Last night, the world biggest boy group BTS kicked off their highly-anticipated encore stadium tour LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF with the first of two sold-out shows at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, California, playing to a crowd of 60,000 ARMYs.
In typical BTS fashion, the show consisted of high energy, slick and precise choreography and bursting with personality from the seven members. Filled with songs from their latest release Map of the Soul: Persona, which landed them their third Number One album on the Billboard 200 and their first in the UK Official Charts, their Love Yourself trilogy, and throwbacks to their Most Beautiful Moment in Life/Wings albums also the setlist caters to every inch of BTS’ musical diversity.
During the concert, the group also debuted their exclusive Dior outfits created by designer Kim Jones. These outfits mark Jones’ first time collaborating with a pop group and can be seen below.
