Grammy-nominated artists are planning to come back with another version of Bang Bang Con, which is taking place on April 17, 2021. 

On their official Twitter account, they made this announcement on April 11, midnight KST. They shared a colorful teaser for Bang Bang Con 2021. They wrote, ‘Smart, this is Army’s room? ’ With included some hashtags that read ‘Bang Bang Con 2021’, ‘already a year’, ‘like last year’s April’, ‘BTS concert in the room’.

BTS organized a two-day live broadcast on their YouTube account Bangtan TV last April. It was a 48-hour repeat performance of their previous shows and anniversary muster series, with fans getting to enjoy their latest album. The schedule of which concerts will be broadcast this time has yet to be announced.

BTS organized their first virtual concert, Bang Bang Con – The Live, two months after Bang Bang Con to celebrate their seventh anniversary in June. They built a Guinness World Record for the virtual concert, which was live-streamed from Seoul, with viewers from 107 countries tuning in. A total of 756,000 people watched the live stream, making it the “most viewers for a music festival live stream.”

Meanwhile, on November 20, 2020, BTS unveiled their album ‘BE (Deluxe Edition),’ which ranked at No. 1 on Billboard 2020, with their title track ‘Life Goes On’ reaching No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. They became the third artist to enter No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart (after ‘Dynamite,’ Jawsh 685, and Jason Derulo’s ‘Savage Love – Laxed – Siren Beat,’) and the first to do so with a Korean album.

The title track became the first Korean album to ever reach number one on the Billboard charts. With over 1.26 million downloads, ‘Dynamite’ was the top-selling digital album in the United States in 2020.

The song ‘Dynamite,’ which was unveiled on August 21, 2020, ranked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on September 5 and has now completed 18 weeks at the top. ‘Dynamite’ has broken the 17-week record set in 2017 by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s ‘Despacito,’ which starred Justin Bieber.
