The announcement comes a few weeks after Big Hit announced BTS' North American leg of their Map of the Soul tour would be postponed.
"The BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR – NORTH AMERICA, originally scheduled to take place from April 25th to June 6th, will be rescheduled to a later date. All tickets will be honored for the new dates. Information on new show dates will be shared as soon as possible," Big Hit said in a statement.
Before they postponed the North American tour dates, Big Hit also canceled the group's Seoul concerts, which were supposed to take place in April.
As fans wait for another update on BTS' tour, they can look forward to Bang Bang Con. The event will be great for fans both old and new, as it will offer them the opportunity to relive BTS' concerts all over again or watch them for the very first time.
