BLACKPINK is all set to make a comeback with virtual content on PUBG, but when is the event taking place?
Fans had been waiting for a long time to see BLACKPINK back on the stage once again. While the girls are not holding a physical concert yet, the virtual event is something fans can look forward to.
After being away from the limelight for nearly three years, the band is all set to make a return.
When is the virtual concert going to take place?
The virtual concert is all set to take place on 22nd-23rd and 29th-30th July for North and South America. Meanwhile, the rest of the world can enjoy the concert on 23rd-24th and 30th-31st July.
This is not the first time the band has teamed up with the PUBG Mobile game. Back in 2020, the band got together with the app during the launch of The Album.
The tickets for the event were released on July 15. Fans will have a chance to buy the outfits worn by the member from July 23 to Aug. 31, as reported by Billboard. At the same time, there will be daily promotional rewards until the concert takes place.
