Well, we dont get BTS touring in US often. I am glad their tickets are selling so well.

I have bought my tickets to bring my son for his first concert experience....Looking forward to their Europe tour.

Funny how people are hating on BTS and they don't wanna look at other peoples options and just want to look at the negative things to bring ARMY and BTS down and they act like other pop groups aren't being appreciated when they are and they act like BTS hasn't work their asses off for the past 7 years to get were they are now and that other groups got them here when they didn't. I mean yeah Kpop was popular before BTS got in the picture but it doesn't mean you can compare them to other groups. I mean its kinda annoying when us ARMY have to constantly defend them just because BTS is doing a little bit better than other peoples bias groups.

just saying don't @ me tho
