For fans that just can’t get enough of BTS, there’s good news on the way. Big Hit Entertainment has announced the K-pop boy band will livestream a concert called Bang Bang Con the Live next month.

According to the label, the event will be ticketed to watch and take place on Sunday, June 14 at 6pm (Korean time) or 1pm in the UAE.

In addition to the livestreamed gig, the group is also set to appear on YouTube's Dear Class of 2020 event on Saturday, June 6 and perform at the after-party. The virtual commencement ceremony for high school and college graduates will also feature Barack and Michelle Obama, Malala Yousafzai and Lady Gaga.

It is the latest event that the group will take part in as the band steps up its online presence in the time of Covid-19.

Last month, BTS postponed the entirety of its highly anticipated Map of the Soul world tour due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

However, fans were treated to a two-day event on YouTube which provided online streams of eight of the band's previous concerts as well as meet and greets sessions with fans.

But if that isn't enough, the boy band have also launched a series of Korean-language teaching videos to establish a stronger connection with their fans around the world called Learn Korean with BTS.

Tickets for the upcoming Bang Bang Con the Live will be available for purchase on the Weverse app starting on Monday, June 1.
