Korean American K-pop star Eric Nam has announced North American dates for his upcoming Before We Begin World Tour.
The stateside portion of the tour will follow select dates in Asia taking place in January with North American dates kicking-off in February. Stops will include Boston (Tickets), Philadelphia (Tickets), San Francisco (Tickets) and more. Tickets go on sale on Friday, Dec. 6 with select presales beginning on Dec. 4.
The tour is in support of his first all-English EP titled Before We Begin in hopes to make a bigger splash here at home, branching out from his K-pop beginnings overseas. Joining Nam on tour will be Phoebe Ryan and Frenship, for select dates.
Eric Nam's Before We Begin EP is his first all-English EP released on Nov. 14 and shows the 30-year-old diving into his emotions and experiences including breakups. It's a contrast to his Korean language releases that were made for the region's tastes. With BTS and others breaking the mold, American-born Nam is working towards an industry shift with this EP and tour that highlights Asian talent not only from Asia but right in America. The EP features the newly released single "Congratulations" featuring Marc E. Bassy.
