Details: Fans treated with performances, joined and enjoyed virtually
At the event, a big screen was placed below the outdoor stage, where the septet performed, and the ARMY could be seen enjoying themselves to the tunes. They sang their recent hits like, Life Goes On, Butter, Dynamite, Stay and Fly To My Room. The boys thanked their fans by sharing cute behind-the-scenes from their stage. Further, BTS announced a new Butter CD.
Announcement: New 'Butter' CD announced instead of a new album
The fans, who were waiting for a new album to be announced at the event, were instead treated with the information of a new Butter CD. According to reports, there will be two versions of the physical CD titled Peaches and Cream. There will also be one new track released with the CD. The grand event also closed the two-week long BTS Festa.
