BTS will hold a free live performance in Busan later this year to support the South Korean city’s bid to host the upcoming 2030 World Expo.

The septet will perform on the Busan Ilgwang Special Stage for their special “Yet to Come in Busan” concert on October 15 at 6 p.m. KST. A “live game” event, where fans can watch the show in real time on the big screen, will be held at the outdoor parking lot of the Busan International Port Passenger Terminal at the same time.

Tickets for both of these in-person events will be free. They will be awarded via a two-round giveaway lottery, a Big Hit Music representative told the Herald of Korea. Fans interested in attending the event will need to register through the Interpark ticketing site, and in its Weverse announcement, Big Hit Music also noted that fans may still have to pay Interpark’s booking fee for the event. .

Besides the in-person events, the special “Yet to Come” concert will be streamed live via Weverse, ZEPETO, and Naver Now for free. Details on booking tickets for the in-person concert, live game event, and online stream are expected to be released in the coming weeks.

BTS has been named an ambassador for Busan’s bid to host the World City Expo in July. The city’s mayor recently formally proposed to the presidential office to grant BTS an alternative — but not an exemption — to the country’s military service mandate.

Mayor Park Heong-joon cited BTS’s role as an ambassador in his proposal, noting that an “aggressive promotional campaign” by the group would give the city a competitive edge amid “increasingly fierce” competition. to host Expo 2030, by Yonhap News Agency.

BTS is currently on hiatus from group activities. In July, member J-hope released his first solo album “Jack in the Box” and staged a historic Lollapalooza track shortly after.
