Girl group Blackpink successfully completed the North American leg of its world tour, according to YG Entertainment on Tuesday.

The group concluded its tour on Nov. 20 at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles.

During its concert on Nov. 19 at the same venue, Cuban-American singer-songwriter Camila Cabello made a surprise appearance during member Jisoo’s solo performance for her song “Liar.”

Other American celebrities including Selena Gomez, Usher, Olivia Rodrigo and Gracie Abrams came to watch Blackpink’s two-day LA concert.

“We are very grateful for our fans who made tonight so beautiful!” said Blackpink during its final concert in LA.

The group kicked off the tour “Blackpink World Tour [Born Pink]” at KSPO Dome in Songpa District, southern Seoul, on Oct. 15 and began its concerts in the United States in Dallas, Texas, on Oct. 25.

During its North American tour, the group met with some 200,000 fans through 14 concerts in seven cities.

Blackpink will continue its world tour in seven cities in Europe through November. Next year, Blackpink will tour Asia and Oceania, ultimately meeting with some 1.5 million global fans, its agency YG Entertainment said.

The quartet — comprised of Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa — has been setting new records with its latest full-length album “Born Pink” and its lead track “Shut Down.” Late last month, Blackpink became the first female K-pop act to top the Billboard 200 albums chart.
