Am I the only one who would be more shocked if someone said that they weren’t postponing movies or tours? Everyone should be staying home.
And yes – I want to go to concerts. I am sad that I won’t be seeing BTS. But I am okay with it, because I know that I need to stay home.
“This tour involves the participation of staff and crew from around the world as well as global logistics systems,” a statement read (via Billboard). “While there are certain countries, regions and cities where conditions have improved, including Korea, it is difficult to make the decision to begin the tour based on these recent developments. 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. Moreover, it is impossible at this time to predict when the first performance marking the start of the tour will be able to begin.
BTS is considerate of their fans and we’re sure that this decision isn’t easy. The said that it may take some time to put together a new tour, but that they will go back on tour again.
“The decision to reschedule the tour was made with the health and safety of our artists and fans in foremost consideration,” Big Hit added to the statement. “With sincerity and commitment to transparency, we will inform you of any and all further changes and continue to provide updates.”
We know that the fandom is a little disappointed, but like everyone would rather be safe than sorry.
We’ll be there when they go back on tour.
