The BTS 'Map Of The Soul ON:E' Concert Details Will Get ARMYs Pumped

Updated:

After a canceled world tour due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic led to months of not performing live in front of ARMYs, BTS had plans to return to the live concert scene (albeit, a socially-distanced scene) in October. However, due to the resurgence of COVID in Seoul, the group postponed their in-person event for everyone’s safety. But the concert will go on, and BTS' Map Of The Soul ON:E concert details reveal this concert is shaping up to be BTS’ best virtual concert yet. Thankfully, it's happening really soon, so it won't be long before everyone sees what the group has been planning all this time.

BTS and ARMY have a close relationship, so not being able to see each other in person has been hard on both sides. This year, BTS was supposed to tour the world in support of their Map of the Soul: 7 album, which they released in February, but like many artists, they were forced to postpone their shows until 2021 in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. As of now, they haven't announced their rescheduled tour dates, so fans have been waiting to find out when they'll see BTS live in concert again.

On Aug. 13, Big Hit announced BTS’ two-day Map of the Soul ON:E live concert. "After a long wait, you can finally look forward to performances of MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 at the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL : ONE concert," the company said during the briefing, according to a fan translation. The event was supposed to take place both offline and online, but as of Aug. 27, the in-person performance has been postponed indefinitely. ARMYs aren’t sweating it too much because they value safety over everything else, and they still have the virtual concert to look forward to. Plus, a newly-announced online exhibition that will replace the offline portion of the show.
