The promoters & YG & me(pre Born pink) believed BP is also long overdue to stadiums
Again BP also sold their 200K arena tour with expected 98%-100% attendance very much like how BTS did in 2018
U should know venues are booked atleast 1 year in advance so this is well before born pink dropped
Rather than rose bowl,I think they will play SoFi stadium
I'm expecting met Life tho
Yet they headlining festivals that attract 60K-70K audience alone for headliners set 💀
Also u should know BTS also went from arenas to stadiums just like that
Their 2018 NA arena tour did 200K attendance then they did a stadium extension in spring 2019 that had a further 300K attendance
It'll be similar for BP or atleast that's what AEG & YG believe 🚶
Whether they can get 95%-100% attendance on their stadium concerts is what remains to be seen
It is not even debatable that BTS had more hype in the west back in 2018 than Blackpink have ever had. Because the thing is Blackpink still don't have BTS 2018 numbers in the west. 'Fake Love' had more streams back then than any Blackpink song has ever gotten. Debuted inside the top 10 and spent 6 weeks in the chart. All without any push and Korean song at that. 'LY : Tear' did more digital units (also physical units) back then than any Blackpink album has done. First foreign album in 11 years to top BB200. BTS got more certifications from Europe only in 2018 than Blackpink have gotten throughout their career. So yeah it is stupid to base it on that they did 200k audience each. Because it is very much visible that BTS had more audience.
Also at the end of that arena tour BTS did Citifield show to test the waters if they can do stadiums in the US or not and you know what they succeeded. That's why extension stadium tour happened.
