BTS: 'Permission To Dance On Stage In Seoul' Concert Movie Will Be Broadcast Worldwide In Real Time With Theatrical Release
The biggest K-pop act in the world, BTS will be seen on the big screen in theatres all over the world on March 12, with the release of "BTS Permission to Dance on Stage - Seoul: Live Viewing", the live broadcast of the eponymous concert. It will be the first of its kind event where a concert from South Korea will be broadcast live on worldwide cinema.
The live broadcast, which will be three hours long, will feature the greatest hit songs from BTS from across their catalog.
The theatre concert events will be on sale on February 22 in Oceania, Europe, and North and South America and on February 24 in Asia. The event will feature all the seven Bangtan Boys including V, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, Suga, RM, and J-Hope. The line-up will comprise the band's greatest hits, including "Permission to Dance", "Butter", and "Dynamite".
Trafalgar Releasing will present the broadcast, which will be produced and directed by Big Hit Music and HYBE. CEO of Trafalgar Releasing Marc Allenby said that they look forward
to continue their longstanding relationship with BTS and HYBE with this world-first live cinema broadcast coming directly from Seoul to cinemas worldwide on March 12.
Allenby added that the Bangtan Boys have always had a special relationship with their fans, and Trafalgar Releasing takes pride in bringing them closer than ever via BTS's awe-inspiring stage show live on the big screen.
According to a release shared by representatives of BTS, the exact times of screenings will be revealed later, though reportedly the ARMY in various countries will be seeing the same thing at the same time. There could naturally be some tape delays in certain regions, but for the majority of the time, it will be a shared live experience, which is the aim of the event.
BTS had also graced cinemas in major countries with their 2020 title "Break the Silence: The Movie", and "Bring the Soul: The Movie, Love Yourself in Seoul and Burn the Stage: The Movie". All of these theatrical efforts combinedly earned more than $50 million in worldwide ticket sales.
The live theatrical release comes across as the best news for the ARMY, as they don't have to be physically present in Seoul to catch their beloved K-pop idols live in action. Though that is what everyone aspires to see more than anything else, it may not always be feasible to catch offline concerts, especially in times like now, with restrictions on air travel still in place in various nations.
