How to get BTS Suga’s concert tickets
Tickets for the concerts will reportedly go on sale to the general public on 3 March 2023. However, those with a BTS Army Membership will have first access on 1 March – via Ticketmaster.
On Valentine’s Day, Suga took to Weverse to clue fans in before the official announcement. “I can’t say much, but yes..let’s see each other at the concert. It’s late now so I’ll be going. Let’s see each other soon,” he said. This follows a video in December where the rapper was seen strutting in a hip-hop 101 class with a private instructor. “I’ve learned some basic hip-hop moves. I’ve suddenly got an interest in learning at the age of 30,” he shared with fans. “I’m taking all kinds of lessons now. I’ve started playing the keyboard again. I’m also taking guitar and dance and Japanese and English.”
It’s been a busy couple of months for BTS. Most recently, J-Hope and RM announced their respective solo albums while Jungkook wowed the world with his FIFA World Cup track Dreams. Jimin is also set to release his debut solo album in March. Meanwhile, Jin performed his single The Astronaut, with Coldplay in Argentina last October to much acclaim. Suga has released two mixtapes Agust D (2016) and D-2 (2020) which are expected to feature in his tracklist. For more information head here.
