Last week, the group’s official Twitter account shared a poster for “Proof Live,” teasing a “special guest” alongside the seven members. The event takes place this Monday, June 13 at 9pm KST / 8am ET and is streaming on the group’s official YouTube channel, known as “BANGTAN TV.”

Unlike previous BTS live streams, fans will be able to watch the BTS “Proof” live stream online for free, since their YouTube channel isn’t geo-blocked and doesn’t require a subscription to access.
The streaming event was likely filmed during the BTS “Permission to Dance” tour dates back in April, when the group was in Las Vegas for four nights of sold-out shows. The group first teased their new album during the last night of the tour, when the phrase “We are bulletproof” and the date “2022.06.10” was shown on screen. Of course we now know that refers to the name of the three-disc album, Proof, and the album’s release date on June 10.
As for who the special guest could be? It turned out to be — spoiler alert — Anderson .Paak, who met a few of the guys in BTS after they attended the Silk Sonic residency in Vegas.
