BLACKPINK and YouTube Music announced today that their highly anticipated global livestream experience THE SHOW will be postponed from December 27 to January 31, 2021, due to safety precautions and current restrictions pertaining to COVID-19 in South Korea.
“We can’t wait to meet our BLINKS as soon as possible, but in order to comply with the South Korean COVID-19 prevention guidelines and to ensure a safe performance, we have unfortunately made the decision to postpone THE SHOW from December 27 to January 31 of next year,” said BLACKPINK. “Through our concert, we wanted to give you some sort of comfort during these difficult times, but the health and safety of everyone taking part in THE SHOW is our top priority, so, in order to make sure that we prepare for the concert in a safe environment, we have decided to postpone THE SHOW.”
Fans who purchased access to BLACKPINK’s THE SHOW via channel memberships will be automatically and fully refunded to their original form of payment beginning today. Those who are eager to see the girl group’s livestream in a couple of weeks can join BLACKPINK’s channel membership via the girl group’s official YouTube here, with both purchase options including access to the online concert experience on January 31 and additional perks.
BLACKPINK’s The Show will stream on January 31, 2021 at 12 AM EST/2 PM KST. The global event will find the four-members perform songs from their first full-length album The Album for the first time, as a thank you to their dedicated global fans.
