[USA], May 5 (ANI): K-pop group BTS kick-started their global stadium tour 'Love Yourself: Speak Yourself' at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California on Saturday.

The septet performed their first song 'Dionysus' all dressed in white. The stage was given a resplendent look with two giant panther statues on the sides, reported Variety.

"Since it's a worldwide stadium tour, I think we [should] do something [with] bigger skills. We should [have] new details for the new tour," group leader RM told radio.com, cited by Variety.

The concert was marked with a slew of surprises as Jungkook, a member of the group, flew above the audience and sang 'Euphoria'. Jimin sang 'Serendipity' from inside a transparent bubble.

BTS also had a very special fan in the 60,000 audiences witnessing the concert, Nick Jonas. Jonas kept sharing clips from the concert on his Instagram stories.

"Yesterday I was nervous. This morning I was nervous. Now I am happy," said V, as the septet neared the end of the performance.

Group leader RM said, "This is the most important night of my life. ... Many years later, I'll definitely think about this night."

The Rose Bowl global tour comes after the group dropped their album 'Map of the Soul: Persona' on April 12, which became the third BTS album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in just 11 months.

The group will next perform at Chicago's Soldier Field, East Rutherford's MetLife Stadium and London's Wembley Stadium.

BTS bagged two awards at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards- Top Duo/Group and Best Social Artist on May 1. (ANI)
