BLACKPINK Is Extending Their ‘Born Pink’ Tour With New U.S. Dates
Run, don’t walk!
BLACKPINK’s return to music has been a riveting sight to see. Nearly two years after 2020’s The Album, the group reunited for their second album, Born Pink. The record, which was released in September 2022, sees the singers bristling with confidence that matches their impressive list of accolades. BLACKPINK’s vocal chemistry sounds anew on this pop-powered release, and they’ve made sure to show that on their latest tour.
In support of Born Pink, the group kicked off their tour of the same name in October 2022. According to their label, YG Entertainment, this is “the largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group.” You know, just another label to add to their historic wins. The Born Pink tour is currently on the road and has trekked through cities in the United States, Europe, and Asia. It was originally scheduled to wrap up in June; however, the group’s looking to stay booked and busy.
On April 16, BLACKPINK added four U.S. stadium shows to their tour, extending their time on the road to early fall. Fittingly titled Born Pink: Encore, these shows will see the singers returning to New Jersey, San Fransisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles throughout August.
Since this announcement, the “Pink Venom” singers have added a second date in New Jersey. Check out the details about BLACKPINK’s Born Pink era, including info on their pre-release singles, album release date, and world tour below.
When Does BLACKPINK’s Born Pink Tour Start Back Up?
The Born Pink tour will resume on May 13, 2023 in Singapore. The singers had all of April off, but in the meantime, they were entertaining another historic venue: Coachella. Talk about dedication.
Here’s Where BLACKPINK Will Visit On The Remaining Leg Of Their Born Pink Tour
After their brief stint in Singapore, BLACKPINK will trek through four dates in Australia. As seen on their original tour poster, the group was scheduled to visit Auckland, New Zealand as their summer date. However, Frontier Touring — a concert promotion company that oversees shows in Australia and New Zealand — shared on Twitter that certain dates had been canceled. So far, BLACKPINK nor their label have released a new rescheduled date for their New Zealand show.
- May 13 in Singapore at National Stadium
- June 10 & 11 in Melbourne, Australia at Rod Laver Arena
- June 16 & 17 in Sydney, Australia at Qudos Bank Arena
Following their time in Australia, BLACKPINK will embark on their Encore tour in mid-August.
- Aug. 11 & 12 in East Rutherford, NJ at Met Life Stadium
- Aug. 18 in Las Vegas, NV at Allegiant Stadium
- Aug. 22 in San Francisco, CA at Oracle Park
- Aug. 26 in Los Angeles, CA at Dodger Stadium
What Will BLACKPINK Perform On Tour?
It’s safe to say the group will perform their Born Pink album, including singles “Shut Down” and “Pink Venom.” Sonically, this album doesn’t stray from their usual sonic recipe of delivering charismatic one-liners over punchy, pop arrangements, and that seemed to both impress and bore BLINKs. Even with that mixed reception, it’ll surely be a moment to hear these bouncy tracks live.
When Will Tickets To The Encore Shows Go On Sale?
A general presale for the Encore shows began on April 27, as seen on the group’s official website. Any remaining tickets from that presale will go on sale to the general public on April 28 at 10 a.m. local time.
