The tour is in support of the K-pop behemoths’ second studio album ‘Born Pink’, which is released on September 16 via YG Entertainment/Interscope Records (pre-order).
It follows the release of the band’s record-breaking single ‘Pink Venom‘ last month, which made history by becoming the biggest release by a female group or solo artist this decade.
The song, which features on their upcoming album, debuted at Number One on Spotify’s global top songs chart and amassed more than 7.9million streams within the first 24 hours. On YouTube, the official music video reached 100million views faster than any video by a female group in history, with 90.4million views counted within the first 24 hours.
BLACKPINK’s Europe and North America tour news follows world tour dates shared last month. It will see bandmembers Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa play countries including Australia, Singapore and Thailand in 2023.
