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.
