SEOUL -- K-pop band BTS will meet global fans by broadcasting its Seoul concert, the final leg of this year's world tour, live through a smartphone video-sharing app and selected cinemas in seven countries.

The seven-member band broadcast its concert live at Saudi Arabia's King Fahd International Stadium on October 11. BTS' Seoul concert is a three-day event scheduled to be held at Seoul Olympic Stadium on October 26.

Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement on Wednesday that the first-day concert in Seoul will be aired through V Live, a smartphone video content platform, as pay-per-view content.
