Statement on the concert

More details are getting unveiled about BTS’ upcoming concert. A representative from BIGHIT Music further said, “In line with the purpose of this performance, Ilgwang was originally selected as the venue for the performance after reviewing various places in Busan from various angles. Based on cooperation with various organizations such as the Busan Metropolitan City, the police, the fire department, and the Korea Railroad Corporation, we were preparing meticulously in terms of operation so that there would be no inconvenience to the audience.”

The same representative added, “However, we decided that it was most important to focus attention on the purpose of the performance to attract the Busan World Expo 2030 and not to dilute the purpose. The location has been changed to create a more pleasant and smooth viewing environment.”

The agency also said, “The venue for the performance will be changed, but various related programs prepared to keep the original purpose will be operated as planned. Live PLAY, which allows you to watch the performance in real time through a large screen, will be held at the outdoor parking lot of the Busan Port International Passenger Terminal so that one can feel the realism of the performance. We are also planning various related events so that the festival atmosphere can spread throughout the city of Busan following the enthusiasm of the performances, and we are preparing to make a concert that can be enjoyed by people all over the world through online live streaming.”

Details of the concert

Talking about the BTS members, they will be holding the concert titled BTS ‘Yet To Come’ in Busan on October 15, 2022, in Ilgwang, Busan. However, reports state that the venue was not suitable for hosting an event at a larger scale with around 100,000 audiences. Moreover, a few lodging companies were also said to have increased the cost of accommodations up to ten times a day before and after the much-awaited performance. As a result of the same, the agency changed the concert venue to the Busan Asiad Main Stadium.
