BTS' Jung Kook to Join Global Citizen Festival Lineup to Make One of His First US Solo Appearances
NEW YORK (AP) Jung Kook of BTS will join the Global Citizen Festival lineup, making one of his first live solo appearances at the Sept. 23 concert in New Yorks Central Park.
The record-setting K-Pop singer, whose debut solo single Seven hit No. 1 in the United States and around the world this summer, will join Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Anitta and Megan Thee Stallion as headliners of the event designed to encourage supporters, especially those in Gen Z, to take action on extreme poverty, gender inequality, climate change and other issues.
The festival sheds light on important causes and drives action and Im happy to take part in it, Jung Kook said in a statement. I cant wait to perform in front of many people at the Great Lawn in Central Park.
