Blackpinks “Born Pink World Tour” In Dallas: Review
After two nights in Seoul, BLACKPINK began the North American portion of their "BORN PINK World Tour" in Dallas on Tuesday.
The K-pop female group's influence was felt before entering the first of two Dallas shows. Fans dressed in the band's signature style, while merch lines wrapped the halls.
When BLACKPINK performed at 8:11 p.m., the general admission area was just two-thirds filled and some seats were unoccupied.
BLACKPINK's fans, known as BLINKS, are passionate, and their enthusiasm filled the American Airlines Center.
Several times during the show, the band members joked around with each other and the crowd, talking about how much they loved Dallas.
As for the music, BLACKPINK is known for energetic, bombastic electropop bangers, and their production design matched that energy.
The show featured costume changes, complex choreography, a chorus of dancers, and a full rock backing band, whom the girls thanked by name individually halfway through the set.
Fans were given heart-shaped lightsticks, which they used to pump to the beat of songs like "Kill This Love" and "Pink Venom," lighting the stands in a pink glow.
Each band member had a solo opportunity during the performance as well. BLACKPINK bid the audience farewell after performing "Forever Young"
BLACKPINK will perform again on October 26th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, followed by two nights in Houston.
