BLACKPINK, the K-pop powerhouse, is taking its global domination to the next level with its first-ever virtual concert, “BLACKPINK: A VR Encore.” Get ready to dive into the immersive experience that brings their Born Pink World Tour to life in virtual reality.
Conquering Virtual Realms
Not content with just dominating stadiums and music charts, BLACKPINK ventures into the virtual world with Meta and Emmy Award-winning production company The Diamond Bros. This move comes after their nomination for the 2023 Billboard Music Awards as a top K-pop touring artist, a testament to the success of their Born Pink World Tour.
What to Expect
This 70-minute virtual concert, custom-made for VR, recreates the magic of the Born Pink World Tour’s special finale show held in Seoul’s Gocheok Sky Dome. Fans, known as BLINKs, can groove to BLACKPINK’s Billboard Hot 100 hits like “Pink Venom,” “Kill This Love,” and “How You Like That” live. Solo performances from Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa add a personal touch to the experience.
Teaming up with Meta, the virtual reality giant, and The Diamond Bros., an Emmy Award-winning production company, BLACKPINK aims to push the boundaries of entertainment. The collaboration promises a unique concert experience that transcends the traditional boundaries of music shows.
A Thank You to BLINKs
In a statement, BLACKPINK expresses gratitude to their dedicated fanbase, saying, “This VR concert is not just a show; it’s an extension of the tour we poured our hearts into. We can’t wait for you to see the magic we’ve created with The Diamond Bros and Meta, and thank you to our incredible BLINKs for your endless support.”
