The South Korean super seven BTS have announced they are giving fans the quarantine livestream we have all been waiting for and honestly it might make the last few months of eating cereal for lunch worth it.
Next month BTS will be beaming themselves right into our homes and back into our lives after having to cancel their world tour in support of new album Map of The Soul: 7.
Last month they hosted the similarly titled ‘BANG BANG CON’ which streamed old concert footage over a two-day event. This time it looks like we’ll be getting the real deal from RM and the gang.
It’s going to be an hour-and-a-half paid live show on the 14th of June at 6PM Korean Time – so that’s 7PM AEST (mark your calendars).
BTS are keeping quiet on the details of exactly what we can expect here but we know it’s going to be a live set from their homes in isolation. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle the transition from stage to sofa.
The entirety of the ‘Map of the Soul’ tour was postponed – along with literally everything else – due to the coronavirus. The tour planned to see the Bantang Boys bounce from Asia to the US and back by way of Europe but with a big lack of Southern Hemisphere dates.
The newly announced livestream will give the BTS ARMY Down Under a chance to see the guys do their thing and all from the comfort of their own homes. Could be worse.
BTS took a bit of a hiatus before releasing Map of the Soul: 7 . The most recent album was released just 10 months after Love Yourself: Tear which doesn’t sound like much of a break unless you’re familiar with their otherwise blistering output. The new record has been praised as their best yet, with critics from across the globe praising its breadth and scope.
BTS will also be appearing a week before this newly-announced set to play YouTube’s virtual graduation celebration where they will be sharing a stage with the likes of the Obama’s, Lady Gaga, and Malala Yousafzi.
