The K-pop sensations disclosed the schedule for their world tour on their official website and social media accounts. They’ll be kicking off their tour in Seoul later this year, and making stops in major cities around the world including Los Angeles, London, and Paris before heading to Malaysia early next year. 

Other cities in Asia that the group will be visiting include Bangkok, Manilla, Singapore, and Jakarta.

The concert in Malaysia is expected to take place at the newly-refurbished Bukit Jalil National Stadium, which has an estimated capacity of 87,411.

This will be the group’s first performance in Malaysia after the pandemic, with their last visit being back in 2019 when they performed a two-day concert at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam.

New album after a two-year hiatus

For the uninitiated, Blackpink debuted in 2016 and have since gained success with their banging tunes and show-stopping performances – songs such as How You Like That, Kill This Love, and DDU-DU DDU-DU may ring a bell. They’ve also collaborated with international artists, including Selena Gomez and Dua Lipa.

Though the group’s hiatus has made fans extra eager for their return, each of the girls have been focusing on solo activities to connect with their fans – Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa have released solo singles, while Jisoo took up an acting gig in a drama. The group also represents luxury brands as global ambassadors.
