Apink Announces U.S. Tour, First for a K-Pop Girl Group Since 2012
Apink will kick off 2016's K-pop tours stateside with its first North American trek in January.
The innocent-leaning girl group will visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas and Vancouver for their Pink Memory Tour. Apink had previously visited U.S. to perform at the 2015 Korea Times Music Festival in L.A.
Most notably, Apink's tour marks the first Korean girl group to stage multiple shows in North America since 2NE1 held arena concerts on the East and West coasts in 2012. While a slew of male acts have toured America, females are a much rarer sight.
Tickets go on sale on Nov. 28 at 12 p.m. local time of the show's city via KPOPME.
Earlier this year, Apink releases their second full-length album Pink Memory that spawned the single "Remember," which hit No. 13 on Billboard's Top Twitter Tracks chart and No. 14 on World Digital Songs.
