Out of concern for BTS’s safety, and the safety of their fellow fans, ARMYs have been reaching out on Twitter to Big Hit Entertainment. These fans are calling for the tour’s postponement until the COVID-19 situation is resolved.

.@BigHitEnt should POSTPONE/cancel tour or WAIT TO SELL TICKETS.
Covid-19 is spreading very fast in Europe. More countries are going on lockdown and we haven't reached the peak of the infection yet.
