K-pop girl band Blackpink has taken the global music scene by storm since its launch seven years ago.
The group has amassed a jaw-dropping 2 billion views on Youtube just for one of its songs (Ddu-Du DDu-Du) and generated more than 7.4 billion streams on Spotify, making it the most streamed girl band globally.
In another testament to its popularity, Blackpink performed at the Mecca of music festivals, Coachella, last April – becoming the first K-pop band to take the main stage at the fest held in Indio, east of Palm Springs, California.
Now Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa are set to work their K-pop magic in Macao this weekend, as part of the Asia leg in its global ‘PINK Tour’. And although the event sold out in the blink of an eye, you might find yourself among the fortunate ticket holders.
Here’s what you should know about Blackpink’s concert at Galaxy Arena – and be sure to stay on top of all Blackpink-inspired happenings at Galaxy Macau too.
When is Blackpink’s concert?
What does the VVIP ticket include?
Besides close ups of the K-pop sensations on stage, those holding a VVIP ticket get access to the pre-concert sound check party and a swift check-in at the designated VVIP reception area.
Where can I stay if travelling to Macao for the concert?
I’m coming from Hong Kong for the concert, what’s the easiest way of getting to the venue?
From Taipa Ferry Terminal you may take a taxi to Galaxy (which will take about 5 or 7 minutes if there’s no traffic), catch Galaxy’s shuttle to the resort (available every 20 minutes) or public bus MT1 to Pai Kok/Galaxy.
Alternatively, you can ride the HMZ Bus to Macao which will set you down at HZMB Macao Port in Macao peninsula. Then you can make your way to Galaxy by taxi (about a 13-minute drive) or ride bus 102X, which will take you straight to the Broadway hotel. The hotel is located right across Galaxy and there’s a footbridge linking the two properties.
