BTS will meet fans from all over the world with their “all-time performances.”
It was earlier announced that BTS’s new concert “Map of the Soul ON:E” will only go on as online on Oct. 10 and Oct. 11. It is the first time in about four months that BTS will meet fans with an online concert since “Bang Bang Con: The Live” held on June 14.
At the time, “Bang Bang Con: The Live” garnered more than 756,600 simultaneous viewers from 107 regions, setting the Guinness World Record for “most viewers for a music concert live stream.”
BTS’s upcoming streamed concert is expected to be even more magnificent. “Map of the Soul ON:E” cost eight times more than “Bang Bang Con: The Live.” Four large stages have been set up to achieve the highest quality performance that only BTS can show.
High-tech technologies have also been combined to provide a more memorable experience for the audience. Audiences around the world will be able to appreciate the concert, which introduces augmented reality (AR) and extended reality (XR) technologies, in a clear high definition of 4K/HD, and feel the liveliness of being at the actual concert. Like “Bang Bang Con: The Live,” “multiview live streaming” service will also be offered. This allows the audience to select the desired screen in real-time by displaying six angles on one screen.
Big Hit Entertainment said, “For fans who must have felt disappointed by the continued cancellations of the offline concerts due to COVID-19, we will present a performance that has never been released before. We will make different setlists for the first and the second day to present a rich spectacle.”
