(BTS NEWS) BTS members Unable to Attend Upcoming MAMA2021 Event
Unfortunately, due to the current state of the pandemic, the members of BTS will be unable to attend the 2021 Mnet Asian Music Awards this December.
After a successful period performing/promoting in the US, the new COVID quarantine rules require the members of BTS to complete the mandatory 10-day quarantine once arriving back in South Korea.
- The new quarantine rules, put in place to combat the brand new omicron variant, states that, regardless of nationalities or vaccination status, all international travelers will be required to quarantine upon arriving in South Korea.
With the members scheduled to return to South Korea following their performance at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, the new mandatory quarantine will overlap with the MAMA ceremony, making the members unable to attend the ceremony.
- In 2020, in addition to attending, the members of BTS won eight awards, including the four Daesang awards (the most prestigious honors of the night).
(BTS NEWS) SoFi Success and Surprises
After two years unable to perform live in front of their loyal fans, BTS and ARMY were united finally at the SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles for four sold-out shows.
“I really wanted to say I missed you, and we know how hard things were for you, how thankful I am. In Korea, we didn’t have any fans and performed in front of the camera. I really shouldn’t feel this way, but the first time I saw you in two years, honestly it was a little awkward. I felt like I went back to seven years ago.
And I’m really moved that all of you’ve waited for us. I don’t think I did all I could for you guys for the past two years, so I’m really honored that you’ve waited for us.”Jimin of BTS
- With thousands of ecstatic fans, all waving their glittering ARMY Bomb light sticks, the stadium stunningly replicated the pre-pandemic magic of a BTS concert.
Throughout the two-hour set, the members performed 24 tracks including, the long-awaited performances of “ON,” “Dynamite,” and their summer track “Butter.”
The final performance surprised fans by featuring the beloved American rapper, musician, and performer Megan Thee Stallion who rapped to the remixed version of the chart-topping hit.
- In addition to Megan Thee Stallion, another surprise guest included American singer Halsey who joined the members on the second of December for a performance of their 2019 song “Boy with Luv.”
Unlike previous BTS shows, the 2021 concert excluded solo tracks, according to SUGA, “This PTD performance was a big challenge for all of us, as obviously we’re getting older. And let me tell you why we set this concert without solo songs. We’ve prepared everything, from the cue sheet to devices. We’ve been away for two years, and we wanted full attention on seven of us.”
Other tracks performed during the concert include Black Swan, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Life Goes On, Boy with Luv, and Idol, among many others, all performed with the stunning style, passion, and skill that have made BTS household names across the globe.
It was another great night! I hope you had a great time. It’s been so long, and it was nervous performing in front of all of you. I’ll be thinking about tonight a lot if I go home later. This is such a precious memory, and I will cherish it foreverJungkook of BTS
“We’ll continue to shoot in front of the camera, but I don’t need any of that. I want to come back here. I think I will go back with all your emotions and everything that I saw from ARMY. I think I’m going to have another concert tonight in my dreams.”V of BTS
“After Saturday’s show, I’d thought in my bed that I wouldn’t be able to make it on Sunday as I felt so tired. But some power that I didn’t even know popped up and moved my body. You guys are magic and my miracle. You guys are every good word in this world. I love you so much!”RM of BTS
