BTS (aka Bangtan Boys/防弾少年団) have just announced another world tour!

It’s called Map of the Seoul, and it will also bring them back to Japan for shows in several large cities, including Fukuoka, Osaka and the Greater Tokyo Area. The group’s last performances in Japan were their 2019 Fanmeetings, which attracted huge crowds.

This BTS world tour will also take them to the North America and Europe.

A lot of details about this tour (including additional shows) are yet to be announced (and updated here in due course), but here is what we know so far (as of Jan 22nd):

How to Get Tickets

Chances are best if you are a member of the Japanese fan club (for which you usually need to be a resident in Japan, with an address and phone number.

Learn how the Japanese ticketing system works, starting with the basics here.

Resale platforms such as Stubhub and Viagogo can be useful, but note that there have been random ID checks at BTS concerts in Japan, before. Thus, we wouldn’t recommend it, unless you trust your lucky stars.
