Following the multiple severe issues previously revolving around BTS free global concert 2022 in Busan, HYBE and BIGHIT MUSIC finally stepped in with a venue change. Check out the following report for the complete story.
HYBE Decided to Change Venue for BTS Free Global Concert 2022 in Busan
On September 2, Korean media reported that HYBE had announced the venue change for BTS free global concert 2022 in Busan. Following the previous issues and controversies regarding the concert’s venue and regulations, the company finally decided to take action.
Through an official announcement, HYBE and BIGHIT MUSIC decided to step in and change the global concert 2022 venue from Ilgwang Special Stage to Busan Asiad Main Stadium. The company decided to make this change after various issues and concerns from fans regarding Ilgwang Special Stage and its current circumstances.
“HYBE let us know that because of concerns over accessibility and safety, they’d like to change the venue.”Busan Official.
25,000 People Will Watch from the Auxiliary Stadium
Originally built for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, Busan Asiad Main Stadium has a capacity of 53,769 spectator seats. However, while it can hold up to 100,000 people in total, Busan has reduced the number of invitations to attend BTS 2022 free global concert from 100,000 to 50,000 people.
According to Korean media, 25,000 audiences would have to watch the performance from Busan auxiliary arena. That is because Busan must protect the condition of the field’s lawn and grass.
“Regarding the main stadium, we have signed a contract with the agency to open only the stands under the condition of grass protection.”Busan City official.
Therefore, attendees who cannot enter the main stadium can witness the performance via a large screen from the auxiliary stadium.
Previously, BTS could not conduct their concert in Busan Asiad Main Stadium in 2019 due to the same lawn protection reason. Therefore, they used the same auxiliary stadium instead.
BTS Free Global Concert 2022 Busan LIVE PLAY & Live Streaming Available
Indeed, HYBE and the Busan government may have decided to reduce the audience invitation to maintain the concert’s safety. However, fans can still enjoy BTS performances via a LIVE PLAY event. It is live streaming of the BTS global concert via the Outdoor Parking Lot of Busan Port International Passenger Terminal.
Along with the LIVE PLAY event, the committee will broadcast the concert via online streaming. That way, international fans can still enjoy WORLD EXPO 2030 BUSAN KOREA CONCERT BTS <Yet to Come> in BUSAN regardless of the place.
The Complete Issue and Controversy Regarding the Previous Venue
Previously, BTS free global concert 2022 to support World Expo 2030 Busan bidding process had triggered various issues and controversies.
Aside from the fact that the Ilgwang Special Stage location has extreme traffic even under normal circumstances, the venue itself is apparently underdeveloped.
Fans were distraught specifically because Ilgwang Stage had only 1 gate to accommodate 100,000 attendees. And since the seats would be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis, it would exceptionally be dangerous for the attendees to have such small access for such a large number of people.
Moreover, the venue gate will start opening at 9 AM for a concert that starts at 6 PM. So this becomes another severe issue, particularly after knowing that no food allowed inside the venue. Meanwhile, since the Ilgwang Special Stage location is somewhat underdeveloped, there were not many restaurants available around the area. So a long 9-hour wait with no food allowed inside has become a severe issue for the attendees.
That is why fans are relieved now that HYBE has stepped in with the venue change for BTS free global concert 2022 in Busan.
👤 As concerns and controversies grew, Busan and HYBE eventually decided to change the venue, revealing the concert would take place at the Busan Asiad Main Stadium, which has 53k seats. Asiad Main Stadium has 72 entry/exits and 64 bathrooms. HYBE said, “Our top priority is + pic.twitter.com/a8fkrt6zN6— bora 💜 (slow) (@modooborahae) September 2, 2022
