Global superstars BTS’ virtual concert “MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E” is coming this weekend. The show will be live streamed across two days, at 6 AM EDT on October 10 and 3 AM EDT on October 11. All ticket holders will also have access to the replay of the live events (in the form of “Delayed Single-view streaming”) at 10 PM EDT on October 10 and 11 respectively.
“MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E” marks the band’s first concert in four months since “BANG BANG CON The Live” in June that was viewed by 756,600 fans across 107 regions and set a new Guinness World Record for ‘most viewers for a music concert live stream.’
This time, the show boasts a production cost eight times bigger than “BANG BANG CON The Live”. BTS will perform on four massive stages, giving the viewers a sense of scale, as if they’re in four different venues. The concert will also incorporate technological features such as AR, XR and 4K/HD to bring viewers more vivid and theatrical concert experience. In addition, it will provide “multi-view live streaming” that displays six multi-view screens from which fans can select their favorite one.
After a year of preparation, “MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E” finally arrives with exclusive and spectacular stages. The show will bring never-before-seen performances as well as altered setlists for each day for fans who must have felt disappointed by the cancellation of offline concerts due to COVID-19. The exciting news of the virtual concert arrives on the heels of BTS’ announcement of their new album “BE (Deluxe Edition)” slated for release on November 20.
