Group members Jennie, Jisoo, Lisa and Ros? are set to entertain Saudi K-pop fans with sets from their album “Born Pink,” which will be released in September. For those who cannot wait, the group will drop a single called “Pink Venom” on Aug. 19, at 7 a.m. Saudi time.

The tour kicks off in the South Korean capital Seoul on Oct. 15, before coast-to-coast performances across North America. The European leg of the tour includes stops in Barcelona and Paris as well as two dates in London.

BLACKPINK’s concert in the Kingdom follows that of their fellow K-pop band BTS’ performance in 2019 at King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh.

Venue details, tickets and timings are yet to be announced for the tour.

The Saudi capital hosts Riyadh Season, a series of cultural, entertainment and sporting events during the winter months, which attracts local and international participants every year.
