After selling out shows across Asia BLACKPINK will soon be the first K-Pop band to perform at Coachella, with the In Your Area tour travelling to the US & Europe before making it's way to Australia.

BLACKPINK’s 4 members: JISOO, JENNIE, ROSÉ and LISA, have drawn a lot of attention since their first debut EP ‘SQUARE ONE’ in 2016. ‘SQUARE UP’ is the highest ranked album from a female Korean act to ever crack the Billboard 200, and the MV of their first single, ‘Ddu-Du Ddu-du’ was the most viewed K-pop on YouTube within the first 24 hours, it holds the title of the second most watched music video of all time with over 36.2 million in the first 24hours.

The quartet’s single ‘As If It’s Your Last’ released in 2017, debuted at at No. 1 on Billboard's World Digital Song Sales Chart and within 17 hours after its release, broke records, by gaining more than 11 million views on YouTube, becoming the fastest music video to exceed 10 million views by a K-pop group at that time.

The excitement of bringing In Your Area to Australia is further amplified as it is Aussie fans’ first time welcoming home, Australian – Korean, ROSÉ. She was born in New Zealand before her family migrated to Australia, where ROSÉ grew up before she joined BLACKPINK.
