first_img Login/Register With: Fans of South Korean boy band, BTS, started setting up camp outside the FirstOntario Centre more than 24 hours before their Thursday night show. (CBC News) Facebook Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement Hamilton police are making special preparations and studying strategies used by U.S. services ahead of an expected flood of fans for international boy band sensation BTS.The seven-member South Korean group, also known as Bangtan Boys, is playing three sold out shows at the FirstOntario Centre Thursday, Saturday and Sunday night and already a ragged string of more than 50 ardent supporters were setting up along York Boulevard Wednesday afternoon with plans of camping out overnight to secure prime spot on the floor.The diehard campers are hoping for first dibs on bracelets to be released Thursday morning that will denote who gets into the venue and when. Police say they’re aware of the importance of that order and believe tolerating with the overnight lineup would be better than allowing the chaos of a box-office rush.
