Globally popular K-pop group BTS will perform on the Los Angeles stop of this year's iHeartRadio Jingle Ball Tour, the largest year-end radio show in the United States, organizers said Tuesday.

The septet was included in a star-studded lineup for the LA show scheduled for Dec. 3, the iHeartRadio, the country's largest online radio platform, announced on its website and social media.

The South Korean band will open the show performing its mega-hit songs "Dynamite" and "Butter," it added.

Other big names to headline the LA stop are Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, The Kid LAROI, Saweetie, Black Eyed Peas, Tate McRae, Bazzi, and Dixie D'Amelio, according to the radio.

BTS took part in the annual music festival in 2019 and an online version of the event last year due to the new coronavirus pandemic.

This year's Jingle Ball Tour will kick off in Dallas on Nov. 30 and continue in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, New York, Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Atlanta and Miami until Dec. 19.

Also in LA, BTS is scheduled to throw its first in-person concerts in two years.

"BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE - LA" will be held at SoFi Stadium on Nov. 27 and 28 and Dec. 1 and 2, according to its agency Big Hit Music. (Yonhap)
