce first online concert of 2021, fans hope special album rumors come true
It’s a good day to be an ARMY because we have a barrage of BTS content incoming. In the last 24 hours, we’ve had BTS being officiated as South Korea’s Special Envoys with their diplomatic passports and confirmation of the BTS x Coldplay collaboration. If that is not enough, the K-pop global group has something more in store. Fans will also be getting the first official online concert of the year and probably a special album.
On September 15, BTS’ label, BigHit Music released a statement regarding ‘Permission To Dance On Stage Concert’. They shared that BTS will be hosting a concert on Sunday, October 24 at 6:30 pm KST (5:30 am ET) which will be online and live-streamed. Additional information like ticket details will be released at a later date. And fans are overjoyed.

BTS announce online concert
A perk of releasing music is that along with an album, artists usually get to go on tours and perform tracks from their newly released album at concerts for their fans. But ever since the global pandemic, tours of several artists have been canceled. In fact, BTS officially announced last month that the world tour for ‘Map of the Soul’ had been canceled. Their last tour had been for ‘Love Yourself’ in 2018-2019. After that, they’ve released three studio albums, two EPs and one single album but haven’t had a chance to have tours for them which have had fans disheartened.
But with the introduction of Beyond Live and online concerts, BTS has also adapted to the new technology and has been having online concerts and performances for their fans. They tweaked their ‘Map of the Soul’ tour and had an online concert titled ‘Map of the Soul ON:E’ in October 2020. Then we had the online summer event ‘Muster Sowoozoo’ which was a two-day fan event to celebrate their eighth anniversary. And now we are getting another online concert for their latest releases ‘Permission to Dance’ and the ‘Butter’ CD.
Special album rumors
While the boys have performed ‘Permission to Dance’ and ‘Butter’ several times on TV and online, this will be their first online concert of the year and fans are excited. Additionally, ARMY can’t help but notice that there had been a rumor stating that we would get a concert in October and a special album in December. With the concert rumors being true, fans are now trusting the source and hoping that BTS will indeed release a special album for the end of the year.
'We just don't lose'
Fans couldn’t control their excitement as they trended ‘online concert’ and ‘special album’ on Twitter. ARMY made posts like, “BABE WAKE UP NEW ONLINE CONCERT ANNOUNCEMENT JUST DROPPED,” “Like honestly the last 24 hours ARMY has gotten Coldtan, Presidental EnvoyTan, and now Bangtan online concert announcement. The tannies keeping us well feed,” and “October is going to be such a special month we’ve got Jimin day, in the soop, an online concert to look forward to… purple bloods we just don’t lose.”
Fans were also hyped about the possibility of a new album as they tweeted, “Special album better be true too my lifes at stake here,” and “What if the special album in december will be related to holidays coz it's a Christmas season and they've never done this before so…” Another fan wondered about the announcement date, “Bet the special album announcement after Mama maybe hngggggg.”
