Notes
  • During the show in Los Angeles, they performed "Whistle (Acoustic ver.)" instead of the original version. During the encore stage, "Stay" was performed instead of "Hope Not".
  • During the first show in Newark, Dua Lipa joined Blackpink to perform "Kiss and Make Up".[12]
  • During the show in Manchester, Blackpink modified elements of their performances with due respect to the approaching 2nd anniversary of the Manchester Arena bombing incident. Specifically, "Ddu-Du Ddu-Du" was removed from the setlist, "Whistle" lyrics and "Kill This Love" choreography were changed. During the encore stage, Blackpink dedicated "Stay" to the victims and those affected by the attack; another performance of "Don't Know What To Do" was added along with the original setlist.[13]
