After provoking the possibility that “Hangsang” Y “baseline“, released in 2018 on the mixtape “Hope World”, are in the setlist of lollapalooza this Thursday, July 28, J Hope gave more details. The member of bts will perform for the first time in a solo show at the North American festival this Sunday, July 31.
Confirmation that J-Hope would be one of the festival’s headlining artists came in early June, before BTS announced their hiatus. Shortly after, the artist released his first solo album “Jack in the Box”, which contains the singles “MORE” Y “Arson”.

Lollapalooza will take place on American soil, but weverse, a platform that connects fans with artists, announced that the BTS member’s concert will be streamed for free through the platform. To access it is enough to have an account in the social network.
