BTS accepted official invitation to play in Saudi Arabia

- The Korean boyband are supporters of UNICEF, the face of their #ENDviolence campaign and spoke at the UN General Assembly last september. They will bring their Love yourself: Speak Yourself tour to Saudi Arabia on october 11, at the request of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

- In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published today, frontman RM spoke about making this decision: "I wouldn't say it was easy, but we were officially invited. It's been a while since we've performed in the Middle East — I guess the last time was 2015 in Dubai."

- Jimin added: "To put it simply, if there's a place where people want to see us, we'll go there. That's really how we feel."

- Nicki Minaj pulled out of a concert in SA in July because of human rights issues, saying she wanted to show support for women's rights, gay rights and freedom of expression.
