How many people attended BTS’ ‘Permission to Dance On Stage – Seoul’ concerts?

Permission to Dance On Stage – Seoul marked BTS’ first in-person concerts in South Korea since Love Yourself: Speak Yourself [The Final] in 2019.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, BTS’ 2020 Map of the Soul Tour was canceled. In 2020 and 2021, BTS were unable to perform any concerts with an in-person audience in South Korea. Instead, the band put on multiple virtual concerts.

While the Seoul Olympic Stadium is an incredibly spacious venue, capacity at Permission to Dance On Stage – Seoul was limited due to restrictions regarding the coronavirus.

According to a press release, “The three-day in-person concert was attended by a total of 45,000 people in compliance with the COVID-19 protocols with a maximum capacity of 15,000 per show.”
