Fans begin lining up for BTS concert in Fort Worth

Fans of the popular boy band, BTS, are ready to fill the Fort Worth Convention Center. The group from Korea has two sold-out shows this weekend.

BTS is a Korean boy band that in a very short time has become one of the most popular acts in the U.S.

Fans are keeping an eye on the Fort Worth Convention Center. It's two days until the concert. When a line starts to form, they want to be in it.

Lexi Scavetta is in Fort Worth from Manhattan. She plans to see another five shows on the tour. Getting tickets can be a challenge and expensive.

"I didn't even get it myself. I had help. That one was $250, but I really wanted to come to this show,” she said. “So I spent the money spent like $800."

Elena Hunter drove from Springfield, Missouri, with her mom and best friend. They've been here since 4 a.m. Wednesday.

"Every two to three hours, we'll be at our hotel and say we should go check the convention center to see what's happening over there,” she said.

"You’re in front of the line. When you get in there, you have a better chance of getting near the stage and closer to them,” said fan Lexie Trent. “I don't feel like they're real yet."

Fort Worth won't allow fans to camp out. Fans can expect to get wristbands starting at 10 a.m. the day of the concerts, although the lines are expected long before then.

The convention center says Fort Worth police will control access into the building. Security will be tight.
