How to Get Tickets to BTS Performance in 'Good Morning America's 2019 Summer Concert Series

If you've always wanted to see BTS perform for free, now's your chance. Good Morning America announced the lineup for its 11th annual Summer Concert Series on Friday. The superstar Korean pop group are slated to kick off the performances with a show on May 15.

Although all the concerts are free, fans will need tickets to gain entry into the BTS show. To request tickets, hopefuls will have to sign up on the GMA waitlist HERE. Concertgoers will be contacted by the GMA team if selected. All BTS lovers will need to do then is arrive at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield in New York City on the day of the show with their tickets and voila, they'll be granted entry into the festivities.

All the other shows scheduled in the summer concert series are free but first come, first serve until the venue reaches capacity. The lineup at Rumsey Playfield starts at 6 a.m. ET on each show date, and concerts are expected to begin each morning at 7 a.m. until 9 a.m. ET during GMA's live taping.

Other upcoming performers include Ellie Goulding on June 14, Adam Lambert on June 28, Pitbull on August 2 and Chance the Rapper on August 16.

BTS' opening performance comes on the heels of the group's third album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which released in late April. Within a week, the record topped Billboard's 200 chart, marking the band's third No. 1 album in the U.S. Both Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer, which arrived in 2018, topped Billboard charts upon their release.

Last year was quite a historical season for BTS. Not only did their albums top the charts but Love Yourself: Tear also marked the first K-Pop group to ever reach No. 1 on Billboard 200. BTS outdid themselves when they scored another No. 1 just months later with the second Love Yourself album.

When BTS first performed live on GMA back in September, the group credited their success to their legion of fans. "It's all because of [the Army]," band member RM said to GMA hosts Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan. "We just practice hard, made our music to the best [of our ability]. We can't pay [them] enough, but [the fans] send love and support and that's how it happened. It's all because of [the] Army."
