Tens of thousands of fans cheered and screamed for Blackpink's second and final show of the "Born Pink" tour in Vietnam on Sunday night.

The four girls of the K-pop group showed up on stage at Hanoi's My Dinh Stadium at around 7:50 p.m., kick starting their performance with "How You Like That" and "Pretty Savage." There were no changes to the order of song listing from Saturday night, but there was extra choreography involved.

The girls and the fans' energy and enthusiasm of the second night was as palpable in the air as the first one's.

Before the show, Jisoo, Jennie and Lisa's personal Instagram accounts all uploaded clips of Saturday night performance. "I can't wait to see you tonight Blinks," Jisoo shared.

Hanoi was seeing light rain outside the stadium in the afternoon, forcing the show's organizers to deploy vehicles to drain the water. Fans showed up early at around 4 p.m.

Starting Sunday morning, ticket sales for the final Blackpink concert in Vietnam have been hiked up, with the prices of certain VIP tickets going up to VND30 million ($1,266).

Blackpink’s first-ever show in Hanoi takes place on July 29 and 30. This will be the group’s last stop in Asia on their Born Pink world tour.

The tour has grossed around $163.8 million before Hanoi, with more than 900,000 tickets sold.

This makes Born Pink’s the highest-grossing girl group tour of all time, surpassing the previous record set by Spice Girls ($78.2 million).
