Korean boy group BTS performs at Wembley Stadium in London on ​​June 1 (local time) as a leg of their European tour.

K-pop boy band BTS has proved why they are a world-class band by performing in London’s Wembley Stadium.

BTS had a historic performance at Wembley Stadium, which is a symbol of British pop culture and sports, on June 1 (local time). They opened up their Europe tour of LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF with a hip-hop song Dionysus.

The stadium was filled with 60,000 fans who shouted "Oh my God" in excitement and rolled their feet. Wembley is a place where Queen performed as shown in the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It is not accessible for music bands without global popularity.

RM, leader of the seven-member boy band, opened the show by saying, with a strong British accent, "It is a beautiful night. We welcome you to our show." When Jin imitated him in a similar tone, V joked, "Jin's British accent is not bad at all." The group performed 24 songs, including two solo songs of the members, "Boy with Luv", "Dope," “Bapsae,” "Fire,” "Idol," and "Fake Love," for two hours and 40 minutes.

The venue was lighted up by waves of “Army Bomb,” which is the official BTS fan light stick. Fans from all over Europe, including the U.K., Lithuania, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Germany, danced to the songs and followed the band’s choreography. BTS held one more concert in the same place on June 2.
