In a recent update (9 November) from the Los Angeles government, attendees of PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE IN LA must present full proof of vaccination before entering the concert venue or a recent negative COVID-19 test result.
"Attendees of outdoor events with 5,000 or more people also will have to show proof of vaccination or that they’ve recently tested negative for the coronavirus," Los Angeles Times detailed.
The news comes after the official cancellation of the Map of the Soul Tour which was supposed to kick off in 2020 but was postponed and eventually cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
In a statement, BTS shares: "This is an especially valuable event that will be held under difficult circumstances which is why we will do our very best to bring you an all-new, phenomenal concert, while keeping the health of the artists and fans our top priority."
In an announcement earlier this year, concert producers LiveNation revealed that they will require artists, crew, and attendees to be fully vaccinated or to present a negative test for live events beginning 4 October. At the 76th UN General Assembly, BTS shared that all members have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and also continued to encourage their fans to get vaccinated.
Assuring both Korean and other international fans that they will try their best to be back to their stages soon, the group also said: "It is our deepest regret that we are unable to hold more concerts in more areas. We will do our best to put on additional concerts for not only Korean fans but fans from all around the world who have been patiently waiting for a long time."
BTS will be holding the online version of Permission To Dance On Stage on 24 October at 6:30 PM KST (4:30 PM JKT, 5:30 PM PHT/SGT). Ticket details will be revealed soon.
