BLACKPINK has been hard at work this year building a solid K-pop empire in the western hemisphere. Not only did they release their highly anticipated sophomore album this year after a four-year-long wait, they’ve also managed to successfully branch out into American culture in a way that’s never been seen before. 

The band has collaborated with the likes of Cardi B, Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, and other pop-culture sensations. Not only that, they’ve also tapped into the home viewing industry by releasing an intimate documentary and setting YouTube records for their popular music videos. The members of BLACKPINK have certainly hit some incredible milestones this year, but it seems they're just getting started. 

Following a secretive teaser video titled “THE INVITATION,” BLACKPINK has announced that they will team up with YouTube Music for a global livestream concert via the platform. The event will be called “THE SHOW” and it is set to take place on December 26 at 9 p.m. PST/December 27 at 12 a.m. EST. 

“THE SHOW” will also be the first event to be featured on South Korean label YG Entertainment’s new digital concert platform, YG PALM STAGE”. 

“We hope everyone can comfortably enjoy our first-ever livestream concert The Show at home and hopefully join in on some special perks we’ve prepared for those who join our channel. Overall we’re super excited to share this fun moment with our Blinks and we can’t wait till The Show,” said the K-pop quarter via a press release. 

Blinks can stream “THE SHOW” on the official BLACKPINK Youtube channel using a one-time subscription. A channel membership will expire at 11:59 p.m. KST (9:59 a.m. EST) on January 2, 2021. There will be the option to sign up with a Standard or Plus Membership, which can be purchased up until an hour before the event begins. 

The standard package starts at $29.99 and includes access to the livestream, rebroadcast and custom emojis. The plus package is $39.99 and includes added behind-the-scenes content. Channel memberships will expire at 11:59 p.m. KST (9:59 a.m. EST) on January 2, 2021. You can watch the official trailer for the event below:
