According to Rolling Stone, BTS will have an interview with Jimmy Fallon followed by a performance of a new, never before heard song from their upcoming album MAP OF THE SOUL: 7.
BTS and Jimmy Fallon will also take a tour of New York’s iconic landmarks during the show. This includes a trip to Katz’s Delicatessen, a popular New York restaurant.
We wanted to do something special for BTS and, at the same time, celebrate New York City. BTS really knocked it out of the park. You’re not going to believe how big and fun their performance is — they took over Grand Central Terminal.

According to Gavin Purchell, showrunner for The Tonight Show, the production team is going all out to make this BTS episode a very special one.
In terms of the production side, this [episode] was a pretty heavy lift. I can’t tell you how many people went into the making of this — it was the entire staff rallying together to make this really cool show. And on the BTS side, it was amazing to see how they rallied and how hard they worked. That’s something their fans know, but not only are they incredibly talented, they’re also so hardworking and humble.
