When it comes to Korean pop stars several bands come to mind. In the boy’s division, we have BTS, and in the girl’s division, we have Blackpink. Coming from Seoul, South Korea, Blackpink formed their band in 2016. There is a lot to go over and we are here to share it with you. We will go over the best place to sit at a Blackpink concert, some history, touring information, and some stats about where they stand today. Before we get into that we highly suggest you check out the listings below. These will cover all of the Blackpink concert dates that are coming up.

Best Seats for a BLACKPINK Concert
We were late to the party on this concert tour. While looking for the best seats for a Blackpink concert we noticed all of their shows were sold out.
This recent tour has them playing the venue two more times. This tour is also going through Europe to close out the year. We are seeing only resale tickets available at this time. If they aren’t verified resale tickets they are the official platinum tickets. Another meaning for Ticketmaster overcharging you for seats.
Had we been in here for the presale day we could have had more information to share with you. Since there are no standard admission seats you’ll have to check the secondary market like SeatGeek to find your tickets.
We are going to take a peak at the United Center. We see that the floor is one big pit of general admission tickets. Currently, 323 listings are starting at $458 a ticket. Pretty wild how much this is and you don’t even get a seat. This is where you will need to decide if you should wait.
Watch this number of 323 as the days and weeks come. You could see a rise or fall in tickets. If you see a slow rise hang on and wait. If you see a slow fall, hang on but be ready. If you see a fast drop you may want to act. In all cases, this tour seems to be over brokered which means there will be a lot of seats available as you get closer to the actual date of the concert. These seats at $458 could be $200 by show time.
If you would like a seat at the event be sure to start with the first row of the section. These are usually the best seats in the section. You will then notice price drops on the rows behind it. You should compare section to section and row by row on the inner bowl. Once you go beyond that try not to overpay no matter what.
Currently, in section 110 in the United Center, we are noticing prices around the same price as you move up and down the aisle. Sellers know a small price drop will help their seats get sold faster. This is where you can watch several sections and see if tickets are being sold or added. If you aren’t seeing tickets getting sold, hold out and wait. Prices will drop like flies as you get closer. Only if inventory drops quickly is when you need to react.
These venues are huge and the ticket prices are astronomical. There is no way they stay this high up until the event. The owners of the tickets and/or brokers don’t want to get left holding the bag. Patience will win with this one.
*** If you don’t have the patience then look for the best seat. Pay the big bucks and enjoy the show.
Here is a sneak peek of some of the best seats inside the United Center. Notice the colors are mainly burgundy and the rest are greyed out. These are resale tickets. Check out these prices. The question you have to ask is this worth it? Some people will spend a small fortune, but we think most of these seats come down in price. We will follow it and see what happens as we get closer to the event.
Let’s Answer Some Blackpink Questions
Back in 2016, Jisoo, Jennie, Rose, and Lisa formed the band Blackpink. Presently, they are the number one all-girl band in South Korea and possibly the world. At this time, there doesn’t seem to be anything stopping them from holding that position. Their first single was called Square One, which set them up for fame and fortune.
A collaboration with Dua Lipa set them up to stardom like they never thought they could imagine. Kiss and Make Up received a platinum certification. Setting records is one thing they are good at. From a most viewed video on YouTube and the most followed group on Spotify, Blackpink continues to impress its fans.
2016 – 2017 – The beginning of the rise to stardom. Big hits about to become mainstream
2018 – 2019 – This is where the international stage was won with their first tour. They could only hold themselves to YouTube for so long. They had to get out there and perform on some stages. They even performed at Coachella in 2019.
2020 – 2021 – When they decided to work with Lady Gaga on their next album you knew something big was happening. They even performed a song with Selena Gomez. Meanwhile, their YouTube audience kept getting bigger by the hour. They even did a live stream concert on YouTube during the Covid-19 pandemic.
2022 and Beyond – The bar is set high for this K-Pop band. They will tour the world and provide more music for people to enjoy. With only a couple of albums to their name, you can be sure new albums will get released over the years. With the Born Pink World Tour kicking in, we know more dates will be added in the future.
Some BLACKPINK Stats
With over 1.5 billion views for their smash hit “Kill This Love” on YouTube, there is no reason their videos won’t continue to grow. They currently have over 82 million YouTube subscribers which is more than most US rock groups that have been around for a very long time. It is amazing how big their following has grown over the past few years.
They currently have 50 million Instagram followers which is a telling sign that people want to see more of these beautiful ladies. Twitter is another means of their following. With around 9 million fans following, they can spread their music and information to so many people at once. Let’s not forget about the 35 million followers on TikTok. These numbers are mindblowing.
We use Spotify as one of our most important statistical trackers in terms of popularity. With over 34 million monthly listeners you know you will be competing deeply when it comes to tickets to their concerts. While some songs have over 20 million listens, others have reached 700 million listens on Spotify alone.
Let’s Go To a Blackpink Show
The fact is their music is really good and they know how to entertain an audience. This is one show you won’t want to miss if you are a fan.

Try to get the best seats possible. If you can spend some extra money it will be worth it to have a better view. Blackpink will be ready just make sure you are.
