Are you excited for one of the biggest ever K-Pop concert to happen in Singapore? With the BTS World Tour ‘Love Yourself’ in Singapore being the first ever Korean concert to take place at the National Stadium (with a total capacity of 55,000), check out what other feats this concert will bring about, as well as some interesting facts for the Singapore leg of the concert!
1. Biggest number of standing pens for a K-Pop Concert
For this concert alone, there is a whopping number of ten standing pens – with the higher priced $348 CAT 1 tickets, and CAT 2 $268 tickets which will still give you quite a decent view for the extended stages. Have you decided to go for the left or the right pens, depending on the position where your bias will usually appear at?
2. Ticket Sales
Ticket sales will go on several channels, with one of them being at the box office. Typically, tickets for events happening at Singapore Sports Hub (Singapore Indoor Stadium/ National Stadium) will be sold at the Sports Hub Tix Box Office at Singapore Indoor Stadium, but this time round, in lieu of the forecasted huge crowds, ticket sales has been moved to the Sports Hub Tix Box Office at Kallang Wave Mall. Hopefully, more counters = faster ticket purchase process!
The other time that this box office was opened for ticket sales day was during Coldplay’s concert, where their 2-day concert at National Stadium was completely full house – and the queue was no joke!
3. ARMY Bomb
ARMY is used to calling the BTS official lightstick ARMY Bomb – but do be careful of using this term at the concert venue! Security personnel is very sensitive to the term ‘bomb’ especially at crowded venues like this. We certainly do hope that all the staff and security will be informed about this term and not to be alarmed by it, or it’ll definitely cause some inconvenience on the concert day.
On a side note, the organiser’s FAQ did mention about the possibility of lightstick synchronisation – so better get your official merch ready on 19 January to create a beautiful purple ocean! 보라해!
