AceShowbiz - BTS (Bangtan Boys) kicked off their highly-anticipated world tour "Love Yourself: Speak Yourself" at Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California on Saturday night, May 4. There were undoubtedly memorable moments during the opening show, including the one where Jungkook was suspended in the air when they belted out "Euphoria".
Fans successfully captured the moment and shared it online. In the video, the youngest member of the group was suspended by wires above the audience, who thought that he looked like an angel by doing so. "This is actual proof that Jungkook is angel," one said. Prior to this, he joined the other members onstage to open the show with a stunning performance of "Dionysus" in between two giant panther statues.
Elsewhere during the three-hour show, Jimin appeared inside a transparent bubble to sing "Serendipity" before the group reunited to belt out "The Truth Untold". Jin, Jimin, Jungkook and V sang in tandem on a platform that lifted them several feet in the air during the performance. Near the end of the concert, which was attended by Nick Jonas, leader RM (Rap Monster) said, "This is the most important night of my life. ...Many years later, I'll definitely think about this night."
"Thank you for making happy memories," Jin told the audience, while V admitted, "Yesterday I was nervous. This morning I was nervous. Now I am happy." The boys concluded the show with rousing renditions of "Anpanman", "So What", "Make It Right" and "Mikrokosmos". During the performance of "Anpanman", they slid down the slide of an inflatable bouncy house.
Besides the massive sets, another highlight of the show was the fact that BTS rocked outfits from Dior Men's artistic director Kim Jones. It marked his first collaboration with a pop band.
