K-pop stars of Blackpink are coming to Riyadh, as part of a world tour by one of the most popular female Korean bands.
The four-member girl group, comprising Jisoo, Jennie, Rose and Lisa, have announced the first dates and cities for their Born Pink world tour — with the Saudi capital listed as a stop on January 20, 2023.
Blackpink will also perform in Abu Dhabi the week after, on January 28.
Turki Al-Sheikh, chairman of the Board of Directors of General Entertainment Authority (GEA), commended the announcement of the group saying: “Blackpink concert in Riyadh will be one of the big surprises in the upcoming Riyadh Season.”
He said the details about the concert will be announced in the near future.
Riyadh Season is one of Saudi Arabia’s biggest entertainment festivals, which runs for months with a huge diversity of activities.
Blackpink on Monday celebrated their sixth anniversary with members posting tributes on Instagram. Afterward, their agency YG Entertainment announced they would be releasing a new single called Pink Venom on August 19. Their coming album, Born Pink, is set to be released in September.
