BTS returned to the stage at KIIS FM’s Jingle Ball 2019, Presented by Capital One®, in Los Angeles at The Forum on Friday, December 6, marking their first major performance since management company BigHit Entertainment announced Jungkook, Suga, J-Hope, V, Jin, Jimin and RM would go on an extended break this past August.
The über popular K-pop band kicked off the annual concert, which is part of the national iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour Presented by Capital One®.
“We are the opening artist! Such an honor to preform here,” BTS told the sold-out crowd at The Forum after opening the show with “Mic Drop.” “We are on the same stage with legends — this is the best holiday ever!” they added, gushing it’s been a “great year” and now they can celebrate with their fans ahead of making 2020 an even better year.
The group also brought out Halsey onstage to perform their collaboration “Boy With Luv.”
Prior to hitting the stage, a selection of lucky fans were able to meet the popstars, who held a meet-and-greet backstage at The Forum. Two lucky fans in attendance at the Pre-Show Village won a chance into the meet-and-greet. Entrants had to be following KIIS FM on Twitter at @1027KIISFM, tweet a specific set of hashtags that were announced the morning of the event, and also on-site to collect the prize.
