Greetings readers! This past Saturday (September 20th), rhythm.connection was given the pleasure of covering the first ever Canadian concert for Korean-American singer and variety show host Eric Nam. Performing to a sizeable crowd at the prestigious Winter Garden Theater in downtown Toronto, Eric performed a number of his hit songs, as well as some cover performances. To amp up the crowds even more, he engaged in some fan activities including charades, a Q&A session and serenading two lucky fans who wrote letters in to be considered. For your reading pleasure, here is my recap of the Eric Nam showcase!
Prior to the actual showcase starting, VIP and VVIP ticket holders were able to get up and close with Eric with the pre-show fan signing. Eric greeted each of his eager fans with the love and care that many have come to know him by.
Without further ado, at 7:30, Eric took the stage and opened up with his song ‘Love Song’. Fans screamed at his appearance, many of whom flew in from as far as the Caribbean region and the US.
Throughout the night, Eric played two games including charades with three lucky fans, and Perfect Oppa (a game well known to those who watch Eric host on Arirang’s hit program After School Club). He also serenaded two selected fans with the song ‘Say Something’. He also answered five fan-submitted questions in the Q&A session.
To end the show, he performed his hit song ‘Ooh Ooh’, as well as an encore of cover songs with B2M Entertainment trainee and Montreal native Yohan Lee (he performed Hoya’s rap parts on several of the Ooh Ooh live promotions). Eric and Yohan closed the show with a bang by reprising ‘Ooh Ooh’ one last time. Following the end of the showcase, Eric held a hi-touch session with VIP and VVIP ticket holders. Many left the show with fun and memories to be had.
