BTS 'Permission To Dance On Stage' Concerts: SoFi L.A. Tour Dates and How to Get Tickets

Global K-pop group BTS have announced new concert dates for 2021, marking their first in-person shows in two years.

A limited run of concerts will be held at California's SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, as part of their "Permission To Dance On Stage - LA" tour.

The upcoming gigs will mark the first in-person concerts by BTS since their "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" tour in 2019.

Back in August, BTS cancelled their "Map Of The Soul" tour, which was postponed in April 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

When Is the New BTS Tour?

The concerts for the "Permission To Dance On Stage - LA" tour will be held on November 27 and 28, as well as December 1 and 2 this year.

How To Get Tickets for New BTS Tour

Tickets for the latest BTS tour will be distributed via Ticketmaster and will be available first to those who purchased tickets to the cancelled "Map Of The Soul" North America tour.

With high demand expected, fans are encouraged to get their Ticketmaster account verified through Verified Fan, which "will be critical to increasing your chances of getting tickets," the site advises.

While getting verified doesn't guarantee everyone will get a ticket, it helps ensure only fans are invited to buy tickets," the vendor explains.

Will There Be More BTS Tour Dates?

Big Hit Music, the management company of BTS, said in a statement on South Korea's Weverse platform that "holding an in-person concert in the midst of COVID-19 is not easy."

But they decided to hold these concerts in the U.S. after "taking the national and regional health regulations and circumstances into consideration."

The company added "it is [with] our deepest regret that we are unable to hold more concerts in more areas" at this time.

The statement said "we will do our best" to hold additional concerts for fans in South Korea and abroad who have been "patiently waiting for a long time."
