Last month, BLACKPINK announced an additional stadium show in Paris, as part of the Encore leg of their ongoing ‘Born Pink’ world tour. In a statement, the group said that the show would be the group’s “only stadium date in Europe this summer”.
BLACKPINK have also announced the support acts for their upcoming appearance at the BST Hyde Park in London this summer. They include Sabrina Carpenter, The Rose and Mae Stephens.
Meanwhile, BLACKPINK are set to headline this year’s Coachella on April 15 and 22. In a recent interview, member Rosé said that it “feels absolutely unreal” that the quartet are returning to the festival as headliners, after making their Coachella debut in 2019.
Aside from BLACKPINK, Bad Bunny and Frank Ocean will headline the other days of Coachella. Gorillaz, Rosalía, Björk and more are also set to also perform at the Californian festival. Check out the full line-up here.
