K-pop sensation BTS may have been forced to postpone their Map of the Soul world tour this year because of the coronavirus outbreak, but their legion of fans (otherwise known as ARMY) still have plenty to look forward to. The boy band is set to stage a live online concert on June 14 at 6pm KST (5pm Singapore time), and tickets go on sale today!
Called Bang Bang Con: The Live, the virtual gig comes a day after the septet’s seventh anniversary, and will allow V, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, and Jungkook to reconnect with their followers at a time when lockdown measures and travel restrictions are keeping people socially distanced. The show will run for approximately 90 minutes via livestreaming on Big Hit’s fan community platform, Weverse, and will be hosted by the group right from their own home.
The upcoming concert follows a highly successful online music festival back in April, where BTS devoted a weekend to streaming footage from previous live performances and fan meet-and-greets. The event garnered more than 50 million views and over 2 million concurrent viewers in total, and you can expect the show on June 14 to be just as huge (if not more), so run, don’t walk to get those tickets on the Weverse Shop.
