Is it only me or 280k paid tickets is already a good number?

  • I expected The Show to get around 150-200K paid tickets.

    Most of blinks are teenagers and they would watch it with a big group of friends by only 1 paid ticket.

    And youtube is not allowed in China.


    When the number is out as 280k, I think it is really good.

    It is only second to BTS' numbers.

    Why do people think this number is not good?

  • It’s not bad but it definitely underperformed. Not for me, but for the company. They promoted the SHIT out of it towards the end, so they were clearly expecting higher numbers. Blackpink just aren’t a fanbase driven group, hence the illegal livestream views being insane. It is what it is.

    You cant say it under performed company expectations based on nothing.. even if they spend $2m they still would make like 8 million profit.. P


    It didnt under perform and it beat other fandom driven groups like NCT? Twice?

    Did YGE released some article before the show and said how many viewers they were expecting or is it just your imagination thinking that a $10M show was a super sad thing to the company?

    If bp underperformed with that number then nct and other groups who got even less lowkey flopped. I don't see where's the insane and expensive promotion yg pulled off other than tweets and a couple youtube vids

    Since when has TWICE and NCT been the ones YG has been trying to get blackpink to beat? It’s 2021 not 2016. Underperforming =\= didn’t make a profit. Underperforming simply means expectations were not met. They wouldn’t have done such a heavy promo run, more than any online concert ever if expectations were being met. Simple as. Also if YG’s expectations were met they would’ve announced the numbers already, but they didn’t for a reason. I’m not dissing blackpink. I’m just stating my opinion based on what I see. Relax.

  • it's amazing numbers and this was just their first online concert . If they have another online concert I'm sure it'll get even more views next time.

    Are NCT on the same level as blackpink???...You see who their name is constantly next to and it’s not NCT, TWICE, EXO or whatever group y’all are gonna bring up next, so please don’t try to lower the value of your own faves. Y’all can act obtuse if you want to, but there’s a reason it’s radio silence from YG right now, all companies with impressive numbers immediately released them So maybe there is a real delay, it’s YG after all, but it could also be the same reason no one to this day knows how many people bought bighit New Year’s Eve tickets ^^ lmaooo also there was heavy promotion on every single social media platform and they even did a james Corden preview of the concert and interview. Enough

    But no one is on Black Pink's level ! So it was basically impossible to know how high the numbers would be.


    Filling five stadiums in one night for an online concert is pretty insane in my opinion.


    If people expected 1-2M and got disappointed... well, that's how it is, but our focus should be 'okay, we got this great base of 280K people who bought a ticket, now we need to increase the numbers for next time. What can we do ? What YG can do ? What the Pinks can do ?'


    What matters is the growth, not the peak.

    :shrug: nct are still comparable to bp when it comes to fandom considering their album sales, so the fact they sold more tickets is not bad at all. And lol at thinking the performance on james corden would have a sustancial effect, fans were already aware of the concert and posting stuff on social media is just the norm, love the mental gymnastics you are making to make people think they underperformed.


    Beating bts' numbers were never an option, if that's what your are basing your argument from. I actually predicted 300k on this forum, which was a similar number to some other people using their brains

  • How did your army friends find the show :?: Converted :?: lol
