Never before have four words erupted such a flurry on social media as the phrase “April 2020. Stay Tuned,” posted today to Big Hit Entertainment’s official account today (Dec. 24) along with the first hint of what is to come for BTS in the new decade.
Shared with an image that appears to feature the shadows of the South Korean septet reflected in rippling, purple-hued water featuring the word “TOUR,” the cryptic tweet seems to announce an upcoming tour for the chart-topping act kicking off in April. It will mark a new era for the act, which completed its Love Yourself tour earlier this year with a follow-up stadium concert series known as Love Yourself: Speak Yourself. It also hints to an upcoming release from the act, which released its last formal album, the Billboard 200 chart-topper Map of the Soul: Persona, in April.

Save your money as much as you can from now on. If you will succeed the ticketing you will see @BTS_twt if you will fail the ticketing, you will have lump sum of money anyway. — Love you!
