BTS to host online concert in June

news May 19, 2020

South Korea's biggest music group BTS have announced a live-streamed concert. The show, titled BANG BANG CON The Live, is set to stream globally this June. Running for 90 minutes, the show will see the band perform live from a single room.

To the dismay of their 136 million fans (yes, you read that correctly), the K-pop supergroup had to cancel their Map of the Soul world tour this year, due to coronavirus restrictions. Previously, they had performed at Times Square on New Year's Eve and at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. The band has previously hosted an online music festival, Bang Bang Con, where archival footage from their live concerts were streamed to more than 50 million viewers. BTS is undisputedly South Korea's most successful (and highest paid) music group, with an income of $US57 million. They're also the first group to have three No. 1 albums in a year since The Beatles, they're that huge.

With K-pop fans scattered across the globe, BTS's BANG BANG CON The Live is set to be a major international music event. Tickets to this online performance will be available for pre-order on 1 June at BTS's shop via the Weverse app.
