BTS has canceled several concerts planned in Korea due to the global coronavirus outbreak, according to a post on the group's mobile fan platform Weverse (via Twitter). Korea’s Yonhap news agency was first to report the news.
“It is unavoidable that the concert must be canceled without further delay,” reads the post, which was originally written in Korean and translated by Variety. “Please understand that this decision was made after extensive and careful consideration.”
The canceled shows, the first on the group’s Map of the Soul world tour, were slated to take place on April 11, 12, 18 and 19 at the Jamsil Olympic Stadium in Seoul. Ticket buyers will receive automatic refunds.
