BTS came to New York/ Newark NJ.
I had never been to New York before but when I herd BTS was coming I made sure I was going. Months in advance when tickets went on sale me and my good friend sat on our computers for tickets to drop. We had both laptops trying to buy tickets. My laptop came up with 2 P2 tickets. Her laptop came up as sold out.
We drove about 6/7 hours to New York and stayed in a hotel near the concert.
The night before the concert we lined up around 11:30/12am To get in line. When we arrived there was about 200 people already camping with tents. Cops had to block roads and stay all night because it was not the safest area.
We slept outside (kind of) but it was soooooo cold. No joke I had to get up every like 30 min to an hour to walk. Also I had to pee and went walking around at 2 am to find a bathroom. About an hour looking we found a sketch porta potty. It worked though!
The sun rose and we felt pure joy come over us with the morning warmth! what blessing the sun is! It was about 11 am and staff started setting up. The concert was at 8pm so we got inside around 5:30 pm. We were standing about 2 rows of people from the stage and I was starting to feel sick sadly. 3 and a half hours went by fast because I somewhat napped sitting on my feet in squat form.
The concert started and OH MY GOD! NEVER WILL I GET A STANDING TICKET! I was pushed so much just from the first song I nearly died. I called the body guard to pull me out and he sat me at the pit front stage and the fans behind me got angry because the staff didnt remove me from the pit. So I just enjoyed the rest of the song from that spot at the stage lol. The guard said I looked to tired to climb back over the gate so he let me be for that song. I got over, went to the infirmary and got water. The staff was awesome and super nice! I went back to the show but sadly I missed the solo stages of Jimin and Yoongi (My bias. I missed.)
From this point on I had a better view of BTS and I had space to breath!
There was a point in the concert that Namjoon (Rap Monster) stopped the show to tell people to stop pushing and to back up. BTS waited for us to push back before starting again.
ONE THING I WANT A REFUND FOR IS YOONGI NOT SAYING ROLEX! During his part in CYPHER P4 He said nothing! I was looking forward to that the most! YOU HAVE NO IDEA! THAT WAS THE ONE THING I WANTED TO REALLY HEAR AND SEE! I TALKED ABOUT FOR MONTHS! HE HE DIDNT DO IT!
Here is a slide show of pictures I got! (Photos suck! But my videos came out a lot better!)
REAL LIFE BTS
After the concert ended I found my friend. Turned out she lost her phone so we stayed behind and had to look around the stage for her phone while staff was cleaning everything. Most positive we saw either V,Jungkook, or maybe but not likely Jimin. on the back side of the stage going to the back. They had a Wings hat on and the shirt you see above.But from the hair color and build thats what im basing it off of. Sadly never found her phone. But stupid moment of the night was being trying to ask a BigHit staff member for directions at the sound area. Where he CLEARLY did not know English! I was so dumb. Like its really funny if you were there but. Im stupid.
Anyways if you want to see some videos of the concert here are some links to them on my youtube! You can go to the channel for all the videos!
Hope you enjoyed! -SQUID
