Get your ‘Champagne’ on and enter the alluring world of South Korean alternative hip hop veterans, EPIK HIGH! Being the first KPOP act to tour APAC since the pandemic, CK Star Entertainment is proud to present and announce their Asia Pacific Tour 2022 – Chapter 2 in Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Taipei. After having sold out their shows across Singapore, Melbourne, Sydney, Bangkok and Jakarta, EPIK HIGH shows no signs of stopping.
Fans in Manila can rejoice at the good fortune of being the first Southeast Asian stop in the Asia Pacific leg of Chapter 2 of the tour. For one night only, EPIK HIGH Is Here – Manila will be staged at New Frontier Theater on Wednesday, 30th of November 2022.
Having previously made waves in the Philippines at the SM Skydome for their EPIK HIGH Parade Tour in 2014, this new tour marks the trio’s second concert in Manila in conjunction with the release of their highly anticipated 10th studio album in two parts, ‘EPIK HIGH is Here 上 (Part 1)’ & ‘EPIK HIGH Is Here 下 (Part 2)’.
The split of the album was intentional, mirroring the way traditional Korean novels were released in two parts giving time to take a break and process what you have consumed before moving on to the next. According to a recent interview with RollingStone magazine, the message behind this newest release is that EPIK HIGH is here even when you think no
one is willing to listen. This album shares wisdom that only comes from the experience of 20 years of lows and some pretty epic highs.
Fans of EPIK HIGH – High Skool – will learn the group’s independence has merely whetted their capacity for producing the experimental and provocative music all have come to love. Expect to rave to emotive hip-hop track “Born Hater” or universally loved hit “Happen Ending”, and be challenged not to join in a nostalgic sing-along to classic chart-topper “Fly”. Along with the characteristically playful antics of the forever young-at-heart man band, fans can be assured of a night to remember like no other.
About EPIK HIGH
A trailblazing trio formed by Tablo, Mithra Jin and DJ Tukutz, EPIK HIGH debuted in 2003. Their singular blend of hip-hop and sharp lyrics, which openly discuss themes like mental health and social issues, turned them into one of the most pivotal groups in Korean music. Throughout their twenty years together, they released hundreds of anthemic songs, inspired artists like BTS and were the first Korean act to ever play at Coachella in 2016.
