K-pop sensation BTS are set to host the BTS Map of the Soul ON:E online concert for fans around the world next month, their management agency BigHit Entertainment announced on Tuesday.

To be held in Seoul, the two hour-long virtual show will be livestreamed worldwide on October 10 and 11.

The band — comprising RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook — recently released their debut full-fledged English single “Dynamite”.

BigHit Entertainment said the concert is an attempt to make those fans happy who were disappointed when offline shows of the band were cancelled in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic this year.

“We have prepared never-before-seen stages and various setlists for fans who must have felt disappointed by the cancellation of offline concerts due to COVID-19.

“Some songs will also be given variations across the two days. We hope you look forward to BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E,” the agency said in a statement.

In June, BTS opened a new era of on-contact shows with BANG BANG CON The Live that saw a 756,600 fans in attendance.

The group will also release their next album BE on November 20.
