BTS Rides New York Subway on 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,' Performs in Grand Central Terminal

K-pop royalty BTS will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on February 24. In addition to performing, they will take the New York City subway and go on a tour of the city's most iconic spots while answering questions from fans, the show confirmed.

The special episode, which has been pre-recorded and will air on February 24, sees the band being interviewed while riding the subway, answering a selection of questions submitted to the show on social media using the hashtag #FallonAsksBTS. They will also visit various city landmarks, such as the legendary Katz's Delicatessen, as well as "take over Grand Central Terminal," Fallon said in a statement.

"We wanted to do something special for BTS and, at the same time, celebrate New York City. BTS really knocked it out of the park. You're not going to believe how big and fun their performance is," he said.

The show is reportedly one of the most high-production episodes the show has ever released, according to Gavin Purcell, the showrunner for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

"In terms of the production side, this [episode] was a pretty heavy lift. I can't tell you how many people went into the making of this—it was the entire staff rallying together to make this really cool show," Purcell told Rolling Stone.

"And on the BTS side, it was amazing to see how they rallied and how hard they worked. That's something their fans know, but not only are they incredibly talented, they're also so hardworking and humble," he added.

The band will reportedly be performing a new song on the show, according to Rolling Stone.

The K-pop act has been doing the rounds on various major U.S. television and radio programs following a first-ever performance at the 2020 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles last month, which saw the band become the first Korean act to perform at the show.

Last month, BTS also appeared on James Corden's The Late Late Show in LA where they performed latest single "Black Swan" for the first time.

They also dropped by the iHeartRadio studio for a live Q&A with the radio show, talking about the Grammy Awards performance, the upcoming album and dream future collaborations, which included Brad Pitt.

The North American leg of the band's concert tour kicks in California on April 25 and continues on selected dates through June 6, where it concludes in Chicago.

The new BTS album Map of the Soul: 7 is out on February 21.
