K-Pop stars BTS are already one of the big success stories of lockdown livestreams: their ‘Bang Bang Con’ concert in June pulled in 756,000 paying customers.
Now they’re following it up with an even more ambitious event. ‘Map of the Soul ON:E’ will take place on the weekend of 10-11 October, with two broadcasts.
However, there’ll also be a month-long virtual exhibition opening on 13 October: a ‘3D virtual space’ according to Billboard, with merchandise including some that only official fan-club members can buy.
There’s a breakdown of the ticketing here: a one-day ticket costs 49k won ($41.75) alone or 61k won ($52) with virtual exhibition access. A two-day pass costs 90k won ($76.72) or 101k won ($86.09) with the exhibition. Fan-club members, as with ‘Bang Bang Con’, can get discounts.
