K-pop girl-group BLACKPINK are hitting the airwaves with some high-profile U.S. television appearances that culminated in the announcement of their first-ever U.S. tour.
The four-member South Korean group —Jisoo, Jennie, Lisa, and Rose — made their American TV debut Monday night on Global‘s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, performing their hit single “Ddu-du Ddu-du”.
Ahead of the broadcast, the group’s members took to social media to share some behind-the-scenes photos from their visit to the Ed Sullivan Theater.
Colbert himself followed suit, sharing a backstage selfie with the group.
The following morning, BlackPink dropped by “Good Morning America” for another performance of the track, along with announcing plans for a U.S. tour, set to kick off at Coachella in April.
“We recently got invited to perform at Coachella, which is unbelievable and we’re really, really excited!” said BLACKPINK’s Rose during the “GMA” appearance. “I guess we thought that it would be the right timing to kick off our U.S. tour.”
Meanwhile, fan reaction on Twitter to BLACKPINK’s “Late Show” performance has been downright ecstatic — here’s a sampling:
