“I’ve just met with the promoter for the BTS event and we are in the negotiation phase. Our hope is to get BTS here for Visit Malaysia 2020,” Syed Saddiq said during PSM (Malaysia Stadium Corporation) Open Day at Putrajaya.
“I’ve tasked Tan Sri Tony Fernandes (chairman of PSM) to deliver and this is one of his KPIs (Key Performance Index),” he said as quoted by MMO.
Syed Saddiq believes that with BTS concert in Malaysia, the country will be able to boost its entertainment industry by making the country a destination for entertainment.
“Recently the biggest entertainment event we had was the Ed Sheeran concert and that went well. If people see that we’re capable of organising world class events it will attract investors.”
“I do not want to be left behind Singapore anymore. We’ve seen fans will fly from all over to Singapore (for events) because we’re not competitive and we’re losing out on this revenue,” Syed Saddiq added.
Malaysian ARMYs are ecstatic after receiving the news and they have been expressing their excitement on social media.
