Australian Namnations, are you ready? We are just a sleep away to the start of Eric Nam’s tour in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
Your favourite singer-songwriter is already in Brisbane, hanging out with kangaroos, crocodiles and cute koalas, having a taste of true Aussie’s barbie and perhaps vegemite-ing in secret. Can you believe it? Doesn’t feel real but Eric Nam is finally back down under!
We know you can’t wait to see South Korea’s hottest talent on stage, we feel you. Strange how slowly time seems to be passing now that we are counting down. But fret not, here’s some fun facts and inspiring milestones to keep you company while preparing for the concert. We’ve included some useful information to make your concert the best ever, too!
WHO IS ERIC NAM?
Eric Nam is one of South Korea’s hottest male soloist with multifaceted talents and multicultural background. Inspiring fellow millennials, there is no limit to what the singer could do. From being named GQ Korea’s “Man of the Year” and ranking in Forbes 30 Under 30 in Asia to being the Honorary Ambassador for the 2018 Winter Olympics. He is also known for his down-to-earth interviews with the cast of “Deadpool 2”, “Black Panther”, “Justice League”, and Hollywood stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Matt Damon, Emma Watson and Eddie Redmayne to name a few.
Owing his fame to 2NE1’s cover of “Lonely”, Eric debuted in 2013 with Cloud 9, a perfect boyfriend image and sweet ballad-heavy music. Garnering global media attention, 2016 was a big year for the singer-songwriter. He released his first U.S single “Into You”, and collaborated with globally renown artists including Timbaland, Gallant and Epik High for his subsequent hits – “BODY” and “Cave Me In” to name a few. Since then Eric is known as the new face of K-pop.
Needless to say, Eric’s star power extends to America – his EP Honestly debuted at #6 on the Billboard World Album Chards, while his breezy electro-pop single “FLOAT” was featured as the soundtrack of “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation”, hitting #1 at the North American box office upon its release. Eric’s North American tour through 15 cities is the best-selling tour of all time by a solo K-Pop artist.
