BTS Reveal 2020 ‘Map of the Soul’ World Tour Following Touring Hiatus
The boyband dominating the K-Pop industry, BTS, have announced Map of the Soul World Tour, which will hit nine stadiums across North America this spring.
They’ll kick-off the trek with four dates in their native Seoul, South Korea at Olympic Stadium this April before heading overseas to North America. The West Coast will open the 15-date tour with a two-night gig at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. From there, they’ll play the Rose Bowl Stadium in Los Angeles, Dallas’ Cotton Bowl Stadium, the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, and Atlanta’s Bobby Dodd Stadium. Then, they’ll head north for shows at East Rutherford’s MetLife Stadium, FedEx Field in Washington, D.C., and Toronto’s Rogers Centre before wrapping-up at Chicago’s Soldier Field on June 5 and 6. Following the North American run, BTS will head to Japan and cross Europe.
BTS will be touring in support of Map of the Soul: 7, which is due February 21 via Big Hit Entertainment and Columbia. The record will follow Korean-based albums Love Yourself: Tear from 2018 and 2016’s Wings. Last year, the group also dropped the EP Map of the Soul: Persona, which shot to the top of both U.S. and Korean music charts for tracks “Boy with Luv” and “Make It Right.”
Last August, Big Hit Entertainment announced that the band would head out on an “extended hiatus” after six straight years on tour. Since they emerged in the U.S. music scene, the group already broke records as the first K-pop band to play a U.S. stadium. Their fan base has been growing tremendously, and in order to combat the high-demand, Big Hit Entertainment announced a new ticket lottery process. Fans must purchase an official ARMY fan club membership in order to enter a raffle to access a selected allotment of floor seats and early access tickets.
In order to gain presale ticket access for the upcoming tour, fans must join BTS’ ARMY Membership and register for Ticketmater’s Verified Fan to have the chance to score tickets during the ARMY fanclub sale on February 5.
