Automatic refund for anyone who purchased access. Plus, simple steps to buy access to newly-scheduled global livestream experience

BLACKPINK shared today that their highly anticipated global livestream experience THE SHOW will be postponed from December 27 to January 31, 2021 at 12 a.m. EST / 2 p.m. KST, due to safety precautions and current restrictions pertaining to COVID-19 in South Korea. 


BLACKPINK said, “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. 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.”
