The Permission to Dance concert of the successful South Korean band, BTS, in Las Vegas, ended full of bittersweet moments.
At the end of the concert, the septet, made up of members Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook, surprised ARMYs with a special announcement about the release of their new album.
A short video was played with a montage of the members in black and white, with the voice of the bandleader RM saying, “We’re bulletproof.”
Then the screen goes black and a date appears: June 10, 2022, leaving the stadium in cheers. Following the original teaser, the band posted the video of the show on Twitter, while label Big Hit Music took to the band’s fan community platform Weverse to confirm the new album.
“This is blockbuster music. BTS will be coming back with another new album on June 10, 2022. Details about the new album will be provided in a separate notice at a later date.”
BTS made appearances at both the Grammys and the Oscars earlier this month, emphasizing their growing popularity in the mainstream.
