A VR Encore will give fans a virtual seat to their global tour’s finale in Seoul, South Korea
Blackpink rolled out the trailer to their upcoming virtual concert BLACKPINK: A VR Encore on Tuesday.
In partnership with Meta, the event will premiere on Dec. 26 at 5 p.m. P.T on Meta Horizon Worlds. Fans will be invited to take a virtual seat at the finale of their massive Born Pink world tour in Seoul, South Korea. Produced and directed by The Diamond Bros, the event will capture the group’s performance at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
“Filming our upcoming VR concert in the heart of Seoul has added an extra layer of magic to this project. It’s where it all began for us, and being able to share this unique experience with our fans around the world feels incredibly special,” said Blackpink in a press release. “It’s great to break down geographical barriers with The Diamond Bros and Meta, bringing back the memory of ‘BLACKPINK WORLD TOUR [BORN PINK]’ finale straight into your home.”
The concert is set to feature hit songs from the Born Pink World Tour including “Shut Down,” “Pink Venom,” and “How You Like That.”
Blackpink spent much of 2023 touring the world in support of their 2022 album, Born Pink — the group’s first album since their 2020 debut, The Album. At the time of the global trek’s announcement last year, the pop phenomenon’s management company YG Entertainment teased it the “largest world tour in the history of a K-pop girl group.”
In August, members Rosé, Jennie, Jisoo, and Lisa celebrated seven years together, and shared heartfelt messages on social media to commemorate the occasion. “Thank you, thank you and thank you a thousand times,” Rosé wrote in a tribute. “My heart is so full. I cannot express my gratitude for every singe person who has been a part of this seven year journey with us four.”
