The band also launched its “Love Yourself” world tour this year, during which they became the first Korean artists to perform at New York’s Citi Field Stadium. Additional dates for the tour were also announced, which include more than 40 concerts across 20 cities worldwide.

Directed by Park Jun Soo, “Burn the Stage: The Movie will see a limited release in participating theaters, with tickets available for purchase Oct. 22 on the film’s website.
