BTS has been forced to cancel their Map Of The Soul: 7 tour.
The 'Map Of The Soul: 7' album was released to widespread acclaim, boosting the K-Pop group's standing as a truly international phenomenon.
The subsequent tour was due to kick off in April 2020, an ambitious undertaking that aims to include 18 countries around the world.
Sadly, coronavirus intervened, caused BTS to push their plans back by several months.
Now Big Hit Music have confirmed that the tour has been officially cancelled, due to the impact of the pandemic.

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."
