Riyadh Welcomes BTS To The City By Lighting Up Purple

Riyadh is following in the tradition of lighting up purple for BTS.

The city of Riyadh has a warm welcome message for BTS: “I Purple You”!


On October 10, BTS received a royal welcome when they arrived in Saudi Arabia. Seven cars (one for each member), a security team, and crowds of adoring fans were waiting to receive BTS.


The city is showing its ARMY colors by following in the tradition of London, New York, and other major cities BTS had visited. They’re lighting up purple!


Local fans are snapping photos and taking videos of this beautiful welcome to share with fellow fans.


The Saudi American Public Relation Affairs Committee has also shared photos of the purple city.


BTS will hold their Speak Yourself concert on October 11 at King Fahd International Stadium.
