Blackpink ‘Born Pink’ 2022-2023 World Tour
After almost six years since Blackpink’s debut, the girl group has rewritten history for the K-pop industry. Headlining at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival back in 2019 certainly expanded Blackpink’s international fan base, but their popularity did not stop there. Six of their music videos have surpassed one billion views on Youtube, setting record-highs for idol groups in Korea.
For their millions of fans who have been clamoring for anything new from pop sensation, Blackpink recently delivered a one-two knockout series of announcements.
October 15th-16th: Seoul
October 25th: Dallas
October 29th: Houston
November 2: Atlanta
November 6th-7th: Hamilton
First, on August 7th, the group’s official Instagram page posted a sneak peek of their pre-release single called ‘Pink Venom’. Then the next day, fans were met with even more exciting news that Blackpink would soon embark on their largest-ever world tour.
With over 26 tour dates in major cities across Asia, Europe, North America, and Australia, the tour is set to blast off in Seoul, South Korea on October 15th. Additional performances and dates will be revealed at a later time, raising hopes for fans around the world who have not yet had a chance to see them live. (According to Rolling Stone, 36 dates are planned for the Born Pink tour.)
‘Pink Venom’, scheduled to drop on August 19, is Blackpink’s first release as a group in nearly two years. While individual members have consistently sought out solo performances and projects, fans have been nostalgic for the group to come back as a band. YG Entertainment further noted that their full album would drop sometime in September, a month before their first tour performance commences.
