It turned out to be the biggest box office earner in 18 years in the United States. And now, even though we’re only six months away from 2022, the “Permission To Dance – On Stage” concert series continues to break records.
On June 8, it was revealed that BTS had earned over $75 million from their “PTD On Stage” offline concerts held in 2022.

BTS earns $75 million with just seven concerts in 2022
With BTS on the list with just seven concerts in 2022 – in Seoul and Las Vegas, the milestone is all the more impressive.
