JJCC to Invade Texas, Meet Fans This Summer: Exclusive
Jackie Chan's K-pop boy band JJCC is making their first visit to America big.
Billboard can exclusively reveal that the five-member group will hit a series of events being touted as the "JJCC Fire in Texas Tour" throughout the Lone Star state for a whirlwind week this summer. The trek includes a concert, fan signings and an event where you might just get the chance to go roller skating with the guys.
Here's the run down of events:
July 8: An appearance on DKNET 730 radio station in Dallas that will be livestreamed to fans.
July 10: A press conference and performance at Austin nightclub Elysium for their monthly "I Love Kpop" night. VIP tickets grant fans priority entry the venue and meeting the band via a "hi-touch" high five event.
July 12: An appearance at KpopSkateNight at Bear Creek Roller Rink. VIP 1 tickets grant fans priority entry the venue and a pre-signed poster while VIP 2 tickets will give them priority entrance, and access to a fan signing and group photo.
"This will be the multi-national group's first time visiting the States, and hopefully will give a small preview of what's to come in the future," says CG&J Productions, who is staging the events along with Multifacetedacg Productions and Jackie Chan Group Korea.
Adds Multifacetedacg's owner and creative director Ashley Charlton Griffin: "Organizing activities for them in Texas is a sure way for the state to further enhance a reputation of being the premiere location in the South for K-pop events."
JJCC made their debut on the K-pop scene last March with the hip-hop/R&B hybrid track "At First," whose accompanying video has more than 1.3 million views on YouTube. The quintet have since followed up with three more singles and dropped their EP Jjcc 1st Mini Album last August.
