The girls of BLACKPINK just concluded their BORN PINK world tour, with a smashing finale concert back in Seoul on September 16 and 17, 2023. Through the tour, the girls covered a total of 24 countries and 34 cities! They held a total of 40 shows (not counting double days, counting encores) over the past year. Finally, as they wind down for some well-deserved rest and relaxation, here are the reported takings for the tour.
According to reporter Kang Sung Hoon at a Korean media outlet, the girls raked in ₩350 billion KRW (about $265 million USD) across their tour. This is the total sales amount. As for revenue, it was reported that they earned USD 163.8 million, making them the highest-grossing tour by a female artist debuting in the 2010s. They surpassed Ariana Grande‘s Sweetener Tour. Looks like Ariana has some venti-sized competition over here!
The girls were also the third female singer in the world to sell out at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, the first two being Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.
They are also the fourth female singers to headline the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, after Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and P!nk.
Talk about iconic! Each of their concerts have sold out, even with ticket prices being sky high. Many famous singers also scored tickets to see the girls live, including John Legend.
There’s no other girl group that can beat BLACKPINK at this moment. They’re truly the queens of K-Pop!
