BTS Announces Adjustments For “Map Of The Soul” World Tour
The septet is one of the many groups making adjustments to their activities in light of rising COVID-19 cases.
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, BTS has announced that they will be making changes to their upcoming Map of the Soul world tour. BigHit Entertainment recently released a statement in the current situation of the preparations made for their tour.
The entertainment company cited the recent outbreak as one of the main factors behind the difficulties in preparing for the world tour. As of writing, several countries in the initial tour lineup have been placed under lockdown and enacted precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Although they are currently monitoring the situation, BigHit ultimately announced that there may be a need to make changes to the current tour in order to ensure everyone’s safety. “We are making every effort to proceed with the planned performances if possible,” their statement reads. “However, details on any changes will be provided separately for each region.”
