BTS’s Busan concert will be livestreamed and streamed for free
BTS announced that their highly anticipated upcoming concert “Yet To Come” in Busan will be streamed live on Weverse and South Korean TV for free.
On September 20, Big Hit Music took to BTS’ official Weverse page to announce that the upcoming concert will be live streamed for free on the fan community platform.
The concert will be streamed in real time starting October 15 at 6 p.m. KST (5 a.m. EST), with subtitles available in eight languages, including English, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish. Fans will have the option to watch the concert live via Weverse’s mobile or smart apps.
The free concert in Busan supports the city’s bid to host the 2030 World Expo. The performance will take place at the Busan Ilgwang Special Stage in Gijang-gun. The date is also one day after the end of the Busan International Film Festival.
Organizer Big Hit Music said the in-person concert is expected to attract 100,000 people. An in-person live broadcast LIVE PLAY will welcome around 10,000 people at the outdoor parking lot of the Busan International Port Passenger Terminal.
Although the concert is free, reservations will be required. The concert kicks off BTS’ activities as ambassadors for World Expo 2030 in Busan, Korea. At the ambassador appointment ceremony last month, BTS said, “We will make extra efforts not only to support the bid, but also to promote the beautiful nature and culture of the Republic of Korea to the world.”
As a group, BTS is currently on hiatus to allow the members to focus on solo material. However, they still seem to be somewhat active given an upcoming cookbook and the recent release of their collaboration with Benny Blanco and Snoop Dogg, “Bad decisions.” Also earlier in August, Swedish duo Galantis announced their own collaboration with the band.
At the end of July, rapper BTS J Hope made history as the first South Korean artist to headline Lollapalooza, performing tracks from the BTS catalog as well as his recent debut solo album, jack in the box. Earlier this week, J-Hope announced a limited edition vinyl pressing of the album.
