BTS announce streamable ‘Bang Bang Con’ show
The South Korean supergroup BTS have announced a two-day online concert event, called ‘BANG BANG CON’. The group said they wanted to entertain fans while self-isolating.
BANG BANG CON will begin on Friday, April 17 via dedicated YouTube channel. That’s where band members such as RM will stream full-length concerts and commentary from the past six years.
The series will kick off with BTS 20014 Live Trilogy: Epiosde II The Red Bullet (2014 Memories) followed by 2015 BTS Live On Stage and 2016 BTS Live On Stage: Epilogue.
The concert marathon will continue the following day, including 2016’s 3rd ‘Muster’ during which BTS perform and meet their fans.

Although these concerts have been available to purchase online, BANG BANG CON will be the first time these performances are made available for free.
BTS are certainly doing their part to entertain fans during self-isolation. The band previously launched Korean-languages lessons to, “make it easy and fun for global fans who have difficulty enjoying BTS’s music and contents due to the language barrier.”
The streaming mega-show was announced more than a month after BTS cancelled tour dates in response to the COIVD-19 pandemic. The band would be currently touring North America; part of their Map of Soul tour.
New North America dates have yet to be announced.
