BTS may have had to cancel their world tour, but the ARMY can look forward to seeing them do what they do best next month.

The superstars have confirmed that they are holding another live-streamed concert, set to take place on October 24. 

Not many details about the virtual gig have been announced, but the concert is called BTS Permission to Dance.

The concert was announced on the platform Weverse with a poster in the same colour scheme as the single artwork for worldwide hit Butter.

Ticket information will be revealed by Big Hit Music in due course. 

This will be BTS’s first concert in a year, as their last gig, the live-streamed BTS Map Of The Soul ON:E was held in October 2020. 

The two day concert was watched by almost one million fans from 191 regions around the world, and we can imagine this gig will be just as popular.

BTS – made up of RM, Jimin, Jin, Suga, Jungkook, V and J-Hope – had been set to tour Korea, America, Canada, Japan, England, The Netherlands, Germany and Spain with their postponed Map Of The Soul world tour, but last month, they were forced to cancel the dates.

A statement on WeVerse read: ‘Our company has worked hard to resume preparations for the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR, knowing that all fans have been waiting eagerly and long for the tour.

‘However, 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.

‘Our sincere apology to all fans who have waited for the BTS MAP OF THE SOUL TOUR to resume. We are working on preparing a viable schedule and performance format that can meet your expectations, and we will provide updated notices as soon as possible.’
