BTS Postpones World Tour Over Coronavirus Concerns
By kmvq on April 28, 2020
On Tuesday, the South Korean boy band BTS suspended their world tour due to coronavirus concerns.
“Due to the nature of BTS concerts involving travel by thousands of international fans no matter where the performances are held, it is also difficult to resume the tour with the current strict restrictions on cross-border movement still in place,” Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement. The promoter said it would provide details of a new tour schedule as soon as they could.
Reuters notes that the bad news comes after the K-pop performers already postponed their North American tour, which was scheduled to start on April 25.
