Block off October 15 on your calendars, ARMYs. BIGHIT MUSIC has just confirmed that BTS is holding a free global concert on that day as the official ambassadors of the World Expo 2030 BUSAN.
Earlier today, Aug. 24, the South Korean entertainment company announced on social media that BTS' upcoming concert is titled "Yet to Come in BUSAN" and is set to take place on October 15, 6 p.m. (5 p.m. in Manila time), at the Busan Ilkwang Special Stage.

Although BIGHIT has not disclosed the details on how to score tickets for the face-to-face performance, they will soon be available through Interpark, the event's official ticket agent in Korea. The company is expected to accommodate 10,000 people in the venue.
Meanwhile, those who won't be able to fly to Busan can watch the K-pop supergroup's live-streamed concert on Weverse, ZEPETTO, NAVER NOW, and LIVE PLAY.
"Yet to Come in BUSAN" is part of the bid of Busan, South Korea to host the 2030 World Expo, a six-month-long event that features "the world's three mega-events," including the Olympics and World Cup.
The concert also marks RM, Jin, Suga, J-hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook's first global performance since they announced their plans to pursue solo projects last June.
