BTS’s Bang Bang Con event to be broadcast amid coronavirus shutdown


Please note, BTS Army: This is not an exercise.

K-pop sensation BTS is hosting a special online streaming evening from April 17 to 18 in the United States (April 18 to 19 at Korean Standard Time), more than a month after the group started to cancel tour dates due to the coronavirus epidemic.

The BTS virtual festival, dubbed Bang Bang Con, will feature a marathon of recorded concert footage before the pandemic ends live events worldwide.

Starting at 8 p.m. Pacific on April 17, Friday’s programming includes a video of the BTS HYYH live concert in 2015, the HYYH epilogue of 2016, the Red Bullet Live trilogy of 2014 and 3rd Muster in 2016. Cyber-extravagance will resume at the same time on April 18, with the 2017 Wings Tour live in Seoul, the Wings Tour: The Final, the 4th Muster 2018 and the Love Yourself Seoul 2018 concert.

Bang Bang Con is the latest effort by artists “ON” to continue to entertain their fans in auto-quarantine. Last month, members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook participated in James Corden’s “Homefest” special, which included Billie Eilish, Andrea Bocelli, Dua Lipa and more.
