BTS earns $75 million from ‘PTD On Stage’ 2022 concerts, fans say 'jaw just dropped'
Since late 2021, ARMY have been well-fed as BTS is on a roll, announcing concerts after concerts. In November 2021, BTS made history by becoming the first act to have four sold-out concerts at SoFi stadium in LA which grossed over $33 million dollars. It also happened to be the highest box-office gross in 18 years in the USA. And now, even though we are just six months into 2022, the ‘Permission To Dance - On Stage’ concert series continues to make records.
On June 8, it was revealed that BTS had earned over $75 million from their offline ‘PTD On Stage’ concerts held in 2022. There were a total of 11 performances, four in LA, three in Seoul, and four in Las Vegas. According to Billboard, a total of 458k people attended the concerts. BTS also had the fourth-highest gross following Bad Bunny, who had 37 performances, Elton John, who had 40, and Genesis, who had 35 performances in 2022.

BTS earn $75 million with just seven concerts in 2022
The fact that BTS made the list with just seven concerts in 2022 -- in Seoul and Las Vegas, makes the milestone even more impressive. This is also the first time in history that BTS, along with Bad Bunny, are the only two non-English acts to be in the top 4 of Billboard's mid-year highest-grossing tours. 200k fans had attended BTS’ ‘PTD On Stage’ concerts in Las Vegas, which earned over $35 million. This has also led them to top Billboard’s ‘Top Tour’ and ‘Top Box Score’ charts in April.
These are not the only achievements accumulated by BTS’ ‘PTD On Stage’ concert series. Apart from earning $75 million in 2022, their one-day live-streaming concert in Seoul became the highest-grossing worldwide event-cinema release in history. Over 1.4 million people worldwide watched their concert in theatres apart from the 45k fans who attended the concert in Seoul. With the remaining two days also being live-streamed online, the boy group earned a total of $82 million from Seoul’s hybrid (offline and online) edition. Economists also shared that the $32 million gross from BTS’ four-day Las Vegas concerts had a ripple effect on USA and South Korea’s economies, enabling their entertainment and tourism industries to recover from the pandemic.
