Blackpink brought their monumental “Born Pink” world tour to a triumphant close with a dazzling finale in Seoul. Over the course of September 16 and 17, the global K-pop sensation marked a significant milestone, becoming the first K-pop female group to grace the stage of the renowned Gocheok Sky Dome. The grand finale was nothing short of spectacular, starting with a stunning display of fireworks and dynamic dance routines. The quartet opened their set with the electrifying number “Pink Venom,” igniting the atmosphere with their boundless energy and vivacity. The members individually expressed their joy and excitement at performing in Seoul once again, with Rosé noting their return to the stage in the capital city after a year.
The group kept the fervor alive with riveting renditions of hit tracks like “How You Like That” and “Pretty Savage,” followed by a heartfelt performance of “Kick It.” As the concert progressed, the group showcased an array of captivating performances, including a section dedicated to highlighting each member’s successful solo careers. The solo segments were a testament to Blackpink‘s diverse talents, featuring a range of performances from Jennie’s graceful shadow dance in “You & Me” to Lisa’s dynamic rapping and dancing in “Money.”
The energy in the Gocheok Sky Dome surged as Blackpink enthralled the audience with hit singles like “Lovesick Girls” and “Playing With Fire,” even incorporating a theatrical, musical-style performance with the song “Typa Girl.” The finale segment of the concert saw the band performing crowd favorites such as “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du” and “Forever Young,” followed by a heartfelt thank you and farewell with their closing number, “As If It’s Your Last.”
