Big Hit Music, BTS’s label, announced that they are canceling the K-pop group’s planned Map of the Soul world tour.

In a statement, they said, “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.”

There’s some good news, though. Big Hit Music said that they are looking at other options.

The statement adds, “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.”

The planned Map of the Soul world tour was supposed to run from April to September 2020, but the 39-date concert was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was planned to begin in South Korea and cover North America, the United Kingdom, and Europe before finishing in Japan.

BTS has performed in a series of online concerts, such as the Map of the Soul ON: E held last October.
