BTS LA Concert/Photo=Big Hit
It was reported that the four-day face-to-face concert held by the group BTS in Los Angeles, USA earned 39.4 billion won from ticket sales alone.
On the 4th (local time), US Billboard reported that BTS earned $33.3 million (about 39.3 billion won) from four performances a year at Sofa Stadium in LA. This is the 6th largest concert ticket revenue ever, and the biggest box office record in 9 years.
According to the ‘Billboard Box Score’, which counts ticket sales for performances, BTS sold 214,000 tickets through the 4th performance of ‘Permission to Dance on Stage’. Every performance was sold out.
It is the biggest performance in a single venue since Pink Floyd’s Floyd’s Roger Waters made $38 million ($44.95 billion) in nine concerts in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2012.
Based on the concerts held in the United States alone, it is the largest record in 18 years, and the largest ever performed in California.

The five performances, which had more box office profits than BTS, had a longer performance period than the 4th, and some say that the profits of this performance are “best in history.”
Billboard said, “Considering that the total number of concerts performed by the 1st to 5th artists of all time was at least twice that of BTS’ 4th concert, this achievement is surprising.”
Through this LA concert, BTS also joined the box score ’30 Million Dollar Club’. There are only six existing $30 million club artists, including U2 and Grateful Dead. BTS is the first non-English speaking artist to surpass $30 million in box score through a single concert.
BTS held the concert for 4 days, selling goods as well as online broadcasting. If this is included, it is expected that profits will be higher.
Billboard said, “A K-pop boy band recorded the largest Billboard performance in nearly 10 years.” “BTS sold 2 million tickets through their 60 concerts, and sold $256.9 million (303.91 billion won). ),” he said.
