BTS’s Map of the Soul Tour was set to kickoff in Seoul on April 11, April 12, April 18, and April 19, but the concerts were canceled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The North American leg of the band’s tour was set to begin in April 2020 and continue through June 2020 but was postponed. To give fans the opportunity to experience a BTS concert this month, the group will put on a free concert series on YouTube called “Bang Bang Con.”
BTS’s ‘Bang Bang Con’ will help bring positivity to ARMY
This is not the first time the BTS members have done their best to cheer up those around the world affected by the coronavirus. In March 2020, the K-pop group appeared on a special primetime episode of The Late Late Show Starring James Corden called “Homefest.”
The episode encouraged viewers to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and united people across the world through music. For the virtual special, BTS performed their 2019 hit “Boy With Luv” from South Korea. Now, BTS’s upcoming virtual concert series will help give ARMY around the world the next best thing to seeing BTS live.
