Here’s what we know about Jackson Wang’s upcoming solo world tour
About Magic Man
Magic Man is Wang’s sophomore music album which soared to the Top 15 on Billboard 200 and bagged a position in the Top 13 on Billboard Artist 100 in 2022. The highly successful 10-track album comprises hits such as the newly rolled-out “Blue” as well as previously released “Blow” and “Cruel.”
The high-voltage album has heavy ‘70s rock influence and explores the realms of toxic love and self-discovery. This is an uncharted arena for Wang who is seen to be quite vulnerable and confused.
Commenting on the album Wang said, “Magic Man is the ultimate form of oneself, having gone through different peaks and valleys of life to arrive at the most authentic version. Everyone is able to become their own form of Magic Man. It’s not a mystery, everything is just magic.” He is also the producer of this album, along with Daryl K and Henry Cheung.
The world tour will commence on November 26, in Bangkok, Thailand and conclude on February 4, 2023 in Dubai, UAE. Ticket booking details will be announced later.
