Since the very beginning of his career, He has been one of the favourites to lead the new generation of Cantopop. He has been described as a breath of fresh air in the HK music scene.

Chan has also been successful in his work in the Mandopop scene. He has won numerous awards in both Mainland and Taiwan, most notably Taiwan's Golden Melody Awards. "Admit It" was another notable work of Chan, which led to a nomination for Golden Melody Awards' Best Male Singer; the award was ultimately won by Gary Chaw. Next year, he was again nominated for Golden Melody Awards' Best Male Singer (for his work in Mandarin album "Don't Want To Let Go"), the award went to Jay Chou. However, Chan won Album of The Year for "Don't Want To Let Go".

Chan has been named by Chinese critics as the next God of Songs (歌神) after Jacky Cheung. However, Eason has more than once clarified that he wishes to build his own name instead, and not just be the successor of Jacky Cheung. There is a duet called 天下太平 sung by Chan and Jacky Cheung in the album Perfect Match by Albert Leung,Ronald Ng (伍樂城) released in April 2006. Chan and Cheung have collaborated on other occasions as well. They sang a duet of Cheung's 頭髮亂了 in a fundraising campaign for SARS victims in 2003.

Chan not only sings but also plays some instruments in his live concerts, such as the piano, the guitar, the harmonica, the accordion, etc. He frequently showcases his musical talent by incorporating instruments into his live performances. Chan is also a songwriter who has written many songs, some included in his albums.

In 2009, Chan performed in "PAX Musica 2009" in Tokyo. He sang seven songs including a Japanese song by Koji Tamaki called "Mr. Lonely". This was his first time performing in Japan publicly. After that, Japanese Musician Ikuro Fujiwara openly praised Chan for his stage charisma and expressed hope to collaborate with Chan in the future. Chan plans to promote his musical works in Japan in 2010.

In 2011, Chan released a new album titled "Stranger Under My Skin" on 22 February. Released in November, Chan's latest album titled "?" features a piano performance by his seven-year-old daughter.

In 2012, Chan released the 《...3mm》Cantonese album on 10 August 2012. Followed by a remix version of the album, titled 《...3mm Remix》releasing on 8 November 2012.

Chan has held five major theme concerts at the famous Hong Kong Coliseum starting from 1999, a proof of his enduring popularity and his status as one of Hong Kong's most beloved singers. His first series of concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum, a total of four Eason's 99Big Live concerts, came four years after his debut in 1995. Even today, that amount of time is considered short for a singer to gain the general approval and public support needed to perform at such a prestigious venue. Two years later in 2001, Chan held a series of nine The Easy Ride concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum under the wing of his second record company, Music Plus. In 2003, he again held a series of seven The Third Encounter concerts with the support of Music Plus. In the spring of 2006, after a year of rest and another change of record company, Chan held his fourth theme concerts, a total of nine Get a Life concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum. A year later, Chan broke his own record while holding his fifth series of concerts named Eason's Moving on Stage. During October and November 2007, he completed a total of 16 hugely successful Chan's Moving on Stage1 concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum. As of January 2008, Chan has held 45 concerts at Hong Kong Coliseum.

Chan began his Moving on Stage World Tour in February 2008. The already completed stops include: Taiwan, United States, Canada, Australia, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Malaysia, Macau, Singapore, Kunming, Tianjin, Chongqing, Beijing, Shenzhen, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Hangzhou. His following stops were Guiyang, Beijing, Foshan and Guangzhou. Chan's Moving on Stage World Tour ended with Eason Chan's Moving on Stage 26 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (16 August 2009).

Months after his Moving On Stage Concerts came to a finish, Chan began another tour in Mainland China, called "Ninety Minutes of Bliss". Instead of playing at grand venues, Chan began this tour hoping to get closer to his fans by playing at smaller venues. He completed two concerts in Nanjing and three more in Shanghai before and during Christmas 2009. Two more concerts were held in Beijing on 29 and 30 May 2010.

In between his tour, Chan held his sixth record-breaking Theme Concerts at the Hong Kong Coliseum for a total of 18 concerts, scheduled from 20 March to 6 April 2010. This new series is called Duo Eason Chan 2010 Concert (《DUO陳奕迅2010演唱會》).

After the May "Ninety Minutes of Bliss" concerts in Beijing, Chan went to Europe for his first ever European Tour scheduled for three cities, London on 3 May, Manchester on 6 May and Rotterdam on 8 May. The venues for the three concerts were respectively, Royal Albert Hall, Manchester Apollo and Ahoy Rotterdam. Tickets to his London and Manchester concerts were each sold out within hours of ticket release. Chan is the second singer after Roman Tam to perform in the prestigious Royal Albert Hall.

At Chan's concert in Beijing on 29 September 2011 at the Beijing Workers' Stadium, Faye Wong made a special guest appearance, surprising many as Wong has previously never accepted any invitation to appear as a special guest at another singer's concert; this was the first time that she broke her "rule," and she gave her "first" to Chan.

Continuing his Duo Eason Chan 2010 ConcertWorld Tour, Chan made his second appearance in London, the O2 Arena on 23 April 2012. He became the first Asian artist playing in the O2 stage, making a record that the concert was sold out in 20minutes to 12,000fans, where Chan found it was surprising and was thankful to have so much international support.

In 2015, Chan held his 100th show of Another Eason Life's World Tour in Montreal, Canada, on December 4, 2015. This was the first time ever that a Chinese singer has performed at the Centre Bell.


On 18 and 19 August 2005, Chan performed the musical Wrestling with God (人神鬥), the second programme of Love Music Tour 05 organised by Netvigator. He was the actor and producer. Stars featured in the show included famous comedian Jim Chim (詹瑞文), singer Wilfred Lau (劉浩龍), Taiwanese singer Mavis Fan (范曉萱), Best Supporting Actress Winner of the 23rd Hong Kong Film Awards Josie Ho (何超儀), pop duo at17 and Soler. The story was about the competition among different angels (played by the featured stars) to protect the only man alive in the world (played by Eason Chan). The secret guest, veteran singer George Lam (林子祥), played Chan's late father. The audience were impressed by the performers, who told the story through song and dance.

Charity work

Chan has been Orbis International's Sight Ambassador in HK since 2006. He has travelled to India and Sichuan, China, visiting kids and elders with visual impairment, in an effort to raise funds for Orbis. Eason has also been an active participant in Hong Kong's fundraising campaigns such as the 2003 fundraiser for SARS victims and the 2008 fundraiser for Sichuan earthquake victims.

On 7 July 2007 Eason performed at the Chinese leg of 'Live Earth' in Shanghai.

Constance Chan's name was given by his good friend and famous lyricist Wyman Wong. Chan gave up smoking after the birth of his daughter. He reportedly did it for Constance and the health of his voice. However, in 2007, he admitted in his concert that he has resumed smoking due to stress from his then ongoing "Moving on Stage" world tour. As of 2017, he has constant relapses.

On 9 December 2009, Chan carried the 2010 Olympic Torch through the downtown of Montreal, effectively becoming the only person of Chinese descent to carry both the Summer and Winter Olympic torch.
