BTS make history with iconic appearance as The Beatles | The Music Universe
Group makes first appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
More than 55 years after The Beatles made their iconic U.S. television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, the biggest pop act on the planet, BTS, followed in their historic footsteps and made their own iconic appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert inside the historic Ed Sullivan Theater, which was transformed to how it looked in February 1964. Watch the cold open, where the group and Colbert were styled to resemble The Beatles and Ed Sullivan himself, respectively, below.
Graciously embracing the comparisons to The Beatles, the global superstars sat down for an interview with Colbert before taking the stage to perform their biggest hit to date “Boy With Luv.”
“Boy With Luv” is the first single off their record-breaking album, Map of the Soul: Persona. The album, released April 12th, marked their third consecutive No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart in just 11 months, making BTS the only group to achieve that feat since The Beatles in 1995-1996.
The critically-acclaimed group show no signs of stopping as they gear up for back to back, sold-out shows at MetLife Stadium this Saturday and Sunday – the next stop on their Love Yourself: Speak Yourself stadium tour. The tour kicked off with sold out dates at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles and Soldier Field in Chicago prior to making its way to New York.
BTS continues to take the world by storm with a fandom built on their undeniable talent and cultural impact, proving that just like The Beatles, they’ll remain a household name as they pave the way forward in history, breaking countless records and barriers along the way.
