YG Entertainment partnered up with Live Nation again to bring us 2NE1’s first world tour, New Evolution. Tour dates and locations have just been confirmed for their US concerts. As it turns out, the ladies will be visiting us sooner than their labelmates Big Bang, whose tour makes US stops later this year in November.
New Evolution is making 10 stops in 7 countries, and the first locations to be confirmed (after the kick-off concert in Seoul) are on the East and West coasts of the United States. First on the schedule is Friday, August 17 at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. The week after, 2NE1 will hit up the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on Friday August 24. Both events will begin at 8pm.
Tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10AM PDT (1PM EST), so make sure to have your fingers poised to click the “Reserve Now” button as early as possible. 2NE1 has already proved their enormous global popularity time and time again, so the last thing you want to do is procrastinate— just purchase your ticket while you can.
