The wait is finally over: BTS will be performing 4 in-person concerts in Los Angeles, California — their first live shows in two years! The first day of ticketing is upon us, so here’s what we know so far.
This concert series will have four dates: November 27, November 28, December 1, and December 2. The November shows fall on a Saturday and a Sunday, making it your best bet if you have prior obligations on the weekdays. Meanwhile, the December dates are on a Wednesday and Thursday. Who knows what the group will be up to between the shows, though!
The shows will be held at the new SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. If you’re familiar with the area, you might recognize it since The Forum is right next to it! This stadium just opened in September 2020 and has a capacity of 70,000 — though it can be expanded to over 100,000. For comparison, BTS’s previous shows in LA were held at the Rose Bowl which has a capacity of 90,000.

There are multiple different ticket types for the event! Apart from the different seating levels, there is a Silver Soundcheck package and a Gold Soundcheck package.
According to ARMYs who were kind enough to share the ticket prices with other fans online, the tickets range from $60 to $275 before fees. But the Gold and Silver Soundcheck packages cost around $450 before fees!
The presale codes were emailed out last month to fans who had tickets to see BTS on their previously scheduled tour. They can only be used once and to buy four tickets, so choose wisely!
Those who had VIP tickets (soundcheck) got the earliest chance to get PTDOS tickets. On October 6, non-VIP ticket-buyers will be able to enter presale. October 7, fans with the “BTS GLOBAL OFFICIAL FANCLUB ARMY MEMBERSHIP” will get their shot. And on October 8, “Verified Fans” who register through Ticketmaster can enter presale. Lastly, general sale opens on October 9!

Though thousands of people were in the online queues to get tickets, don’t worry! There’s plenty of room for tons more ARMYs to get their tickets — though soundcheck and barricade seats sell out super fast. Once the presale is over, any remaining tickets will be put up for general sale.
