“With a concept of inviting fans to a chamber of BTS … the ticketed live streaming show will last for 90 minutes, starting at 6 p.m. on June 14,” according to Big Hit. Chamber translates into “bang” in the Korean language.

It is the latest online event that BTS will engage in as the band steps up online activities in the time of self-quarantining over COVID-19.

The entire global itinerary of BTS’ 2020 world concert series, “Map of the Soul Tour,” was put on hold due to the pandemic, which left the band stranded at home.

Last month, BTS provided free online streams of eight of its previous concerts, reaching out to its fans under self-quarantine at home and abroad. A total of 2.24 million fans simultaneously connected to the two-day live streaming event.

Tickets for the upcoming “Bang Bang Con the Live” will be available for purchase on the Weverse Shop online application starting on June 1. (Yonhap)
