On April 8 and 9, BTS took to the stage to perform the first two shows of “PTD Las Vegas” at Allegiant Stadium. Although some ARMYs enjoyed the night, many others expressed concern about the behavior of certain attendees.
It often happens at concerts that fans want to throw gifts to performers on stage, but even if it’s with a good intention, some gifts can hurt people on stage if they don’t expect them.
The number of objects thrown at “PTD Las Vegas” seemed to increase and it became dangerous for the members. Videos shared showed the members being hit by objects thrown by these fans.
