Blackpink announces a Japan tour

Mar 29,2018
Girl group Blackpink will hold its first Japanese tour in July, its agency said Tuesday.

The three-city concert series, “Blackpink Arena Tour 2018,” will kick off at Osaka-jo Hall in Osaka on July 24, according to YG Entertainment.

The quartet will later head to Fukuoka and Chiba. The tour will comprise six shows in total.

Blackpink landed one of the most successful debuts in K-pop in 2016, storming multiple music charts back to back with its edgy hip-hop tracks, “Whistle” and “Boombayah.”

The group, the sole female group under YG, continued its winning streak last year with its summer hit, “As If It’s Your Last,” and made its successful Japanese debut in August.

The company said the quartet recently finished recording a new album to be released in the near future.
