  • The strong religious culture in Saudi Arabia couldn’t stop abaya-covered fans from springing up in their seats to dance as K-pop superband BTS performed its latest mega hit, “Boy With Luv,” in the country’s capital, Riyadh, Friday evening.
  • It was a historic moment that marked the first-ever stadium concert by non-Arab artists in Saudi Arabia, reportedly arranged as a symbolic moderation gesture by the Arab kingdom.
  • The Saudi Arabian concert is the final overseas stop of BTS’ “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour, under which the septet have performed in major American cities, as well as in London, Paris and Japan.
