BTS Officially Cancels Their Postponed “Map Of The Soul” World Tour
BTS’s “Map of the Soul” tour was originally scheduled to kick off in April 2020, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group was ultimately forced to postpone the entire tour. In April of last year, Big Hit Music announced that they planned to reschedule the tour, but due to the unpredictable nature of the situation, they were not yet able to provide new dates.
On August 20, Big Hit Music announced that the tour has now been officially cancelled.
The agency’s full English statement is as follows:
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.
