ARMY will have plenty to do on the Las Vegas Strip for the two weeks that BTS is in town, including staying in BTS-themed rooms at some of the Strip's popular hotels. Those include:
- Bellagio Hotel
- ARIA Resort
- Vdara Hotel
- MGM Grand
- Mandalay Bay
- Park MGM
- NoMad Las Vegas
- The Mirage
- New York-New York Hotel
- Luxor Hotel
- Excalibur Hotel
Guests at these hotels between April 6 and April 18 will be able to deck their rooms out in discounted BTS swag, discounted merchandise, and exclusive keepsakes.
To kick off the BTS mania, the Bellagio will put on a fountain show dedicated to BTS and exclusively featuring their music on Thursday at 8 p.m. The new display features two of the group's major hits, "Butter" and "Dynamite." It will run in heavy rotation during BTS' Las Vegas show run and will become part of the fountain's ongoing show rotation thereafter, a Bellagio spokesperson said.
Accompanying the sold-out shows at Allegiant Stadium will be a live play at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, where the Allegiant Stadium show will be broadcast in real time on the same dates.
Official tour merchandise will also be available at MGM Grand Garden Arena from April 8 through 17, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, with express booths open on the BTS show dates.
JEWEL Nightclub at ARIA Resort will host the exclusive "PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE" after parties on April 15 and 16 from 10:30 p.m. to 4 a.m. to "extend the excitement of the concert."
