Citing the show in various interviews, it left a lasting impact on the three rap line members…
…and left fans with some of the cutest selfies!
Another iconic memory J-Hope revealed he still has is his New York Mets bucket hat he purchased from Citi Field.
Taking place on October 6, 2018, BTS’s first ever stadium concert in the USA was a legendary experience for both ARMY and BTS! Ending the “Love Yourself” Tour, the emotional night was a milestone in BTS’s growth as artists.
Emerging for the encore in the adorable piece of merchandise, fans can never forget the special day — and neither will J-Hope!
