Though Post Malone will be headlining, it’s safe to say much of Times Square will be filled with BTS’ ARMY on New Year’s Eve this year: the South Korean septet will be performing at Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest to ring in 2020 in the heart of New York City.
Dick Clark Productions and ABC, which airs the annual event, announced that BTS will be performing alongside Post Malone, Sam Hunt, Alanis Morissette, and the cast of the Broadway musical Jagged Little Pill during the event. This year’s Rockin’ Eve will also highlight the biggest YouTube trends of the decade, with the video streaming platform sponsoring the event.
BTS pre-recorded a performance for the New Year’s Eve event that brought in 2018, but will attend the main event in Times Square for the first time this Dec. 31. Their appearance in the States will negate their attending of South Korean broadcaster MBC’s annual year-end Gayo Daejejun.
Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s Eve will air live on Dec. 31 at 8 p.m. local time on ABC. Dick Clark Productions is owned by Valence Media, which also owns Billboard.
