After this announcement and with cases of Coronavirus unleashed in several countries , fans of the group began to question whether a similar decision would occur with the rest of the concerts that are part of the tour. However, because in the rest of the nations the cases were very few and everything seemed to be under control, Big Hit determined that no other changes were necessary.
Some weeks have passed and the situation has completely transformed, several countries in Europe have reported an exponential increase in the numbers of infections , so they have had to be quarantined to prevent the numbers from continuing to rise. Given this, there has been much suspicion about whether the BTS concerts that were scheduled to take place on that continent could be canceled like other massive events.
However, Big Hit Entertainment has not determined what their plans are , possibly because they are waiting to see how the situation evolves. According to reports from the company, this topic is still under discussion, so it invites the group’s followers to be patient, since as soon as something is decided they will be in charge of making an announcement.
Meanwhile, the schedule for ticket sales in Europe has had some changes regarding the dates designated for the sale of tickets, announcing that they could be changed again according to how things continue.
