For BTS‘s first concert of 2022, “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE,” they are holding both a three-day concert event in Seoul, South Korea, as well as four in-person concerts in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fans are incredibly excited about the new content from getting to see BTS performing live again, especially since Jin, V, and the director of the Seoul concerts, Ha Jung Jae, have given some spoilers about what fans can expect.
For instance, Jin sadly revealed that he could not perform “Super Tuna” at the concert, although he was offered an alternative.
Jin said he submitted SUPER TUNA for the concert set list but it was rejected since it's a solo song.! They said he would perform it at the fan meet event !!

And despite many of the member’s careful hiding of any setlist spoilers…

V did not seem to mind that he spoiled two of the songs in the upcoming setlist for the Seoul concerts.

But fans have received the most hope from Ha Jung Jae’s commentary, as he specifically explained that the way the setlist was chosen for the Seoul concerts was entirely different from how BTS has previously chosen concert setlists.
Usually, recently released albums and songs are given priority for concerts, but for the “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE” setlists, no BTS songs were off the table.
We put all of BTS’s songs on the table – songs they’ve never performed publicly before, songs the members want to perform for the fans, songs fans may want to see, and more, and discussed it with the members.
— Ha Jung Jae
Similarly, the director also shared that the setlist will change for each concert, even between the three concerts in Seoul.
Because of the idea that BTS could be performing older songs that fans have not seen them perform in a while, fans, of course, took to Twitter to share which songs they hoped might be incorporated into the setlist.
boyz with fun, attack on bangtan and if i ruled the world will be performed if i have sumn to do with that setlist

will be really jealous of armys who will see louder than bombs and paradise performance live if it's on the concert set list

And while BTS has an incredible amount of songs in their repertoire, fans have seemed to come to a consensus about which song they most want to see performed at BTS’s upcoming concerts.
“We put all BTS songs on the table and discussed with the members on each and every song to make up the concert." ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE FROM LOUDER THAN BOMBS TO PIED PIPER TO LIKE …pic.twitter.com/oC3gAJmNIF

A song that often is repeated on people’s ideal setlist is “Pied Piper.”
some of my guesses😭
louder than bombs, pied piper, mic drop, dionysus (maybe), fly to my room, boy in luv, anpanman, whalien 52, Run, We are bulletproof pt 2, Boyz with fun

yoongi saying ptd is not an easy cue sheet.. as in the setlist must be crazy insane… idk guys i think this means paradise, pied piper, boyz with fun and all those fun songs

“Pied Piper” is a song about the conflict between fans’ priorities, BTS versus life responsibilities. And, because of the rude choreography, fans believe that it would especially be the perfect addition to a Las Vegas setlist.
All I’m saying is: if there was ever a city to perform Pied Piper in, Vegas would be the city…

And if we get Pied Piper in Las Vegas, what then

Fans are eager to see the incredible harmony between Jin and V again.

And can’t fathom how attractive Jungkook would look performing this song with his tattoos and piercings.

All the members shine during the song and choreography, and fans are hoping for more deadly fancams.
Featuring J-Hope and Jimin‘s incredible dancing.

Although fans might not survive a new performance of “Pied Piper,” they definitely are hopeful that the song will be included in at least one of the upcoming setlists.
