AceShowbiz - BTS (Bangtan Boys) fans camped out in the rain for days to catch the K-pop boy band's free concert in New York's Central Park on Wednesday morning (May 15).
The line of happy campers was 10 blocks long down Fifth Avenue ahead of the big gig - part of TV show "Good Morning America" Summer Concert Series.
The seven-member group took the stage just before 8 am local time to entertain thousands of screaming fans in the Big Apple sunshine.
Band member RM (Rap Monster) told the devotees, "Thank you for waiting for days. We appreciate your love."
He also raved about being part of the first group to land three albums at number one in the U.S. in a year since The Beatles, adding, "We're all fanboys of the Beatles... and we are so honoured to be with the greatest names in the music industry."
The group kicked off their Central Park set with their latest hit "Boy With Luv" and also performed "Fire".
The group is currently on its world tour, with shows lined up at New Jersey's Metlife Stadium on May 18 and 19.
BTS previously became the first-ever Korean group to appear on "Good Morning America" last year.
Interviewed after the band's first song, she said, "I was like, 'Can I please be a member...?' I have a whole new career path right now."
