Here is some good news to end the year. BLACKPINK will be holding an online concert later on this month. The South Korean girl group’s label YG Entertainment officially announced on December 3 that BLACKPINK will be holding their very first online concert, titled “YG Palm Stage – 2020 BLACKPINK: The Show.” YG Entertainment is partnering with YouTube Music for the concert, which will be streamed live on December 27 at 2pm KST (midnight ET).

Other than being BLACKPINK’s first-ever virtual concert, the upcoming event will also mark the launch of YG Entertainment’s new concert brand “Palm Stage” (named after the idea of a concert fitting in the palm of a viewer’s hand). Prior to their upcoming concert, BLACKPINK will be greeting their fans and providing more details about the live-streamed event through a “BLACKPINK – ‘The Show’ Announcement Live” broadcast on YouTube on December 4 at 2pm KST.
