BTS is BACK! After their management company BigHit Entertainment announced Jungkook, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jin, Jimin and RM would go on an extended break this past August, the "Mic Drop" artists are ready to return to the stage. BTS is set to perform at KIIS FM's Jingle Ball on December 6th...but if you're an ARMY member in Los Angeles you already knew that.
On Saturday September 17th the BTS Army used their sleuthing skills to figure out the band's Jingle Ball involvement before the lineup announcement was even teased - that's some dedication! The term "Jingle Ball" started trending on Twitter after a South Korean news report leaked the news that the "Boy With Luv" singers would be traveling stateside. The report obtained their information from "a plurality of music officials" and got everything correct except their performance date.
Recently, according to a plurality of music officials, BTS decided to participate in the stage of 'Jingle Ball', the biggest year-end show held by the famous US radio station [iHeartRadio].If the tour runs on a schedule similar to last year, it is likely to be in Los Angeles in November.
Finally the report can be confirmed! Artists joining the Steve Aoki collaborators on the 2019 lineup include Katy Perry, Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, Camila Cabello, Halsey, French Montana, Lizzo and Normani!
In August BigHit Entertainment revealed the band's intention to take a break via a public statement.
We would like to announce that for the first time since their debut, BTS will be going on an official and extended period of rest and relaxation...The period of rest will be an opportunity for the members of BTS, who have relentless[ly] driven themselves towards their goal since their debut, to recharge and prepare to present themselves anew as musicians and creators. This will also provide them with a chance to enjoy the ordinary lives of young people in their 20s, albeit briefly.
