Bangtan Boys, also known as BTS, kicked off their European tour at Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday.
They became the first Korean act to perform at the iconic venue, following in the footsteps of legendary musicians such as Queen, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Elton John.
The stadium was packed to capacity with over 60,000 people, and the cheering from their fans, known as "the Army," was deafening. Fans from all over Europe waved light sticks to welcome their idols.
BTS sang about two dozen songs starting with "Dionysus," a perfect fit for the ancient Greek-themed stage.
Fans of different nationalities, skin colors, genders and ages all came together in harmony to sing the Korean songs for nearly three hours.
Just six years after their debut in 2013, BTS made history in the most sought-after venue for pop stars, bringing together fans from all over the world.
BTS will travel to France for concerts slated for June 7 and 8.
