Big Hit Music has now confirmed the cancellation of all dates for BTS's '2020 Map of the Soul' world tour, which was postponed previously due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

On August 20, 2021, the agency stated, "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'." Big Hit Music continued, "The tour's concerts in Seoul were previously canceled in February of last year, followed by the postponement of the North American leg in March; dates in Europe and Japan were postponed prior to the start of ticket sales in those regions. We regret that we must now inform you of the formal cancellation of the tour. For fans who have reserved tickets for the North American shows, you will receive an email from your original point of purchase regarding refunds."

The agency then assured fans that they were currently working on "a viable schedule and performance format that can meet your expectations", and updates will be provided as soon as possible. 

As soon as Big Hit Music disclosed the news, people started talking about it. Sharing a screenshot of a Big Hit Music ticket cancellation e-mail, one person tweeted, "As painful as it is to lose your tickets, it must have been very difficult for BigHit to decide on this as well...." While one fan said, "So much more than concert tickets. They were a tangible, bright, optimistic promise that things would in fact get better and that we would, some day, be able to be together again. It's so hard to lose that. @bts_bighit #BTSARMY."



 



 

 

Another fan tweeted, "We know this is a hard decision to make, we know how much they work hard for this and how massive the preparation is. We also know the time will come where we will be able to meet each other again, we will wait for that day, no matter how long. @BTS_twt." One fan showed full support and said, "all jokes aside, bts n bighit really did push n push the tour back as far as they could. knowing the situation w/ covid and how long it’ll continue to affect us, they prioritized our safety and in that aspect i understand the cancelation. thank you for wanting the best for us. <3"
