The inability to perform in front of live fans did not prevent Big Hit Labels from delivering a musical New Year’s Eve celebration. Thursday night Korean time, the label group’s roster of immensely popular came together for a streaming concert entitled “2021 New Year’s Eve Live.”
At roughly 3 hours in length, the show featured performances by Big Hit Labels acts LEE HYUN, BUMZU, NU’EST, BTS, GFRIEND, TOMORROW X TOGETHER and ENHYPEN. Steve Aoki, Lauv, and Halsey appeared via video and/or hologram to perform collaborations with BTS.
The show, which featured a “we’ve connected” theme, also included hologram collaboration performances with the late Shin Hae-chul.
To best replicate the experience of attending the celebration in person, the event included multiple streaming angles as well as a meet & greet lounge. Viewers were able to chat throughout the show, furthering the notion of connection.
Following the event, Big Hit issued a collection of photos:
