2NE1 To Visit Los Angeles and New Jersey in August for 2012 World Tour “New Evolution.”

Following YG Entertainment‘s announcement last week that 2NE1 would be visiting seven different countries for their 2012 first world tour, their locations for their U.S. concert stops have now been revealed.

It has been announced today that 2NE1 will be visiting New Jersey and Los Angeles as a part of their “New Evolution” tour.

On Friday August 17, they will perform at the Prduential Center in Newark, New Jersey. One week later on August 24, the group will head west to perform at Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California. Tickets are set to go on stale starting this Saturday, June 23 at 10am PST.

“2NE1’s world tour ‘New Evolution’ will be a concert that shows each member’s more ‘evolved’ stage and musical ability. All the staff working on this tour worked with global pop musicians in the past, and we will reveal more details in the coming weeks,” an official from YG Entertainment said.

“Currently, we’re planning for 10 cities in seven different countries, but we might add more countries because of high demand from overseas promoters,” YGE added.

Before they start their world tour in a few months, 2NE1 is planning to make their Korean comeback sometime this July.

Meanwhile, label mates Big Bang will also be visiting the US in November for their “Alive 2012 World Tour.” They will be performing at the Honda Center in Los Angeles on November 3, followed by a concert at the Prduential Center in Newark, New Jersey on November 9.
