JACKSON WANG Delivers Electrifying Set At London’s Eventim Apollo (12/01/23)

Chinese star JACKSON WANG brought his MAGIC MAN WORLD TOUR to London last night.

Delivering an electrifying set for UK fans, the show at London’s Eventim Apollo was part of Jackson’s first ever solo headline tour. 

Described as an “unforgettable night” by one fan on social media, and dubbed an unreal experience… a once in a lifetime show” by another, Jackson performed tracks from his recently released album ‘MAGIC MAN’ including “Just Like Magic”, “All The Way”, “Go Ghost”, and “Drive It Like You Stole It”, as well as fan favourites from earlier releases ‘LOST & FOUND’ and ‘MIRRORS’. 

During the four act performance the artist also gave two lucky fans the chance to get up on stage for his tracks “I Love You 3000” and “The Moment”, before performing a four-track encore featuring three remixes of classic Jackson Wang songs.

Part of a broader world tour for the artist, the London show followed the release of Jackson Wang’s wildly successful sophomore album ‘MAGIC MAN’ (out now). Featuring 10 tracks including hit singles “Blue”, “Blow” and “Cruel”, the record was described as having “a dark and plodding swagger” by People Magazine

Inspired by ‘70s rock, ‘MAGIC MAN’ is an energetic and gritty exploration of toxic love and self-discovery. The MAGIC MAN persona is a truly new horizon for Jackson, allowing him to showcase a side of him his fans have never seen.

“‘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,” the artist explains. 

As a solo artist, Jackson is the first Chinese singer to perform on the Coachella main stage. He has performed in the grand finale at HITC Festival, and his latest album landed in the Top 15 on the Billboard 200 with Jackson ranked as #13 on Billboard’s Artist 100 in 2022.

A globally acclaimed artist and creative director, Jackson’s goal is to showcase a Chinese-influenced sound on the international music stage, and highlight Chinese and Asian culture worldwide. In his ascent Jackson has amassed over 90 million followers across social media, performed on The Late Late Show With James Corden, appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and performed at The Match Bangkok Century Cup 2022

With further dates expected in 2023, standby for further news from Jackson Wang very soon…
