BTS have been confirmed for the 2021 KIIS FM Jingle Ball, with the group hitting the stage on December 3rd from the L.A. Forum in Inglewood. The global superstars are expected to open the show, performing their hit songs, “Dynamite” and “Butter.”
BTS joins a star-studded lineup that also includes Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie, Black Eyed Peas, Tate McRae, Bazzi, and Dixie D’Amelio.
While tickets to see BTS at Jingle Ball are essentially sold out at Ticketmaster (there are still a few packages or solo seats left on Ticketmaster.com), we’ve spotted BTS tickets available online on VividSeats.com. As of this writing, pricing for BTS tickets started at $138.
Once known as a resale site for tickets, Vivid Seats now brands itself as an “independent ticket marketplace,” and has quickly become a way to score sold-out or hard-to-find tickets to festivals and concerts, including BTS tickets for Jingle Ball 2021.

The BTS Jingle Ball show will follow the group’s mini fall tour, which takes the members to Los Angeles for four nights of shows at the new SoFi Stadium. Dubbed “BTS Permission to Dance On Stage — LA,” the group performs on November 27th and 28th, and December 1st and 2nd. The concerts mark the first time the group will have performed live for an in-person audience since 2019.
It hasn’t been easy getting tickets to “BTS Permission to Dance on Stage” though. Fans weren’t impressed by the rollout for tickets earlier this month, accusing Ticketmaster of long wait times, slow loading and faulty access codes that didn’t work.
Most of the tickets were snapped up even before the general on-sale began, with ticket owners to the (Covid-cancelled) “Map of the Soul” tour getting first dibs, followed by official Army fan club members, and those who registered (and were approved) for the General Verified Fan Presale on Ticketmaster.com. In fact, no tickets were actually available by the time the public on-sale rolled around.
Due to overwhelming past purchaser & Verified Fan presale demand for BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA, all shows are sold out & tickets are not available for the public onsale.

Then just this past week, Ticketmaster suddenly released more BTS tickets online, with new seats to the BTS Los Angeles concert being made available to verified fans on Ticketmaster.com. The confusion and sudden release of new BTS tickets led to even more outrage online.

Of course, you can keep checking Ticketmaster as well — the site occasionally puts seats up for sale the day of the show, often due to tickets before refunded or previously reserved seats opening up. When it comes to scoring BTS Los Angeles tickets online, a little bit of extra effort could go a long way.
