Touring Consultant BTS are a k-pop boy band from South Korea – the name is an acronym for the Korean phrase Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to "Bulletproof Boy Scouts". However, they are also known as Bangtan Boys and have adapted their BTS name to also stand for "Beyond The Scene". The group formed in 2010 before signing with Big Hit Entertainment in 2013. While releasing music through Universal Music, they have released eight studio albums throughout their career, the most recent being "Be," which was released back in 2020. Their first English-language single, "Dynamite," was released that same year and broke the YouTube record for the most viewed premiere. BTS have become a global phenomenon over the past couple of years and are considered the biggest boyband in the world, with a net worth of $50 million. The South Korean band is the best-selling artist in the country's history and also became the fastest group since The Beatles to earn four US number one albums, doing so in less than two years. The popular boyband broke the record of the most Youtube views in 24 hours back in August, with their "Dynamite" video reaching 101.1 million views in just a day. In the same month, the group made their MTV Video Music Awards debut with the first live performance of "Dynamite" and won four awards: best group, best choreography, best pop video, and best K-pop. Earlier this year it was revealed that BTS was named the top Global Recording Artist of the Year for 2020 by the IFPI. On March 4, 2021, it was also revealed that BTS became the first non-English act to be named the top Global Recording Artist of the Year of 2020.

Show Director @ Reading Stadium (Review) Belting out hit after hit and joking with music fans Jessie J was a fantastic encore for the AllStarz Summer Party at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday.The energetic 25-year-old kept the crowd excited and buzzing even though many had been there all afternoon in the hot sunshine.Jessie's sparkling personality shone through in her sterling performance, which featured a mixture of new and old songs against an impressive light show and uplifting backing singers. In between songs, The Voice judge spoke to fans and even signed a hoodie thrown on to the stage for a delighted teenager.The line-up featured several big names as well as Jessie including JLS, Lawson, Wiley, Amelia Lily and Union J. Warm-up acts were on stage from just after 2pm with pre-show entertainment including Stedman who is making a solo career comeback after his time with Five Star. It was evident by the t-shirts and banners JLS were the big draw, as the crowd erupted at just after 4pm when the boys came on stage. The AllStarz Summer Party marked the start of the end for JLS, who announced at the end of April they will split up after their final album and tour.The X Factor successes sang some old favourites as well as new, while maintaining a fast-paced performance with their signature dance moves. It was a fantastic send-off and there was a resounding feeling from spectators it is such a shame JLS will soon be no more.Steve Appleton, Christina Karélina, The Vamps and Charlie Brown played throughout the afternoon before bubbly Amelia Lily wowed on stage with her incredible range of vocals. Down-to-earth Amelia chatted with the crowd and gave a great performance before local boy Josh Cuthbert, from Winkfield, and his band Union J came on stage as screaming girls jumped up and down. The vocals of this boy band were stunning with perfect harmonies and the boys, especially Josh, had great banter with the crowd. New single Carry You was performed alongside other songs perfected on the X Factor - it will be exciting to see what the boys have to offer in the future. Lawson and Wiley also rounded off a day of versatile and energetic performance as the sun began to set on a day of fun, dancing and singing along. It was a great use of the football stadium while the season is over. Bring on the next gig!
