One Major Complaint About BLACKPINK’s “BORN PINK” Concerts That Most Fans Seem To Agree On

It has nothing to do with the members themselves.

For the most part, BLACKPINK fans that have attended the group’s ongoing BORN PINK world tour have had high praise for their performances!

Though there have been some videos going around that have left some people questioning if the members have enough time to practice together for the tour, they tend to be few and far between. And with a K-Pop girl group as popular as BLACKPINK, it isn’t surprising to see them getting unfairly hated on just for being successful.

Despite the overall good reception from BLINKs towards their tour concerts, however, there does seem to be one downside that many fans have mentioned and agreed on.

On a recent Reddit thread asking for fans’ honest opinions on the concerts that they’ve attended, there were a number of people who brought up the length of the concert.

On average, most K-Pop concerts tend to last from 2.5-3 hours, with a little additional time for breaks and interludes. And considering the high price of concert tickets for the bigger artists in the industry, you definitely want to get as much time for your money as possible!

BLACKPINK’s BORN PINK concert tickets were particularly expensive, which makes the fact that fans are claiming the show is only two hours long — breaks included — disappointing to many.

Prices for the tickets are going for a couple hundred to over a thousand dollars for front-row seats, so it makes sense why fans would expect a long concert that included most of BLACKPINK’s discography. However, it’s been reported that there are many songs from The Album in particular that aren’t included in the concert, and also that some songs that are being performed have even been shortened.

Considering that the BLACKPINK members themselves likely weren’t in charge of how many songs they had to perform for their concerts, the frustration about their short showtimes isn’t aimed towards the idols themselves.

And overall, it sounds like the reception to their first couple of concerts in the U.S. has been great despite the short time, with all of the members putting as much energy and enthusiasm into their performances as possible!

We hope that BLACKPINK and BLINKs continue to have a great time as the BORN PINK tour goes forward!
