Critical Reception[]

Permission to Dance On Stage — LA received positive reviews from critics. Kevin E G Perry from The Independent gave the concert a five-star review, calling it "a thrilling two-and-a-half hour show". For NME, Abby Webster also gave the concert five stars, and praised the setlist as a "unique blend of alchemy". Eryn Murphy from Showbiz Cheat Sheet wrote that the setlist "honored BTS’ history" and called the concerts "a jumping-off point for a new beginning".

Consequence reviewer Mary Siroky described the LA concerts as "four days of pure joy" that "felt like a mini music festival", writing that it was "a moment of reunion between BTS and their beloved ARMY" and "an experience that has to be seen to be believed". The publication included it on their list of the 12 best live shows of 2021. For The Atlantic, Lenika Cruz described the concerts as "a kind of vindication of BTS — of their talent, authenticity, reach, and emotional connection with fans. All of those things had been called into question by critics, or at times by the artists themselves, in 2021. The four nights were loud, ecstatic, and poignant proof that they had all been wrong".[1]

Commercial Performance[]

According to Billboard, Permission to Dance On Stage — LA recorded the biggest box office score total by any act in nearly a decade, grossing $33.3 million from 214,000 tickets sold, and made BTS' four SoFi Stadium shows the highest-grossing engagement of 2021 since venues reopened. It is the largest-grossing run of shows at a single venue since 2012 when Pink Floyd's Roger Waters earned $38 million from over nine shows at Estadio River Plate in Buenos Aires, Argentina; the biggest US-based boxscore in 18 years; the biggest ever boxscore in California; the second-biggest in the history of Billboard Boxscore in North America behind only Bruce Springsteen's $38.7 million-earning 10 shows at Giants Stadium in New Jersey; and the sixth best-grossing engagement in Billboard Boxscore history.

Additionally, the shows marked the first time a non-English-language act surpassed $20 and $30 million in one engagement—previously, Mexican singer Luis Miguel held the record with $19.3 million earned from 30 shows at Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City in 2006. BTS became the seventh act in history to earn over $30 million in a single engagement, alongside Waters, Springsteen, U2, the Grateful Dead, Take That, and the Spice Girls.[1]
