The concert is expected to be held at My Dinh National Stadium in Nam Tu Liem District on July 29 and 30, as part of the girl group’s ongoing worldwide tour entitled ‘Born Pink World Tour.’

The Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports received the concert permit applications from the girl group on Tuesday, Pham Thi My Hoa, deputy director of the department, told a press briefing on Friday afternoon.

Hoa said BlackPink is a famous girl group in South Korea and has performed in many countries worldwide.

The department has sought the municipal administration’s approval to direct relevant agencies to make preparations in terms of healthcare and security affairs for the upcoming concert, Hoa elaborated.

The applicant also made a written commitment to ensuring fire safety, public security and order throughout the concert, the official added.

The songs performed by this girl band have been popularized and their lyrics do not violate regulations stipulated in a government decree on art performance, she said.

Earlier this week, a ‘Born Pink World Tour Hanoi’ poster appeared on online platforms linked to BlackPink, saying that the next stop of the world tour would be My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi on July 29 and 30.

The news roused the excitement of Blinks, the official fandom name for BlackPink, and other K-pop fans in Vietnam to a fever pitch.

Born Pink World Tour is BlackPink’s ongoing second worldwide concert tour to promote their second album ‘Born Pink.’

The tour began on October 15 last year in Seoul and is scheduled to conclude on August 26 this year.

Up to now, BlackPink has toured 21 countries where they performed lots of their hits such as How You Like That, Pretty Savage, Whistle, Kill This Love, Lovesick Girls, Ddu-Du Ddu-Du, and Pink Venom.
