Owl City to hold Seoul concert in November

Apr 21,2018
American pop artist Owl City will hold a concert in Korea on November 11 at Blue Square in Hannam-dong, central Seoul, according to concert organizer Private Curve.

Adam Randal Young, the man behind Owl City, debuted in 2007 with an EP titled “Of June.” He began to study music as a way to overcome his insomnia.

In 2009, the singer hit No. 1 on music charts in 26 regions with the song “Fireflies” from his second album “Ocean Eyes,” making his name as an electro-pop artist.

The musician’s use of a synthesizer and instruments gives his songs a rhythmic and cheerful vibe, and because of this, the artist’s songs were often used as the background music in many Korean commercials.

Owl City will release a new album titled “Cinematic” in June, and in celebration of it, the artist will go on a world tour, the November concert in Korea being part of this tour. The singer has visited Korea in the past for the Jisan Valley Rock Festival in the summer of 2012, as well as his own concert in the winter of the same year and he came back to perform at the Seoul Jazz Festival in 2015. This will be his fourth visit to Korea.

Tickets for the concert will be available from April 27 at Interpark.
