BTS fans who attended the group’s recent concert in Beijing and voicing their disappointment about the event.
On July 28, Chinese outlets reported on fans being discontent with the concert. Unfortunately, fans had to be in the dark for about 30 minutes due to issues with lights at the concert venue. Concert organizers have since apologized for these technical difficulties.
Another aspect fans were disappointed with was Rap Monster’s absence from most of the concert. The leader experienced difficulty breathing and was unable to continue performing. Rap Monster personally apologized for this as well.
Due to the difficulties with the lighting, the concert ended shorter than planned and lasted about an hour and 30 minutes. Thus the concert ended around 9:30 p.m. and left fans wanting more.
Moreover, fans were most upset about only 15 songs being performed out of the expected 26. BTS performed 26 songs at their concert in Nanjing on July 2, so fans in Beijing were disappointed at the difference.
The report quoted a fan who said, “Since it was their last concert in China many fans came from other regions. However, there was great disappointment due to fewer songs being sung than originally announced and the lighting accidents.”
Apparently, fans who went to this concert paid for tickets ranging from 380 yuan to 1,580 yuan (approximately $57 to $237).
It appears as though a combination of unfortunate events resulted in a less than perfect concert experience.
