Cube also provided 1500m of tensa barriers to ensure an effective and safe queue management system for fans queuing outside the store.
BTS MADE HISTORY IN LONDON
BTS, the K-pop boy band, made history by becoming the first South Korean group to headline Wembley Stadium. The seven-band group played to a 60,000 strong audience on both Saturday and Sunday nights as part of their stadium world tour. Performing hits including Boy with Luv, Dope, Idol and Fake Love, the concert was streamed live across the globe.
BTS may not quite be a household name in the UK as yet – although this will undoubtedly have changed since their live appearance on British Got Talent – but their fanbase, known as the ‘Army’, are highly devoted, totally dedicated and growing daily. The boy band’s popularity has skyrocketed in the last year and the group is now selling out stadiums across the globe.
