K-pop sensations BTS will broadcast one of their upcoming stadium shows in Seoul, South Korea live in cinemas in select countries. The concert film is entitled Love Yourself: Speak Yourself [The Final]. You can check out the film’s trailer below.
BTS’ 27 October concert at Seoul’s Olympic Stadium – one of three ‘Love Yourself: Speak Yourself’ shows at the venue – will be broadcast simultaneously in cinemas across several Asian countries, including Singapore, Thailand and Japan. It will also be screened across the United States, but at a delayed timing due to time differences. Visit the band’s official website for tickets and further information.
“This momentous event will unite fans around the globe in celebrating the group’s most loved hits and unprecedented international fame,” distributor Fathom Events said in a press release.
Earlier in 2019, Fathom and BTS launched Love Yourself in Seoul, a concert film of the boyband’s 2018 ‘Love Yourself’ world tour, in cinemas around the globe. The movie grossed over $11 million and broke the record for “biggest worldwide one-day box office ever for a cinema event,” according to Forbes.
Love Yourself: Speak Yourself [The Final] is the latest concert film from the septet, following August’s Bring the Soul: The Movie. Unlike the upcoming concert film, Bring the Soul: The Movie combined live performances, interviews and candid footage of the group.
BTS recently returned from a well-earned “extended period of rest,” putting to rest rumours that the boy band was breaking up. During their break, member J-Hope teamed up with Latin pop singer Becky G on the song ‘Chicken Noodle Soup.’
Last week, BTS performed a controversial concert in Saudi Arabia. The boy band defended their decision to perform in the country in an earlier interview, with member Jimin explaining, “To put it simply, if there’s a place where people want to see us, we’ll go there. That’s really how we feel.”
