The aftermath of the concert saw dozens of environmental workers tirelessly cleaning up the venue.
BlackPink's highly anticipated 'Born Pink' concert at My Dinh National Stadium in Vietnam became a major focus for music lovers and media, both domestically and internationally. The group performed for two consecutive nights on July 29 and 30, attracting a staggering number of fans.
The concert in Hanoi was a huge success, with 36,000 tickets sold on the first day and approximately 31,000 tickets on the second day, totalling an impressive 67,000 Blinks in attendance.
However, post-concert, the stadium and its surroundings were left in a disheartening state. The majority of the spectators left all sorts of garbage scattered around their seats, including posters, banners, plastic glasses, and more. While some fans were responsible and consciously cleaned up after themselves, the scale of the litter left many disappointed.
The aftermath of the concert saw dozens of environmental workers tirelessly cleaning up the venue, with numerous garbage trucks making frequent appearances to collect the waste left behind.
Photos of the post-concert scene went viral on social media, sparking discussions and debates among fans. While some expressed frustration at the lack of responsibility shown by concertgoers, others sympathized with the time constraints that led to the untidiness.
In response to the criticism, some Blinks explained that they were instructed to evacuate the stadium immediately after the show, leaving them with little time to collect their garbage.
BlackPink's 'Born Pink' concert:
The tour has been a massive success, which began last year. With Hanoi as the final stop in Asia, the tour has earned approximately 163.8 million USD, selling more than 900,000 tickets. Each night of the show brings in an impressive average of more than 4 million USD, with an audience of about 22,600 fans.
While the concert was undoubtedly a triumph for BlackPink, the aftermath served as a reminder of the importance of environmental consciousness and responsibility, both for fans and concert organizers.
