According to Billboard, the performance of BTS became the highest-grossing concert in the history of the stadium. Earlier, Taylor Swift and U2 were the only artists who held the records. Now BTS has taken over that record.
During the tour, “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” sold around 299,770 tickets in the U.S. and earned more than $44 million.

BTS still has some concerts left in Asia. They will perform in July, and the concerts will be held at the key cities in Japan, including Shizuoka and Osaka. However, there were some issues at the BTS concert in Stade de France. The officials had to make some repairs in the stadium as the fans damaged the pitch area. The finals of the French Top 14 were scheduled the next day in the stadium.
According to the reports, the worn out parts of the field had to be replaced. The total damaged area measured around 3 by 30m. The ground director Alexandra Boutelier said,
“We held two concerts by the K-Pop group BTS last week, with an absolutely monumental level of production. It was a technical challenge. We treated the hardness of the ground in a way which kept its technical consistency.
