Suga fans camp out for days for best seats to see BTS member in concert
Fans of Suga of BTS with tickets to his concert at Allstate Arena in Rosemont camped out in order to secure the best spot Friday morning.

ROSEMONT, Ill. (WLS) -- There's a lot of excitement happening outside the Allstate Arena in Rosemont.

Hundreds waited Friday morning to get good seats to see Suga, a member of BTS.

One of the first fans in line for a wristband has been camping out here since Sunday. And this is not her first rodeo, she also camped out for Harry Styles at the United Center!

She along with a couple of hundreds of fans all lined up this week for South Korean sensation, SUGA also known as AGUST D from the popular boy band BTS.

This is his first solo world tour, and second concert at Allstate Arena.

Fans have been lining up all week, not for tickets, but to get that elusive wristband.

That wristband will have a number in it. That number determines your place in line to get in the doors and as close to the stage in the pit as possible.

This whole experience is not cheap, some folks spent upwards of $600 or more to be here, but fans tell me it's all worth it.

"It's AGUST D SUGA, I want to see him, I love BTS, and I just want to be there I love his music," Caydence Simpson, who has been camping out since Sunday, said.

"Having a good view, I know how his stage is set-up, barricade is really a special place to be and have a great view," Carys Blockton, who has been camping out since Monday, said.

The rapper has two more shows Friday and Saturday nights. Another large group of fans lined up for days for just merchandise, which apparently sells out very quickly.
