Jesse McCartney – The Resolution Tour Vietnam - will be the very first time Jesse visits HCM City.

"Bleeding Love", the international mega-hit that he co-wrote will also be performed.
“I have taken a lot of left and right turns over the years, I’ve done some more R&B and urban music, and now I’ve kind of landed back in the Pop world, and I think part of the appeal of my new songs like “Better With You” and “Wasted” is that they do remind people of the songs they grew up listening to just 10 – 15 years ago like “Beautiful Soul”, “Because You Live”. For the first time in HCM City, I expect to meet some amazing Vietnamese fans, people I have never met before, I've been looking for this for many many years I also expect to try some really good Vietnamese food. I'm a big fan of Vietnamese cuisine. I’m gonna get me some Phở, hopefully I find an exclusive Phở place. Yeah, food and fans are what I'm looking forward to most” said Jesse McCartney regarding his new music and his first time in Vietnam.
The show will start at 8pm, July 9 at Soul Live Project Complex, 216 Pasteur, Dist.3, HCM City. Ticket prices are between VND550,000 to VND800,000.
