BLACKPINK’s ‘BLACKPINK ARENA TOUR 2018 – SPECIAL FINAL IN KYOCERA DOME OSAKA’ was the finale concert of their Japan tour, which started last year during the summer. Despite being a girl group concert, approximately 80% of the 50 thousand audiences were women in their early 20s. It proved that BLACKPINK is the representative figure of ‘girl crush’ among the young adults residing in Japan.
After finishing their first tour in Japan with heat, BLACKPINK will hold their first-ever world tour titled, ‘BLACKPINK 2019 WORLD TOUR [IN YOUR AREA]’. As the group has noticed their official debut in the United States by partnering with Interscope Records, the representative label of Universal Music Group, people are paying keen attention on BLACKPINK’s global activities of 2019.
