BLACKPINK coming to Melbourne on Australian tour


K-Pop force BLACKPINK have confirmed an Australian tour with two Melbourne dates at yet to be unspecified venues.

One of the biggest K-Pop acts, BLACKPINK, have announced via their social channels that they’ll be coming to Melbourne for two live concerts as part of a seemingly four-date Australian tour, which will also feature a performance in Auckland. With venues still to be announced, we’ll have to wait and see exactly what details follow.

BLACKPINK’s debut track reached the top of every record chart in Korea within only four hours of its release. Five years later, BLACKPINK has risen to worldwide stardom and were the subject of their own film last year, which was released globally.

Since bursting onto the scene in 2016, BLACKPINK have redefined the possibilities of K-pop. With their single ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’, the South Korean quartet broke the record for the highest-charting Billboard Hot 100 debut by an all-female K-pop act, while its head-turning video surpassed 10 million views in just six hours and racked up 36.2 million views in one day.

Discovered by YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK is comprised of JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA: four vocalists, dancers, and fashion icons. Released in 2016, their debut ‘SQUARE ONE’ quickly proved their crossover power; in 2018, “SQUARE UP” climbed to #40 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Billboard World Albums chart.

Several months after “SQUARE UP” hit the charts, YG Entertainment and Interscope Records announced a global partnership for BLACKPINK, paving the way for the group’s international breakthrough. With their EP Kill This Love arriving in April 2019, BLACKPINK further boosted their popularity by successfully completing a world tour and becoming the first K-pop girl group to perform at Coachella, the largest music festival in the U.S.
