Formed in 2001 as a trio, Epik High first gained experience in the underground hip-hop stage in Seoul. They later debuted under a K-pop agency and became frontmen of the Korean Hip Hop stage.
Despite not following the usual path towards stardom, they became well-known by the general audience thanks to their album Swan Songs (released in 2005) and one of its hit songs, Paris. It’s been 14 years since this song about the European city was released, yet 2019 will mark the group’s first European tour.
Korean Hip-hop is a popular genre in Europe. Many artists already toured Europe – very successfully. So it is only normal that one of the groups who made the genre known internationally also gets to showcase their talent in three different countries.
Epik High’s Europe tour will include :
– Amsterdam, Q-Factory – Friday March 15th
– Paris, YOYO Palais de Tokyo – Sunday March 17th
– London, Electric Ballroom – Wednesday March 20th
Tickets will go on sales next week so visit Onion Production‘s Facebook page for more information.
