On Sunday night (April 2), BTS held the second of two sold-out shows at the Honda Center in Anaheim, CA.
With the BTS ARMY in full effect, cheering them on from start to finish, the seven-member boy band performed a nearly three-hour long show that incorporated the group's most popular hits and tracks from their record-breaking Wings album.
BTS members Rap Monster, Suga, J-Hope, Jungkook, V, Jimin and Jin sandwiched the show between their most recent pair of singles, beginning the night with the riotous “Not Today” and, nearly 30 songs later, saying farewell with the inspirational “Spring Day.” Following the first song and its militarily precise choreography, the septet introduced themselves to the crowd and expressed their excitement at performing in the U.S. After the propulsive “Not Today” set the tone, the group performed its southern-inspired, Keb’ Mo’ cover version of “Am I Wrong” and the fan-favorite “Silver Spoon.”
After BTS performed the 2015 hit “Dope” the guys went on to perform some of their solo and unit tracks, (“Lost,” “BTS Cypher Pt. 4”) off of Wings. The solitary, reflective showcases moved the audience, culminating in responsive cries of “we love you” from the crowd during Rap Monster’s “Reflection.” (Neither he nor Suga performed any of the tracks featured on their impassioned mixtapes or other projects separate from the rest of the group.) Though there were many memorable moments -- Jin being raised on platforms while singing about being unable to fly during “Awake,” Suga who was supported by a string section and playing the piano while rapping about his instrument being his “First Love” -- and some audio inconsistencies, by the time J-Hope rounded the segment out with his upbeat, choral-like ode to his “MAMA,” the audience was ready to see all seven men together again.
BTS then took the stage to perform “Fire" then after some fan interaction, followed up with a medley of some of its earliest singles/
BTS left the stage after performing wings and the audience showered with confetti. All-in-all it was an awesome show which left us still today with our ears ringing from screaming fans.
