Singapore has been facing some consecutive days of serious humidity. Lots of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu fans waited eagerly to witness the first day of the pop princess’s long anticipated 3rd world tour “KPP 5iVE YEARS MONSTER WORLD TOUR 2016”. Kyary will be heading to 8 cities around Australia, Europe, America and Asia to play 9 shows to an estimated 30,000 fans. Her tour kicked off to a successful start at the Esplanade Theatre in Singapore on May 13th.
The Esplanade Theatre was packed with around 1800 crazy fans. The Singapore concert saw people from neighbouring countries pop over to see Kyary too, including fans from Malaysia, the Philippines, and India. Just like at her previous world tours, there were lots of girls cosplaying Kyary from the front of the crowd to the back wearing the same outfits we see the pop princess dolled up in for her music videos.
Kyary appeared on stage to a huge roar of screaming fans, opening up with the her song “KPP ON STAGE”, which is the first track on her upcoming best-of album “KPP BEST”. Kyary’s tour is themed around “flowers”; fittingly, the stage bloomed as fans witnessed Kyary’s gorgeous outfit which was inlaid with beautiful multi-coloured flowers. Kyary performed her popular hits one after the other – songs which are very well-known even overseas. The excitement never let up once as huge screams of joy echoed throughout the venue after every single song.
“World tour starts from today! The tour’s theme is flowers! Here’s a vegetable DJ! Copy his moves! This is my 3rd Time in Singapore. I had chicken rice for lunch today. Hope you enjoy the show!!” Kyary was challenged with MC’ing in English, which flowed fluently, garnering praise from the fans.
She then went on to say, in Japanese, “The next places I’ll be heading to are Sydney and Melbourne in Australia! My world tour has only just begun, so I want to continue getting more and more pumped up!”, words which echoed a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment.
For the show’s encore, Kyary held her dance lecture, which has become a regular feature in her concerts. The crowd danced together with Kyary which of course went down a storm! Kyary’s music, fashion and existence surpass the limits of language and allow for a universal sense of unity, something that is supported by her fans. With this fact in mind, the first day of her world tour enjoyed great success.
In other crazy news, Kyary is scheduled to finish up her tour with two days at the legendary Nippon Budokan in Tokyo on August 19th and August 20th!
