BTS kicked off Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series with performances of “Boy With Luv” and “Fire” at New York’s Central Park Wednesday.
The K-pop giants breezed through “Boy With Luv” with characteristic aplomb, hitting inch-perfect choreography as they crooned the disco-tinged track. The group also got an assist on the song’s “Oh yeah, oh yeah” refrain from the massive crowd.
BTS also delivered a blistering rendition of their early single “Fire,” which appeared on their 2016 compilation album, The Most Beautiful Moment in Life: Young Forever. Full performances of both “Fire” and “Boy With Luv” are available on the GMA website.
Following the performances, BTS spoke briefly about their dedicated fans, touring in America and recently becoming the first band since the Beatles to notch three Number One albums on the Billboard albums chart in a single year.
“I mean, we’re all fanboys of [the] Beatles, of course, who is not,” said RM. “We feel so honored to be with the greatest names in the music industry.”
BTS released their most recent album, Map of the Soul: Persona in April. The group has been performing stadium shows across the U.S. this month and will wrap the run with a two-night stand at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on May 18th and 19th.
