BLACKPINK sets new record at MetLife by selling two consecutive shows


BLACKPINK has recently managed to sell out not just one but two consecutive shows at the iconic MetLife stadium in the United States. The group, known for its electrifying performances and hit songs, accomplished this feat on August 11 and 12, 2023, in New Jersey. This achievement places the K-pop girl group in an exclusive league alongside esteemed artists like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, who have also achieved the same remarkable feat.

Breaking Boundaries in K-Pop History

BLACKPINK has etched its name in history as the first-ever K-pop female idol group to grace the stage of MetLife stadium with two back-to-back sold-out shows. This accomplishment is not only a testimony to their immense popularity but also positions them alongside music giants Beyoncé and Taylor Swift as the only female acts to achieve this incredible milestone. Moreover, the girl group stands as the only Asian female act to captivate their audience with consecutive sold-out performances at MetLife stadium.

BORN PINK’s Success

The accolades for BLACKPINK’s MetLife triumph continue as they set yet another record.

As the rain poured down in New Jersey, BLACKPINK members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa turned up their energy levels with their stunning performances during the show. Notably, their Playing With Fire fan cam has taken the internet by storm, showcasing the group’s remarkable stage presence and skill. The concert witnessed a star-studded audience, with K-pop girl group (G)I-DLE’s members Miyeon, Yuqi, and Minnie in attendance. The trio expressed their love and support for BLACKPINK through heartfelt Instagram Stories, adding to the camaraderie among fellow artists.

Celebrity Enthusiasm and Friendships

BLACKPINK’s performance saw the presence of many prominent celebrities recently. Former American football player Tom Brady was spotted at the show. He also playfully commented on his viral photos from the event, likening the experience to a quintessential dad taking his daughter and friends to a concert. Korean singer Ashley Choi, a close friend of BLACKPINK’s Rosé, also graced the concert to show her unwavering support.

There is no denying that the K-pop girl group’s sold-out MetLife stadium shows not only mark a historic milestone in their career but also solidify their position as global music icons.
