Sky News reports that the additional date comes comes days after ticket agencies were slammed for re-selling tickets to the first date for thousands of pounds.
BTS – comprised of Jimin, V, RM, J-Hope, Jungkook, Suga and Jin – performed two shows at the capital’s O2 Arena last year in support of their sixth album, ‘Love Yourself: Tear’. Reviewing the band’s New York stop-off, NME hailed the concert as “a dazzling and inclusive stadium spectacular”.

Not shocked at all. With 10 days notice, @BTS_twt has sold out both Wembley and Stade De France. Cue all of the confused UK & French media in a rush to educate themselves on BTS! #BTSxParis #BTSxWembley

One fan wrote that “there’s hope” now that a second date has been added.
BTS made history in 2018 as they became the first-ever K-pop group to be nominated for a Grammy. Following their appearance at the ceremony, Dolly Parton expressed interest in a collaboration after seeing a video of the group enjoying her performance on the night.
“Maybe my next #Jolene collab will be with @BTS_twt? What do y’all think?” the star tweeted.
BTS also presented the award for Best R&B Album at the event, with leader RM sending a message to fans: “We’ll be back.”
According to Wembley’s Guest Support Portal website, tickets for the second show go on sale on Friday, March 8.
