BLACKPINK to hold concerts at 3 major Japanese domed stadiums

K-pop girl band BLACKPINK will throw their first concert tour of major domed stadiums Japanese at the end of the year, meeting with some 200,000 Japanese fans, the band's management agency said Tuesday.

YG Entertainment said the quartet will kick off the Japanese tour at Tokyo Dome on Dec. 4 before throwing concerts from January 4-5 next year at Osaka's Kyocera Dome and one more concert at Fukuoka Yahuoku! Dome on Feb. 22. The four concerts will draw some 205,000 spectators.

The Japanese events were announced as part of the sensationally successful K-pop girl band's ongoing world tour, which has covered Asian countries and is set to hit North American cities later this month. The tour also includes stops in Australia and Europe.

The band released a new album, "Kill This Love," on April 5, recording another massive hit.

The album's eponymous main track debuted at No. 41 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the week of April 20, becoming the highest-charting song by any K-pop girl band, according to Billboard on Thursday.

It also ranked 35th on Spotify's U.S. Top 50 chart.

This month, the band goes on the North American leg of the tour, stopping first in Los Angeles on April 17.

As part of their American trail, the band will appear on CBS' "The Late Late Show with James Corden" on Thursday before making their second appearance, on Friday, for this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival which runs from April 12-21 in California.
