If social isolation has been starting to drive you crazy, fret no more. On April 10, Big Hit Entertainment announced that BTS will be streaming an online concert throughout next weekend!
The online concert weekend event is titled BANG BANG CON, which appears to be a cute play on words. The first “Bang” stands for Bangtan Sonyeondan, the Korean name for BTS. The second “Bang” likely refers to the Korean word for “room”. Lastly, “Con” stands for concert, summing up the whole premise—a BTS concert from the comfort of your room.
Over the course of the weekend, BTS’s YouTube channel BangtanTV will be airing a whopping eight concerts spanning the past 6 years. The first concert airing on Saturday is 2015 BTS Live – The Most Beautiful Moment in Life On Stage.
The second concert airing on Saturday is 2016 BTS Live – The Most Beautiful Moment in Life On Stage: Epilogue.
The third concert airing on Saturday is 2014 BTS Live Trilogy – Episode II: The Red Bullet.
The final concert airing on Saturday is BTS 3rd Muster.
Then, you’ll get to do it all again with 4 more concerts on Sunday. The first concert airing on Sunday is 2017 BTS Live Trilogy – Episode III: The Wings Tour in Seoul.
The second concert airing on Sunday is 2017 BTS Live Trilogy –Episode III: The Wings Tour – The Final.
The third concert airing on Sunday is BTS 4th Muster.
And the final concert of the weekend is BTS World Tour: Love Yourself in Seoul.
If BTS will be streaming the DVD versions of these concerts back to back without any extra footage, ARMYs can expect a staggering 12 hours of BTS concerts.
The concert weekend will be streaming from 12PM KST on Saturday April 18 and from 12PM KST on Sunday April 18. Best of all, it’s free, so don’t forget to tune in!
