Girl group Black Pink will embark on their first Asian tour early next year.
Their management agency YG Entertainment said on Thursday the girls will stage concerts around Asia for the first time since their debut in 2016.
The tour will start in Bangkok, Thailand, which is the home country of member Lisa, on Jan. 12 and 13, and cover six other nations -- Jakarta, Indonesia on Jan. 20, Hong Kong on Jan. 26, Manila, the Philippines on Feb. 2, Singapore on Feb. 15, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Feb. 23 and Taipei, Taiwan on March 3.
Before the tour, they will hold their first-ever concerts in Seoul on Nov. 10 and 11.
Just last month Black Pink took a significant step into the U.S. music scene by signing a deal with Interscope Records, an American record label under Universal Music Group.
Meanwhile, member Jennie plans to release her solo single on Nov. 12.
