BLACKPINK’s Tour Dates
Currently, there is no talk or discussion regarding BLACKPINK and their tour plan because, in the end of this year, BLACKPINK is already busy with their first reality show titled ‘BLACKPINK’s House’. Occasionally, BLACKPINK also performs their hit songs such as ‘BOOMBAYAH’, ‘Whisper’, ‘Playing With Fire’, and ‘As If It’s Your Last’ at campuses and school festivals. Expectedly, BLACKPINK will also attend year-end music festivals that are held by three major broadcast stations in South Korea, namely KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) SBS (Seoul Broadcasting System), and MBC (Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation).
BLACKPINK’s Concert Schedule In USA
Despite their status as a new Kpop group, BLACKPINK has already made their name known worldwide, including the superpower country the United States of America. According to Nielsen Music, BLACKPINK achieved a proud result in Billboard’s World Digital Sales Chart with their recent single ‘As If It’s Your Last’ with 4,000 downloads in the week, ending June 22. BLACKPINK also outranks fellow girl groups such as Little Mix and Fifth Harmony on Social 50Chart as they occupy #15, whereas the other two groups are at #31 and #45.
Moreover, BLACPINK is placed at #113 in the United States’ Hot 100 Chart, which is considered a huge achievement for a group who is just starting their career, and they also have more than 50 million views for their MV ‘As If It’s Your Last’ in just two weeks of its release. In spite of the great news of BLACKPINK’s accomplishment in America, BLACKPINK’s agency YG Entertainment has not stated anything regarding BLACKPINK concert in the USA. Hopefully, the chance of BLACKPINK performing in front of their American fans will come true in the next few years. Let’s cross our fingers, dear readers!
BLACKPINK’s Concert Schedule In Philippines
On Amino forum, a user stated that there is a possibility of BLACKPINK joining the line up along with other Kpop girl groups and boy groups such as Apink, Red Velvet, Nu’est, GFRIEND, EXID, and NCT 127 for a concert titled ‘Korean Music Festival’ in the Philippines. Expectedly, the concert will be held in the Araneta Coliseum on 24 November 2018 and included a meet and greet event with limited seats. However, this announcement has not been made official as the promoting organizer for this concert has not been decided yet.
BLACKPINK’s Concert Schedule In Japan
It is already known for Kpop fans that at some point in career, Korean girl groups and boy groups will expand their job horizon by debuting in other East Asia countries, such as Japan and China. BLACKPINK is not an exception as they also venture to South Korea’s neighbor country, Japan, which is known to be a promising country for promoting because the profit that comes from performing and merchandise goods are higher than the usual rate in South Korea.
BLACKPINK successfully concluded their showcase titled ‘BLACKPINK Premium Debut Showcase’ in Budokan arena, Tokyo on 20 July 2017. The seats for BLACKPINK Japan showcase were all sold out as the event was attended by 14.000 people. In this showcase, BLACPINK performed their popular songs, such as ‘BOOMBAYAH’, ‘Playing With Fire’, and ‘As If It’s Your Last’.
In Japan, BLACKPINK also performed on A-Nation Music Festival, the annual summer concert organized by Japan’s biggest independent record label Avex Group, along with their labelmate, iKON. The festival was held on 26-27 August 2017 at Ajinomoto Stadium, Tokyo.
BLACKPINK’s Upcoming Concert In 2018
As of now, the hint of a BLACKPINK concert in 2018 has not been seen yet. Many fans of BLACKPINK, which are known as ‘BLINK’, think that in order to do a full concert, BLACKPINK has to release at least two full albums so that the normal duration of a concert (one to two hours) can be fulfilled as BLACKPINK performs their songs. The possibility of BLACKPINK doing a concert in 2018 may still happen in a joint concert with a line up consisting of several artists and groups.
