K-Pop band BLACKPINK add Manchester date to UK tour

BLACKPINK are bringing their World Tour to Manchester Arena on 21 May.

BLACKPINK have announced a new UK date, taking place at Manchester Arena on 21 May 2019.

The news follows the announcement that the hottest Korean female group will perform at London’s The SSE Arena, Wembley in spring 2019.

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 will come to the UK in Spring, performing all their hit songs, as well as performing remixes and solo efforts.

Watch the video for their single Ddu-Du Ddu-Du below:

The band’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.

Since then they’ve also released the single Ddu-Du Ddu-Du, which charted at No. 55 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it the highest-charting hit ever by a K-POP girl group, and YouTube’s most-viewed Korean music video in 24 hours in YouTube history.

BLACKPINK also 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.

Don’t miss your chance to see the group live in Spring 2019.
