K-pop stars Seventeen will share their upcoming concert in Fukuoka, Japan, with fans all over the world with a special movie event, Seventeen Tour “Follow” to Japan: Live Viewings.
The band’s Dec. 16 concert at the PayPay Dome will screen in theaters on multiple continents. Some countries and territories — like South Korea and Australia — will get to watch the concert live, though time zone constraints mean showings in North America, South America, and Europe will take place later in the day. On the East Coast in the U.S., the concert will screen at 5 p.m. ET, while on the West Coast, it’ll air at 2 p.m. PT.
Tickets for the screenings will go on sale Nov. 22 at 10 a.m ET/7 a.m. PT via the film’s website. A list of participating territories and theaters will be shared on Nov. 21.
Seventeen kicked off their “Follow” tour over the summer, and they have dates in Asia scheduled through early 2024. The concerts have featured special showcase performances from the thirteen-person outfit’s three sub-units — the Performance Unit, Vocal Unit, and Hip-Hop Unit — as well as big, full-group blowouts.
On top of their busy touring schedule, Seventeen have also released plenty of music this year. In April, they dropped their first mini-album of the year, FML, and in October, they followed it up with Seventeenth Heaven. The group also shared the 27-track project Always Yours, which featured songs like “24H,” “Fallin Flower,” and “Dream.” (Oh, and they also teamed with Rolling Stone for a special edition zine in April.)
Last year, Seventeen released their debut English-language song, “Darl+ing.” Speaking with Rolling Stone about the track, leader S.Coups said, “In every language we sing in, we try to show Seventeen as we are. And I know that people whose native language is not Korean have to work hard to understand our message. So when we record we want to try as hard as they do when they listen to our music so we can share that together.”
