BTS has finally arrived in Saudi Arabia!
Probably one of the most anticipated and discussed concerts that BTS has ever done will be their first concert in the Middle East, specifically in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The boys arrived in Saudi Arabia roughly 10 hours ago, since then and according to fans’ sightings, the boys hit the stadium to practice for their upcoming concert on October 11.
BTS choice to hold a concert in Saudi Arabia was met with mixed responses from some international ARMY, some had issues with BTS performing at Saudi Arabia considering their political motivations and actions which according to ARMY contradicts the image and message BTS is trying to promote.
Despite some backlash, the concert is set to be held as scheduled and Saudi Arabia made sure to make the boys feel welcomed in Riyadh pulling all the stops to ensure they had a wonderful time.
It began as soon as the boys landed in Riyadh. They were safely guarded the whole time and had over dozens of cars waiting for them surrounding the exit door so they could be safely transported from the airport to their hotel.
The number of cars and officials present at the airport gave many residents the feeling that a prince or a king had arrived in Riyadh, to their shock it was BTS. Fans also kept their distance, there was no shoving or overcrowding at the airport, ARMY respected the boys’ personal space.

It’s also been reported that BTS will stay at the Ritz Carlton hotel which is considered the biggest most luxurious hotel in Saudi Arabia, some of the royal family members stay there as well. Don’t worry, its safely guarded and not easy to get to if you have no reservation to stay there or business to do there.
Woah this will be the Hotel prepared by Arab Royals to honor the appearance of BTS in Saudi Arabia. . . BTS will stay here with some of the Arab Royal Family. . Great!!! It is a luxury! Very beautiful#RiyadhWelcomesBTS#BTSinRiyadh#WelcomeBTStoSaudiArabia @BTS_twt pic.twitter.com/isdBvCv0Eh
