BTS’ J-Hope makes history on Lollapalooza festival stage, K- pop megastar J- Hope of BTS made history on Sunday as the closer at Chicago s periodic Lollapalooza weekend, getting the first Korean act to caption a majorU.S. music jubilee.
The star appeared to dramatically pop out of a box as he took the stage in Chicago s Grant Park, and was saluted by a ocean of screaming suckers.
The crowd rapped and sang along to songs from J- Hope’s new single reader and to BTS classics similar as” Dynamite.”
” Do you want some further?” he asked the mass of people, offering a special cry- eschewal to the” BTS Army,” as the group’ssuper-fans are known.
J- Hope, who also presented a special communication to observers in Korean, was joined at the end of his set by songster Becky G for a rendition of their collaboration” Chicken Noodle Soup.”
This time’s edition of Lollapalooza, which was streamed live on the Hulu platform, also featured theU.S. jubilee debut of hereafter X Together, another Korean boy band that’s under the same marker as BTS.
” These artists have been given great gifts in communication. Their global followership speak different languages but retain an violent passion for their music,” said Lollapalooza author Perry Farrell in June.
” Lolla is the place where all music stripes live in harmony.”
J-Hope’s main stage appearance comes more than a month after the seven members of the world’s most popular BTS announced they would be taking a break from the group to focus on their solo careers.
In a moving video clip posted on Septet’s official YouTube channel, they told fans that they were “exhausted” and needed some rest.
At the time, J-Hope said the move could help BTS “become a stronger group.”
The 28-year-old artist’s debut solo mixtape “HopeWorld” peaked at number 38 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart in 2018.
BTS were the first Korean act to dominate Billboard’s US Top Singles chart, a milestone with the group’s first hit, “Dynamite,” sung entirely in English.
is also one of the few acts since the Beatles to release four albums in less than two years to reach number one in the US.
The group has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, but has yet to win one.
BTS made headlines earlier this year when they visited the White House to deliver a message to President Joe Biden about fighting anti-Asian racism. (AFP)
