With just a few hours left before BTS’ first gig of its North American tour, devoted fans have been spotted camping out for days in front of Staples Center, waiting for the show to begin.

Several US media outlets reported Wednesday that tents, sleeping bags and folding chairs have been lined up around the block surrounding the concert venue in Los Angeles since last week, as concertgoers camped out for days to get a closer spot to the stage at Wednesday’s concert at 8 p.m. (Pacific time)

According to CNBC, the most expensive single ticket sold so far for one of BTS’ US shows went for $3,849.38, which was for the group’s Chicago show. BTS tickets are being selling for an average of $823 on the secondary market, more than double the average for Taylor Swift’s 2018 “Reputation” tour.
