BLACKPINK have announced two UK shows as part of their 2019 world tour. The K-Pop stars will perform at the Manchester Arena on Tuesday 21 May, and the SSE Arena in Wembley the next day, marking their first ever UK dates and what should be the biggest K-pop event in the UK so far this year.
BLACKPINK world tour
Korean female group BLACKPINK consists of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa, who in addition to being in the group, will also release solo music later this year. The four-piece’s debut single SQAURE ONE was released in 2016. Following it’s success, the girl group went on to release another single and three EP’s which hit the charts across Korea and internationally.
Their smash-hit single As If It’s Your Last was released in 2017, earning them the title of “fastest girl group to reach 400 million views”. BLACKPINK then broke their own record in 2018, with their latest EP album, SQUARE UP.
BLACKPINK recently collaborated with British pop icon Dua Lipa for the single Kiss and Make Up – a bilingual track in both Korean and English.
In November 2018, the band released their first Japanese studio album, Blackpink in Your Area, and in January 2019, the K-Pop titans announced they’d make their American debut with a performance at the iconic Coachella Festival.
BLACKPINK bring their World Tour to London’s The SSE Arena, Wembley for one night only on 22 May 2019.
