Some 624,000 people joined K-pop supergroup BTS’ latest live concert series both online and offline, according to data compiled by the band’s agency Big Hit Music.

During the four “Permission to Dance on Stage – Las Vegas” shows on April 8-9 and Friday and Saturday at Allegiant Stadium, nearly 200,000 fans — 50,000 attendees per session — showed up to the sold-out concerts.

It was also estimated that a total of 22,000 people gathered at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, where the concerts were broadcast in real time through a large screen over those four days, the data showed.

About 402,000 people from 182 countries and regions watched the septet’s last show through Weverse, the fan community platform run by Hybe.

“According to Allegiant Stadium, BTS has been the one and only music act that has performed solo concerts at the venue four times in a row and attracted 200,000 people through four sessions of the show,” Big Hit officials said.

At the Las Vegas concert, the boy group performed its major hit songs, including “On,” “Fire,” “Dope” and “Blood Sweat & Tears.” The show focused on changing the stage’s backgrounds to highlight the performances, while minimizing props and effects, the officials added.

“Permission to Dance on Stage” was launched last October in Seoul through a livestreamed show, before being held as in-person concerts in Los Angeles in November and December and again in Seoul in March. The concert series wrapped up with the Las Vegas leg this month.

The accumulated number of audiences who enjoyed the concert series, which was held 12 times across all formats including online and offline performances, surpassed 4 million, the officials said.
