Many ARMY showed up to Chicago to support J-Hope’s solo performance, which J-Hope thanked them for.
… and above all I want to thank our ARMY who made yesterday’s stage shine even more brightly
And ARMY themselves were proud of how they transformed the event safely into Hobipalooza.
hobipalooza armys thank you for giving him the loudest cheers today and for being disciplined 🏻

And even Dispatch captured pictures of some of the ARMY who picked up trash during the festival.
ARMY felt understandably proud of their fandom’s kindness, especially since many fans reported seeing a large amount of ARMY collecting trash.
I love us https://t.co/SVP7Q75WMN

Some ARMY pointed out that Lollapalooza had actually incentivized collecting trash by offering free T-shirts.
While free T-shirts are motivating, as many ARMY pointed out, ARMY have often made an effort to be kind and polite at any concert they attend.
Ok this is nice but just fyi for people thinking it’s because armys are super nice/organized, it’s because there was a thing at the festival where if you fill up a a garbage bag of recyclables you get a free T-shirt

Ultimately, ARMY are really proud of their fandom’s kindness and respect.
I’m so proud of Hobi but I’m equally as proud and as grateful to ARMY who went to Hobipalooza to support and cheer so loudly for him. And now this? You guys are the best! I love you ARMY! 🥺😭💜
