BLACKPINK to hold first livestream concert in December
The sensational K-pop girl group’s concert, called The Show, will air on YouTube on Dec 27.
Globally celebrated K-pop girl group BLACKPINK will hold their first livestream concert on Dec 27.
Titled The Show, the concert will air on the group’s YouTube channel at 1pm.
BLACKPINK, which consists of members Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé, will perform smash hits such as Lovesick Girls and How You Like That from their newly-released debut album, The Album.
The Show is BLACKPINK’s way of expressing gratitude to their fans, also known as Blinks, for their dedication and continual support.
“We wanted to end the year with something very special for our Blinks who have been waiting so patiently for us,” the group said in a statement.
“We hope everyone can comfortably enjoy our first-ever livestream concert The Show at home and hopefully join in on some special perks we’ve prepared for those who join our channel.”
Fans who want to catch The Show will have to purchase access via this page. There are two options, standard and plus, available.
The standard option costs $35, while the plus option costs $50. Both standard and plus options provide access to the livestream, the rebroadcast of the concert and custom emojis.
However, the plus option also allows access to behind-the-scenes content.
“Although it’s sad that we can’t meet in person, we’ll show you great performances that will kick away all those sorrows,” said Rosé in a video uploaded on the group’s YouTube channel.
On Dec 4, BLACKPINK held a livestream to share more about the upcoming concert. The group promised fans a unique virtual concert experience.
“There are certain things that we cannot execute in offline stages that we could only do through the online format,” said Rosé.
BLACKPINK also announced the sale of concert merchandise that will complement the online concert experience.
The group also recently launched the latest version of their lightstick, affectionately known as the “Bbyongbong”. The limited edition BLACKPINK Lightstick Version Two is now equipped with Bluetooth pairing capability, which can be synchronised with the virtual concert.
The powerhouse quartet is currently the most-followed female group on Spotify with over 16.4 million followers. The group is the second-most subscribed music artist on YouTube, behind renowned Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Bieber.
