Will K-pop phenomenon BTS walk in the footsteps of legendary English band the Beatles?


The Beatles Story, a Liverpool-based museum devoted to the iconic band from the 1960s, has attempted to organize the cross-time meeting, reports said Wednesday. Founded in 1990, the museum is the world’s largest permanent exhibition dedicated to the Beatles.

It has sent an official invitation recently to the Korean band, offering the members a VIP tour of the exhibition and asking them to perform at the museum when they tour England in June.

The museum said its officials watched BTS’ exhibition of “The Beatles’ spirit” on the American program “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on May 15.

The septet channeled the legends on the show by wearing black-and-white suits just like the Beatles did in 1964, when the group first appeared on the American program “The Ed Sullivan Show” filmed on the same stage as the Late Show is now. BTS even belted out “Hey Jude,” a smash-hit song by the Beatles released in 1968.

The museum praised the seven stars for creating “BTS mania” on an American show.


BTS’ agency Big Hit Entertainment said it received the invitation, but did not reveal whether it would accept the offer.

Seo Kang-seok, president of the Beatles’ fan club in Korea, said, “It is rare and symbolic for The Beatles Story to officially invite BTS.”

BTS has been dubbed the “next Beatles” by numerous media for its worldwide fandom and musical accomplishments ― both groups have had three Billboard No. 1 albums in a single year.

BTS is set to hold a concert on June 1 at Wembley Stadium in London, a 90,000 seat venue. The performance is a part of the “LOVE YOURSELF: SPEAK YOURSELF” tour.
