BLACKPINK Makes U.S. TV Debut On 'Colbert' With 'Ddu-Du Ddu-Du'

BLACKPINK made history on Tuesday morning (February 12) when the four-piece took to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for their U.S. television debut.
For their performance of their mega-smash "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du," Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa churned out a highly-choreographed number of their SQUARE UP hit similar to their previous international press performances. Without missing a beat, the quartet offered up smooth dancing, flirty glares and hand mics to the late-night show set, giving American audiences just a small taste of the BLACKPINK agenda. Fun fact: The music video for "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" is the the fastest K-pop group clip to surpass 600 million views on YouTube and we have a feeling that their Stateside takeover will help push the video even furthered.
If you liked what you saw, the K-pop quartet is set to bring their concert set to North America for their 2019 "In Your Area World Tour," which will include major markets like Los Angeles, Chicago, Newark, Atlanta, Forth Worth and two weekends of Coachella. They will become the first female K-pop group to perform at the annual festival. Scroll on below to see all of their dates for their worldwide trek. Tickets go on sale next Wednesday!
