    She said: “I have seen BTS before at the Love Yourself tour. I’ve always known BTS but didn’t actually get into them until 2017, and when I did it was life-changing.”

    Alexis said she started saving up for the current tour as soon as the other tour finished.

    She said she normally uses a lot of different devices when trying to secure concert tickets. “So we thought, why not try our school lab?” she said.

    She said it was really hard to get the tickets because the website kept crashing.

    Eventually her plan worked, and she bought two floor tickets for the London show.

    She said: “We immediately frantically prayed as we entered our card info and, voila, we got the tickets. I’m really happy with what we got.”

    She said she even bought spare tickets for her friends who are super grateful and happy about it.

    People were amazed by her effort.
