The girls of BLACKPINK officially became the female group that holds the highest-grossing concert tour, after their ongoing world tour “BORN PINK” earned ₩105 billion (approximately $78.5 million) in 2022.
The US-based box score reporter Touring Data revealed that the four-member female group broke the record set by the legendary British girl group Spice Girls, which earned $78.2 million during their 2019 “Spice World Tour”.
Runners-up in the same records are TLC with their 1999-2000 “FanMail Tour” and Destiny’s Child’s 2005 “Destiny Fulfilled…And Lovin’ It” tour.
The “BORN PINK” tour kicked off in Seoul in October 2022 and continued with a 26-stop journey in North America and Europe for the rest of the year.
BLACKPINK members Rosé, Jisoo, Jennie, and Lisa are still set to perform in some parts of North America, Asia, and Australia, with several encores scheduled in Europe, the US, and Thailand for 2023.
As the biggest K-pop girl group world tour, BLACKPINK’s agency YG Entertainment projected that the “BORN PINK” concerts will attract approximately 1.5 million audiences worldwide and make around $200 million in total if all tickets were sold for the remaining shows.
