Korean boy band BTS revealed Wednesday the stopovers for their upcoming world tour, which excludes the Philippines.

BTS' "Map of the Soul" tour will kick off in April 11 at the Seoul Olympic Stadium, according to the tour schedule published on social media by the band's agency, Big Hit Entertainment.

BTS will continue to play shows at the Seoul Olympic Stadium in April 12, and from April 18 to 19, according to the post.

After South Korea, the septet will play in cities across the United States, Europe and Asia from late April to early September.

The tour's Asian leg, so far, only included cities in Japan.

BTS also listed a mystery event set to take place in June 13 to 14, coinciding with the band's debut anniversary. The dates are marked with a question mark in the poster released by Big Hit.

The 2020 tour aims to promote the band's "Map of the Soul" series, which includes the extended play "Persona," released last April 2019, and the studio album "7," scheduled for release in February.

BTS last visited Manila in May 2017 for a two-day concert as part of their "The Wings" tour.
