‘No security to guide anyone’, says Twitter
BTS Army erupted with joy after BTS made their official comeback on the stage. Many spoke about their performance on ‘Black Swan’ but also raised their issues with the security. “I’m so glad we got in. It was a mess. There was no security to help guide anyone @SoFiStadium do better omg”, said one user as another got furious and added, “The f**king security is literally non existent at this point.”
One user stated, “I understand the BTS concert is your first big concert, but please, please take notes and correct what happened today. Maybe start letting fans in earlier or have more security at the gates to speed up the process. I'm just sayin.” Another posted, “Gate 7 at sofi stadium.. Literally a mob outside the stadium, Delay in concert, and some guards not checking vaccine card and tickets. There are also some xenophobic security.” Meanwhile, one shared, “Y’all I’m literally scared right now at sofi stadium. I came tonight to get mercy before my show tomorrow and it’s a mess with security. If you have gate 8 tomorrow good luck y’all.” And, the next one concluded, “Why they letting people in without checking that’s hella unsafe idc if there is a lot of people if I was security I would be checking everything.”
