BTS is still pulling in good numbers for their online concerts despite the ongoing pandemic!
After celebrating their 7th debut anniversary, BTS held a special livestream concert that gave fans all over the world the chance to enjoy a BTS concert live. The numbers of the viewers are in and people can’t stop talking about it.
Over 756,600 people from 107 different regions across the globe streamed the live concert that had a pay-per-view concept, it gave fans six different angle from which they could see the members and enjoy the show.
But what about the ticket sales?
The ticket sales has reportedly passed at least 25 billion won ($20.7 million), prices for the members were 29,000 won ($24) and 39,000 ($32.4) for non-members.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, BTS were among the countless acts who were forced to cancel their concerts, however, they continue to entertain their fans with content and live online concerts.
Are you surprised by the numbers?
My Personal Thoughts
The price isn’t really that high and many fans can afford it.
BTS are lucky to have such dedicated fan base that would watch an online live concert for them. Big Hit is also very lucky because their profits will plummet this year, like all other agencies, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The profits for these concerts will be a lot better and bigger because they don’t have to pay a lot of expenses they usually have to due to the physicality of the concert.
I personally wouldn’t pay money to watch an online concert, I’d rather just watch re-runs of my favorite artists concerts, but I understand the appeal and to avid fans who can’t travel to see BTS; for whatever reason; will likely be very happy to have watched them live like this.
I predict BTS will do this more often until the pandemic dies down, and we are only at the beginning of this pandemic, it’s not going away any time soon.
More and more groups will do similarly and hold online concerts and I predict that even after the pandemic dies down, theses types of concerts will still be around, not as popular but they’ll still be around.
