(Adding to the growing laundry list of cancellations in the K-pop world,)
South Korean boyband BTS have postponed their upcoming North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Their 'Map of the Soul' tour was due to hit California next month with concerts in Santa Clara on April 25th and 26th followed by three days at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena in early May.
The band's label, Big Hit Entertainment, announced the tough decision to postpone the tour, adding that it will add new tour dates as soon as possible.
BTS had already made the decision in February to cancel four mid-April concerts in Seoul that would have kicked off the tour.
