hola mis amigos
today i'm gonna tell you all about my concert experience at rose bowl.
i met up with a discord chat friend and we waited in line for chicken tenders for over an hour and we ended up only getting lemonade. it was too close to showtime to wait in the OTHER long ass line to pick up the food. we were a mess. and ofc the next day there was no line at all for food. arghbargharb. *yeji voice* MAH LIFE. anyway, actual show time now. i was in section a1 which is waaaay at the corner. it was hard to see the performance of several song since it was either obstructed by the main stage or bts were at the extended stage which was way behind me. but i was really close to the front of the stage and the members would come over to my side during non-choreo songs and i got some nice glimpses of them. they are magical up close. all the songs were incredible. i got to hear wings live for the first time and i almost died. the new solo songs stages were amazing too. TAE IN BED,JIMIN IN A BUBBLE, SUGA IN SILK PJS, A FLYING KOOKIE BLESS. jimin's performance was really memorizing. and his tattoo is so hot. it doesn't seem like he's hiding it anymore since his outfit was a sheer white fabric on the tattoo-side of his body and it was on full display. it is really hot. he is really hot. like damn son. and then his fake love "shirt" nearly gave me a heart attack. thank you stylists, thank you. now if only i could get them to stop with the coconut head haircuts. i really wanted to see jin's forehead again but both days were coconuts. maybe i should bring a sign to metlife that reads "KIM SEOKJIN SHOW ME YOUR FOREHEAD."
during intermission every started doing a wave over and over lol. my ass did not bother getting up to do it. i was already tired.
the stadium was PACKED with fans. it was amazing to look behind me and see the venue filled with armys. "bots don't fill stadiums." anyone who was worried there would be a lot of empty seats since tickets were still available close to the show date had nothing to fear.
i also got stranded after the show. the venue stopped letting cars come in to get people for like 45 minutes. and no one could connect to their ride share apps since service was terrible there. i didn't get back to my airbnb until like 2:30 in the morning. wild.
oh and me and my friend got interviewed by MTV.
also manager sejin walked right by me.
there was no freaking line for chicken tenders. the universe hates me rip. but the show was magnificent which you expect from a bts concert. they really stepped up their game production-wise for this tour. jimin cried as the show was ending. i've now seen him cry twice in real life. so adorable. i got blasted by the water cannons twice. i was soaked. the show was mostly repeat of day 1 with different ments. Joon gave that amazing little speech and my eMOtioNs. whew. that man knows how to hit us hard in the feels. afterwards he had us turn our phone flashlights on and do a wave with that. jungkook wanted us to hide our army bombs during it and he did a cute little motion of tucking it away.
and i saw the dkdktv guys on day 2 too. they were filming the crowd with their phone and as i passed them i stopped dead in my tracks to awkwardly point and stare at them and ask "aren't you on youtube?" let's hope my dumbass isn't in their next video. dkfjkdss
yes this song that's utter perfection deserves it's own section. dionysus opens the show. fire works go off, two inflatable jaguars pop up, there's flames. whew. having this be the intro song works really well. you get so hyped up. i did notice they switched out the choreo a bit. instead of dropping to the floor in a push-up position they do something different. probably so they don't risk hurting themselves. i'll miss that badass choreo part but oh well. the performance still slays like nothing else.
and now time for some major LQ pictures:
