The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will welcome BTS for a week of shows

BTS, the biggest band in the world, is making its home at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon all next week. The K-pop band is set to perform all five nights.

It wasn’t all that long ago that BTS took over The Tonight Show. Fans no doubt remember Jimmy Fallon giving the band a tour of New York City, holding the “Subway Olympics,” and the massive Grand Central performance of their single “ON.”

Now the boys are back for another late-night takeover. Fallon announced that the band will appear starting Monday, Sept. 28. Things will kick off with a performance with some help from Fallon and The Roots. Then fans will be treated to a new song every night.

There is no doubt that “Dynamite” will be among the songs the band performs for the Tonight Show audience. The band’s first song recorded completely in English was an instant hit, setting records and giving BTS its first number-one single in the U.S.

The other songs will come as a surprise to those who tune in. The BTS Army will surely have requests and predictions but we won’t know for sure until next week when the band closes out each episode of The Tonight Show.

BTS continues to have a rewarding relationship with late-night television

It hasn’t been easy for late-night television shows during the pandemic. Without a studio audience and without live guests, it has been difficult to differentiate shows and prevent things from becoming stale.

Jimmy Fallon and others have done their best and have already gone above and beyond what fans could have expected. But The Tonight Show is making the wise decision by turning to BTS to create a special event and giving late-night TV a shot of energy.

Nearly every late-night show has featured BTS as interview guests and/or musical performers. And every time that has happened, the audience has expanded. BTS boasts the most dedicated and caring fanbase in music and it shows anytime the band provides a live performance.

The Tonight Show knows this better than almost anyone and it surely factored into the decision to invite the band for a week of shows. And while the pandemic will prevent Fallon and the band from interacting in person, the week will nevertheless be a must-see event. BTS knows how to put on a show and The Tonight Show has mastered the remote format.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights on NBC at 11:35 p.m. You can also stream the show on Peacock, watch on the NBC website or app, or on Fubo TV.
