Big Hit Entertainment announced on May 14 that BTS was preparing to give a "multi-view BTS concert experience" that will feel like a "lifelike BTS concert" digitally via Weverse on June 14. The event was meant to fill the void of BTS' Map of the Soul tour, which was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
BTS previously tried their hand at giving a virtual performance on April 18 and 19 when they graced fans' screens for a two-day digital show. The boys teased Bang Bang Con: The Live at the end of their last online performance when a message appeared on the screen that read: "In June, BTS is coming back to ARMYs’ rooms again."
Over 750,000 people from around the globe tuned in to watch Bang Bang Con: The Live, and the event was a hit with fans. On top of old favorites, BTS also performed Map of the Soul: 7 tracks "Jamais Vu", "Respect," and "Friends," for the first time. They even gave sneak peeks of "Ugh!" and "Zero O'Clock," as well as a remix of their Persona single, "Boy With Luv," which featured choreography with light-up umbrellas.
