Here's some great news, BTS Army cadets! The Batang Boys will be coming to a city near you soon! The South Korean K-pop sensations BTS have just revealed their first lineup of dates and venues for its 2020 world tour, in support of their new album, 'Map of the Soul: 7.'

BTS's management company Big Hit Entertainment made the huge announcement on January 22 (KST) -  they revealed that the 7-member group would embark on a brand-new tour called the "BTS Map of the Soul Tour" starting in April 2020.

The BTS Map of the Soul Tour will begin at the group's South Korean home base, Seoul, from April 11 - 12 and April 18 to 19 at the Olympic Stadium. The boy-band also released a main poster for the Seoul concert, ramping up fans' anticipation for the upcoming K-pop event. 


After these four concerts in the city of Seoul, BTS will be heading out to the North American cities of Santa Clara, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando, Atlanta, New Jersey, Washington D.C., Toronto, and Chicago from April 25 to June 6, 2020. From June 13 to 14, it appears that BTS is keeping their plans a bit secretive, as the cities and venues for these dates have been marked with a question mark -- perhaps it is a very special surprise for their army of fans that will be revealed later on? Who knows?

(L-R) V, Suga, Jin, Jungkook, RM, Jimin and J-Hope of BTS attend the 2019 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 01, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Then from late June to September 2020, BTS will be touring in Japan and visiting the cities of Fukuoka, Osaka, Saitama, Tokyo. And then they will make their way to Europe as well, holding shows in London, Berlin, and Barcelona. You can check out the full dates and venues of the BTS Map of the Soul Tour by clicking here


Many fans were posting hyperactive gifs and hilarious reactions to the exciting news that BTS would be touring again."OMGGGGG  #MapOfTheSoulTour" "YESSSSSS! AAHAHAHAHA!!!"

"OMG IT’S HAPPENING!""If you read this and you still haven't gone to a BTS concert, I wish with all my heart that you will meet them one day! You will ❤️ "

A lot of their South American fans were also pleading with them to extend their world tour and come further south. "DON'T FORGET ABOUT CHILE AND LATIN AMERICA SIR"#BrazilWantsBTSTour campaign also started in earnest following the announcement, begging the band to come to Brazil, where the band has millions of fans.

Perhaps the band will make a stop there in the future, considering the vociferous online demand.

In the meantime, check out the band's artsy pre-release single 'Black Swan' below - an art film choreographed and performed by the Slovenian MN Dance Company. It's a brilliant and well-judged move for a group whose worldwide dominance has only strengthened its artistic ambitions. (If you haven't seen their global art initiative already, check it out here.) 



BTS's latest upcoming album 'Map Of The Soul: 7' will be released on February 21 with pre-orders being available since Thursday, January 9. We bet you're excited!
