BTS wrapped its series of concerts called the "2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings Tour." The last leg of this concert tour was held in Sydney, Australia and as expected, the event was as successful as the Asian stops.

With the group's sold-out concerts across Asia and Australia, BTS is unquestionably one of the hottest Korean boy bands in the world right now. According to The Korea Herald, throughout the tour which also includes stops in the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong, the group performed for a total of around 90,000 fans.

And as if this was not enough to prove their popularity, BTS also recently bagged the ‘Top Social Artist' Award at the recently concluded 2017 Billboard Music Awards that was held on May 21 in Las Vegas.

The seven-member band beat out the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande for the said award. With the win, the award serves as BTS' first-ever American award in the field of music. Moreover, the occasion was the first high-profile event that the group has attended in the U.S.

Commenting on their success at the BBMA's, BTS told Billboard via email, "Everything about the BBMAs was a dream come true for the band." Adding that, "Some of us grew up listening to Celine Dion and there she was, performing ‘My Heart Will Go On' on the stage right in front of us! And Cher! Unbelievable."

In any case, BTS is set to celebrate its 4th debut anniversary in June so the members are preparing something for their fans. The yearly celebration is called the "BTS Festa" and it usually consists of special song release, guesting on radio shows, fun time with the ARMYs through special fan meetings and more.

However, this year, it appears that it will be something different. On their Instagram, BTS posted some hints about the #2017BTSFESTA but it seems that fans just got more confused as the clues are simply nine puzzle pieces that are hard to figure out. 

Meanwhile, as BTS concludes the Asian tour, it is now gearing up for a series of performances in Japan. The Japanese tour is expected to end just before the ‘BTS Festa' is to take place.
