Every year iHeartRadio hosts a line up of the hottest musical acts for their Jingle Ball concerts. This year was no different as BTS opened the 2021 show with their chart topping singles “Butter” and “Dynamite” at The Forum in Los Angeles, California just a day after the last show of their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LA concerts held at SoFi Stadium.
On the last day of their sold out concerts, BTS made a surprise announcement that they would be bringing their PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE concert to Seoul, South Korea in March of 2022 for the group’s first offline in Korea since the COVID-19 crisis began.
Of course that had everyone wondering the same thing—are they preparing for a world tour? The world would love to know!
Decked out in Louis Vuitton, BTS stopped by the Mercedes-Benz Interview Lounge during Jingle Ball and dropped a few hints. When asked about a new album, the host told the boys “If you are working on a new album, right now, look at the camera and blink twice.”
They were then told to blink three times if they were preparing for a world tour!
Of course all the members were quick to just start blinking as much as they could. We don’t know whether or not to take that as a confirmation, but we’re definitely not taking that as a denial and neither are ARMYs!
Q: Should we expect a world tour in 2022? If you are working on a world tour, blink 3 times into the camera.

You just know they were trying so hard not to give any spoilers i.e. the Grammy spoiler:
No worries for BTS though as BIGHIT Music then went on to confirm that the boys are indeed working on their next full next album as they announced that BTS would be taking a much needed official extended vacation (their second one ever).
BTS will be focusing on preparing for the concert and release of the new album that will mark the beginning of a ‘new chapter’
So as we got the confirmation that BTS will be releasing another album soon, ARMYs are waiting in anticipation to see if there will be another world tour announcement coming soon.
As we wait, let’s see if the boys drop any hints on their newly acquired personal Instagram accounts!
