In addition to being the first foreign girl group to debut at Budokan in Japan, BLACKPINK will also perform at a stadium.
BLACKPINK will be doing the opening performance of TAEYANG’s world tour concert at Hotto Motto Field Kobe on August 5-6. BLACKPINK seems to be on a fast track to success as it has just held a phenomenal debut showcase and is now about to go up on stage at a stadium. It is all the more meaningful as BLACKPINK will be appearing as a guest of their labelmate TAEYANG’s concerts.
All the 14,000 seats to BLACKPINK’s Japan debut showcase, which took place on July 20, were sold out. What’s more surprising is that more than 20,000 people had applied for the tickets.
BLACKPINK will also appear in Japan’s upcoming major events: Japan’s biggest music festival A-nation and huge fashion events such as the Tokyo Girls Collection and Kobe Collection. BLACKPINK’s Japan debut album will be released on August 30, and the group will launch an active promotion campaign in Japan afterwards.
BLACKPINK’s “As If It’s Your Last” is gaining more and more popularity. As of August 1, the music video of the song surpassed 90 million YouTube views. BLACKPINK surpassed this mark 21 days earlier than the previous record holder. BLACKPINK’s one year anniversary is coming up on August 8, and the group is expected to have four music videos that surpassed 100 million views by then.
Meanwhile, TAEYANG is to make a solo comeback after a three-year hiatus, and he is currently on a tour titled “WHITE NIGHT”. He will be performing at the Jamsil Stadium in Seoul on August 26-27.
