K-Pop group BLACKPINK will be stopping in Hamilton as part of its world tour announced Monday night.

The four-member group will be touring in six North American cities, with Hamilton being the only Canadian city.

The band will be at First Ontario Centre on April 27.

In September, K-Pop boy band BTS performed in Hamilton on a world tour, with the city again being the only Canadian stop.

Other stops for BLACKPINK will be in the U.S., including Illinois, California, New Jersey, and Texas.

The Korea-based music genre has become a worldwide phenomenon, with some bands selling out stadium shows in cities across the globe. 

Fans lined up days before the show to see BTS in Hamilton last summer.
