Eric Nam announces world tour as K-pop groups resume offline shows, fans 'bless' him
We've had K-pop groups like BTS, Monsta X, Epik High and VeriVery announce overseas concerts
Looks like our global lockdown days that began in 2020 is finally behind us. With a majority of the people getting vaccinated and the restrictions easing up, the world is returning to a state of normalcy. This has been evident with people flocking to attend different events. Cinemas have been reopening, matches have been allowing a live audience and offline live concerts are once again taking place. K-pop groups like BTS, Monsta X and P1Harmony are having overseas events and Eric Nam is the latest artist to take this bold step.
The K-pop star first had his North American tour in 2018 and was ready to go on his first world tour in January 2020. Unfortunately, the Latin American and North American leg of the tour was canceled due to the pandemic. The Korean-American artist has since been focusing on his podcast and collaborations with the likes of DAY6’s Young K and Indian singer Armaan Malik. Eric Nam also released his latest single ‘I Don’t Know You Anymore’ on October 15. Well, it looks like that was just a sneak peek at what he has in store for fans.

The massive undertaking includes 46 concerts that he will be headlining in 46 different cities. He has released the dates for the tour that begins from January 24, 2022, and will supposedly end on April 13, 2022.
Where to buy tickets
The world tour will be spanning cities in North America and Europe. He will begin in Phoenix, Arizona and have the last American concert in Texas. The European leg of the tour will begin in the second half of March in Sweden. Tickets will go on sale on October 22 at 10 am at the city’s local time. It will be available on Eric Nam’s website. He has also assured fans that these are not the only cities, and more destinations will be added to the tour over time.
Other than Eric Nam, other K-pop artists have also announced their tours and concerts overseas. We first had BTS break Twitter with their LA concerts for ‘Permission to Dance’. Monsta X, TWICE, ONEUS and VeriVery also announced concerts and tours. The latest groups to join this list were Ateez and Epik High.
