In news that was probably inevitable, but will break hearts nonetheless in Florida and beyond, BTS has postponed their highly anticipated North American tour due to concerns over the coronavirus.

That means their May 14 concert at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium — the wildly popular Korean pop group’s only scheduled performance in the Sunshine State — is on hold.

No makeup dates have been announced yet; BTS’ website says they’re “TBA." According to Ticketmaster, the new dates will be announced soon, and tickets for the old dates will be honored then.
