BTS tour comes to theaters


K-pop superstars BTS’s upcoming concerts in Seoul will be broadcast live at movie theaters in six Asian countries, the band’s management agency said on Wednesday.

With three days of concerts in the band’s home country, set for Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, BTS will wrap up their “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour.

The Saturday concert will be broadcast on V Live, the live broadcasting service of the biggest Korean internet portal, Naver, according to Big Hit Entertainment. The 1,500 “coins” needed to stream the concert cost 33,000 won ($28).

The Sunday concert will be broadcast live at designated movie theaters in seven Asian nations, including Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand.

In U.S. theaters, the concert will be played a few hours later due to the time difference, according to Big Hit.

The final show will not be shown in theaters, in order to keep the experience special for concertgoers, it said.

The world tour kicked off in August 2018 and brought the band to major cities in the United States, Europe, Asia and even to the capital of Saudi Arabia earlier this month for historic music performances.
