Grab your lighters and let’s dive into #BANGBANGCON21, BTS’s online concert event.
What is #BANGBANGCON21?
This all began due to the pandemic (what a shock).
At the time, BTS was meant to go on their Map of the Soul tour back in 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the tour was indefinitely postponed. However, BTS didn’t want to leave their fans hanging, so Bang Bang Con was born.
The first ‘Bang Bang Con’ took place on their BANGTANTV YouTube channel on April18-19th,2020. This BTS online concert showcased many of their old shows, including BTS 3rd Muster [ARMY.ZIP+], 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III The Wings Tour In Seoul, and BTS World Tour ‘Love Yourself’ Seoul.
Fans of course loved it, with the stream amassing 50.59 million views within the span of 24 hours (now that is the power of the ARMY).
For this year’s ‘Bang Bang Con’, the set list included BTS Live Trilogy EP. 1 BTS Begins (Memories of 2015), BTS 5th Muster [Magic Shop] in Busan, and BTS World Tour Speak Yourself in São Paulo.
we made so many good memories because of these, thank you bts !!#BANGBANGCON21 pic.twitter.com/vfSUYH82RF

What’s next for BTS?
Of course, BTS has a lot more in store for fans besides this online concert. The band has just smashed two world records for sales on their single ‘Dynamite’ and their Japanese compilation album, BTS, The Best will be launching on June 16th, so there will be a lot more for the ARMY to celebrate soon.
While not confirmed yet by the band, some have speculated that BTS may be working on new music, however any official announcement will come from the band at their typical launch time of midnight KST. We expect the ARMY to be ready if that is the case.
