Fans of GOT7‘s Jackson Wang have been waiting in anticipation for the musician to come to their country since the announcement of his Magic Man world tour.
Following the release of his first physical solo album, Magic Man, Jackson spent a lot of time traveling around the world promoting it at several music festivals including 88rising’s Head In The Clouds in California and the opening ceremony of THE MATCH Bangkok Century Cup as part of the Fresh Air Festival at Rajamangala Stadium.
During live streams Jackson would talk about visiting many locations as part of his tour, even saying that if he didn’t officially tour he’d still travel to a variety of places to perform.
"If everybody listens to #MAGICMAN, I would… Even if I don't have a tour, I'm just gonna travel every country, to every place, just to meet you guys.
"…the next second you will know, I'm in front of your door."

In late September, the Magic Man tour was officially announced along with the first six locations that included Thailand and Europe. Along with these first few dates, the poster included “And More” at the bottom, promising that there would be more locations announced soon.

Shortly after, another fan shared a clear photo of the t-shirt that featured the six locations already announced along with unannounced concert dates in North America and China.
Fans in the locations on Jackson’s shirt immediately shared their excitement, excited that Jackson was bringing the tour to them.

Many fans, however, began expressing their disappointment at the limited places in the shirt. Fans in many places especially seemed surprised about the dates, as Jackson has mentioned wanting to visit places like Mexico and Brazil specifically.
