On June 22, BTS and Big Hit Entertainment have donated $1 million to Crew Nation. It was to help concert crew members who have been financially impacted due to COVID-19 pandemic.
Crew Nation is Live Nation’s campaign to support live-entertainment personnel impacted by the corona virus pandemic. BTS had expected to be on tour this year, so the move is a way to support the people who would have played a huge role in making their shows happen. According to the announcement, “This is one of the largest artist donations that has been raised for the Crew Nation fund since its conception.”
BTS mentioned, “If it weren’t for COVID-19, we would have been happily touring across the world with many of our live concert crews by now,” Also, they said “We are aware that a lot of communities need help due to COVID-19, and we wanted to support the music industry crews by making a donation. We hope to meet again on stage very soon.”
What a such wonderful group! Way to go BTS 🙂
