It’s dynamite news for BTS fans.

The Korean-pop supergroup’s concert in Seoul on March 12 is set to be broadcast live at select cinemas across the globe.

That concert will be one of three performed by BTS at the Seoul Olympic Stadium next month. The concerts are part of the “Permission to Dance on Stage” tour that has been disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The seven-member group is also performing at the venue on March 10 and March 13.

The shows mark BTS’ first live performances in front of an audience in Seoul since October 2019.

Known for songs such as Dynamite and Butter, BTS has been nominated at the Grammys for best pop duo/group performance in both of the last two years.

BTS has six No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart, tying them for the fifth most of all time.
