Now, ARMYs can grab their ARMY Bombs and relish BTS concerts at the comfort of their own homes.
On April 9, BTS officially announced their upcoming online streaming concert series dating back as far as 2014 called “BANG BANG CON” that will happen on April 18 and 19, both at 12 PM KST.
BANG BANG CON will be available for all fans around the globe. This is BTS’s way of being with their fans who are staying at home due to the mass quarantine and social distance mandates.
The concerts included on the first day of BANG BANG CON are ‘BTS 2014 Live Trilogy: Episode II The Red Bullet (2014 Memories)’, ‘2015 BTS Live On Stage’, ‘2016 BTS Live On Stage: Epilogue’, and ‘BTS 3rd Muster’. For April 19, the concerts are ‘2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III The Wings Tour in Seoul’, ‘BTS World Tour ‘Love Yourself’ Seoul’, and ‘BTS 4th Muster’.
BTS hopes that through the online streaming concert series, ARMYs will be able to “spend a couple of spring days, comfy at home with BANG BANG CON.” The concert will air on BTS’s official YouTube channel, BANGTANTV. BTS announced the online streaming concert series days after announcing the rescheduling of their upcoming North American tour due to the pandemic.
The name BANG BANG CON is a play on words. The first BANG comes from Bangtan Sonyeondan, the second BANG is the Korean word for room, while CON means concert.
All in all, BTS will be showing 12 hours’ worth of concert content to ARMYs. What a great way to stay sane during the quarantine!
Take note, these concerts have been available for purchase before the COVID-19 pandemic, but now it will be aired for free on April 18 and 19! Not only that, but ARMYs can also connect their ARMY Bombs through Weverse which can be synced in using Bluetooth. Doing so will make the ARMY Bomb’s change colors to the beat of the song as if ARMYs are at an actual stadium.
ARMYs all over the world are excited to attend BANG BANG CON, even though it’s only online. Several ARMYs created their own versions of BANG BANG CON posters and tickets and posted it on Twitter.
