BTS fans might miss watching the K-pop group’s stage performances from around the world, but the group is making sure fans virtually get their regular dose of BTS love. RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook recently appeared on MTV Unplugged and entertained their fans with tracks from their latest album BE. The group performed “Blue and Gray”, “Telepathy” and “Life Goes On”. They also surprised fans with a cover version of Coldplay’s “Fix You”.
It was the group’s first performance as a septet in 2021, with Suga missing in action for some time due to his shoulder surgery. It was also the first time fans heard the band perform “Blue and Gray” and “Telepathy”.
At the end of the performance, RM said that they wanted to make these performances stand out in a live concert, but they couldn’t do it due to the pandemic. “We will continue to stay by your side this year with great music,” Jungkook said in a message to BTS ARMY.
“We were supposed to show you these scenes at a live concert, so sorry we had to do it remotely, but I hope many of you enjoyed it again. We are so grateful that we had this chance to play live. We really hope the ARMY appreciates it, ”Suga said. “In 2021, we will continue to be who we are as BTS and bring great music, comfort and healing,” said V.
BE was released in November 2020 and the title song “Life Goes On” was inspired by the theme of global lockdown. In a previous interview with NDTV, BTS said, “We want to see our fans in India and show them our performances. We hope that day will come soon when this pandemic ends. “
“I think that more than ever, during this global pandemic, music transcends barriers, nationalities and age. It is encouraging for us to hear how our music has given energy through a difficult time. And I think the way to overcome that is for all of us to pull ourselves together, ”they added.
