How to Watch BTS’ ‘Map of the Soul ON:E’ Concert
On Oct. 10 and Oct. 11, BTS will put on an online concert called “Map of the Soul ON:E.” The two concerts follow BTS’ success with their online concert “Bang Bang Con The Live” from June. Here is how ARMY around the world can watch BTS’ highly-anticipated “Map of the Soul ON:E” concerts.

Big Hit Entertainment first announced the “Map of the Soul ON:E” concert in August. Originally, the label, BTS, and fans were hopeful that a small number of fans would be able to attend the concerts in person in addition to an online showing. However, because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the concerts will only be able to be viewed via an online livestream.
According to a press release from Big Hit Entertainment, the title of the concert “signifies a ONE and only ‘ONline Edition’ concert.” The company also revealed that the concerts will each run for about two hours.
“We have prepared never-before-seen stages and various setlists for fans who must have felt disappointed by the cancellation of offline concerts due to COVID-19. Some songs will also be given variations across the two days. We hope you look forward to ‘BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E,'” Big Hit Entertainment said in a press release.
