After the huge success of their New Evolution World Tour in 2012, 2NE1 will make a comeback on the concert stage after a year and three months.
2NE1 is a four-member South Korean hip-hop girl group composed of Lee Charin (CL), Park Bom, Gong Minzy, and Sandara Park.
2NE1 will kick off their world tour in Seoul, South Korea, for a two-night concert on March 1 and 2 at the Olympic Park SK Handball Stadium.
Filipino Blackjacks, 2NE1’s fan club name, received their biggest Christmas surprise yet as Sandara, runner-up of ABS-CBN’s Star Circle Quest Season 1, announced on her Twitter account last December 26 that Manila is included in the 13 cities (or more) that their group will be visiting for their concert.
What’s up Manila?!?

2NE1 will be performing in Manila on May 17, 2014.
Sandara, now known as Dara, expressed her excitement over their stop in Manila on May 17 because 2NE1 will be celebrating their fifth anniversary on that day.
Sa may 17 ang concert namin sa Manila. Sobrang special ang araw na yan dahil 5th anniversary ng 2ne1 ang may 17!!! Yeah! Magcelebrate tayo!— Sandara Park (@krungy21) December 26, 2013
Aside from the Philippines, 2NE1 will also visit Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, China, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Unlike their previous concerts, 2NE1 and their management, YG Entertainment, did not disclose any information about the concept and the title of the concert.
The girl group will return in the Philippines two years after their first-ever major solo concert, titled 2NE1: The Party in Manila, held at the SMART Araneta Coliseum on June 4, 2011.
