Sad news for ARMY’s all around the world! BTS has officially cancelled their highly-anticipated “Map of the Soul” World Tour which was initially postponed in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Originally scheduled to kick off in April 2020 starting off in Seoul, South Korea, the tour was slated to stop at various locations including: Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, Toronto, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington D.C., London, Berlin, Barcelona and Japan. BTS’ company, BigHit Music, were hopeful that the tour would be able to continue soon but due to the ever-changing nature of the current pandemic, they made the difficult decision to officially cancel it. Take a look at the full statement below:
This is BIGHIT MUSIC.
We would like to provide some information regarding “BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR.”
Our company has worked hard to resume preparations for the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR, knowing that all fans have been waiting eagerly and long for the tour. However, due to changing circumstances beyond our control, it has become difficult to resume performances at the same scale and timeline as previously planned. Therefore we must announce the cancellation of the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR.
The tour’s concerts in Seoul were previously canceled in February of last year, followed by the postponement of the North American leg in March; dates in Europe and Japan were postponed prior to the start of ticket sales in those regions. We regret that we must now inform you of the formal cancellation of the tour. For fans who have reserved tickets for the North American shows, you will receive an email from your original point of purchase regarding refunds.
Once again, please allow us to offer our sincere apology to all fans who have waited for the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR to resume. We are working to prepare a viable schedule and performance format that can meet your expectations, and we will provide updated notices as soon as possible.
