Whitney Houston is kicking off her latest tour to promote her new album, “I Look to You” in Seoul next month. It will be Houston’s first time to perform in Korea.
It can be difficult to see foreign music in Korea, but it seems that lately more acts are coming to the country. I am still annoyed that I missed going to see John Legend, Oasis and Billy Joel when they all came through Seoul, but sometimes the word they were coming to town never made it down to Gwangju in time.
Here is a little list of some folks coming to Seoul this year. My advice is to go to the bands website and purchase tickets there. Please alert me of any other shows, big or small, coming to town so I can post them!
