BTS BANG BANG CON 21 Breaks Previous Year’s Viewership Record

BTS has done it again!

If you watched the BTS’s BANG BANG CON 21 this weekend, you’re with us. As a matter of fact, the astounding viewership figures revealed that this online concert streaming event has broken the previous year’s viewership record of the concert.



BTS is known to be one of the first groups who started pandemic concert streaming back in April last year when the group announced the first BANG BANG CON. In a matter of days, BTS launched eight of their concerts and fan meetings on YouTube for free. Like in any concert, ARMY’s light sticks were even set to sync with the stream all across the globe.

It’s no surprise that the concert event was a colossal success, attracting a peak viewership figure of 2.24 million. The group went on to hold their first paid online concert, BANG BANG CON: The Live, later that year, where it was selling 756,000 tickets to viewers in 107 countries.

Provided BTS’ popularity in online concerts came to be, it should not be a surprise that HYBE (former Big Hit Entertainment) decided to have a new online concert streaming event almost the same year after the original BANG BANG CON was held. The event was on April 17th, BANG BANG CON 21 which comes with free streams of BTS Live Trilogy EP.1: BTS Begins (2015), BTS 5th Muster “Magic Shop” (2019), and Speak Yourself (2019).

With the released numbers from HYBE, it revealed that the BangtanTV event managed to break BTS’s impressive 2020 viewership with over 2.7 million viewers. ARMYs are hoping that the beloved BTS will keep up the annual tradition of streaming old concerts for fans to enjoy.
