After the encore concert held in Bangkok, Black Pink marked the end of its first world tour.
Black Pink held ‘BLACKPINK 2019 WORLD TOUR ‘IN YOUR AREA’ BANGKOK: ENCORE’ at Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand at 8 pm on the 12th and 6 pm on 13th and 14th (local time). And they met with their local fans once again.
Black Pink opened its first world tour in the same place six months ago. The encore concert was made up of a total of three episodes, thanks to high support from local fans, and the seats were sold out and they met with some 30,000 spectators.
It added significance in that the venue where the world tour first began was to celebrate the finale.
As the concert is also in Bangkok, Thailand, where Lisa’s hometown is located, more heated than ever, the concert venue was filled with heat. Even before the start of the concert, a loud shout filled the concert hall, and local fans enthusiastically welcomed Black Pink’s revisit with a whole bunch of songs.
Black Pink, which preheated the scene with its mega-hits “DDU-DU DDU-DU ” and “Forever Young,” moved closer, speaking Thai and English together for local fans. “We’re very happy to be here again for the concert tonight,” Black Pink said.
After the remix version of “STAY” and an acoustic version of “Whistle” ended, a solo stage that enabled the members’ unique charm went on. In particular, Lisa has garnered great acclaim from the audience for the unique choreography she has not unveiled on her solo stage.
For the encore concert, a surprise banner event prepared by local fans in each episode drew attention. Fans impressed Black Pink with banners reading “MY AREA IS ALWAYS FOR YOU” in unison during the first performance. In the second performance, they prepared a banner with the phrase “sometimes when it’s dark, I WILL BE YOUR FIRE”,” and in the last performance, they prepared a Korean banner that read, “I’ll still cheer you here,” expressing their affection for Black Pink.
During the world tour, Black Pink visited fans in 23 cities on four continents — Seoul, London, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, Macau, Melbourne, Sydney, Bangkok, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Manila, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Taipei, Los Angeles, Chicago, Hamilton, Newark, Atlanta, Fort Worth, Amsterdam, Manchester, etc.
In the last three performances, the members shed tears of happiness as they took time to look back on the past six months of their world tour journey. The members said, “The staff members who have worked so hard for 6 months! Thank you and we love you.” They didn’t forget to take care of their staff during the tour.
In particular, Jennie expressed special friendship by telling Lisa in Thai, “Lisa, thank you for always making our team full with happy energy.”
Impressed, Lisa wiped away tears, and the eyes of the fans looking at them also became moist. BLACKPINK kept its memories while taking commemorative photos against the backdrop of Bangkok fans who filled the concert hall, thanked them in Thai and promised to meet again in the future.
After Bangkok, Black Pink successfully completed its 32nd performance, touring a total of 23 cities in four continents of Asia, North America, Europe, and Oceania for about six months. Following the momentum, the company will hold four domed tours of three Japanese cities this year at the Tokyo Dome in December, Kyocera Dome in Osaka in January next year and Fukuoka Yahoo Oak Dome in February.
