South Korean guitarist Sungha Jung will show off his acoustic fingerstyle technique in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on April 16 and 17.
The 20-year old musician, also known as the "Prince of Guitar," played in Vietnam three years ago.
Jung began to play the guitar at the age of five, after watching his father perform. He learned how to play fingerstyle from the Internet.
His debut video, a cover of "The Pirates of the Caribbean" theme song, has nearly 49 million views on YouTube. It has made Jung an Internet sensation.
Jung released his first album, "Perfect Blue," in 2010, when he was 14.
Both of the shows at Hanoi’s Tuoi Tre Theatre and the Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music will begin at 8 p.m., said organizers.
