Japanese folk rock duo Yuzu held that 2018 arena tour entitled “BIG YELL II ~Great Voyage” at Yokohama Arena on August 4, 5 and 7. They performed their new song Muscat―which was released on August 1―for the very first time in front of fans at the shows.
Mustcat is an upbeat song that serves as the new theme song for the popular ongoing anime series Crayon Shin-chan. In the anime’s opening video, a mascot character called Yuzu Man, created by Yuzu’s own Yujin Kitagawa, makes an appearance.
Yuzu Man and Shin-chan both appearaced as special guests at the band’s Yokohama Arena performance which the crowd reacted excitedly to. Together with the Yuzu members, the mascots performed their iconic dance created by popular Japanese choreographer Lucky Ikeda. The anime also appeared on the stage screens and the crowd joined in with the dance.
This tour began in April with the Yokohama Arena shows being additional dates. 12,000 fans attended each show which saw changes made from the main tour. Further additional dates have also been announced: they will play at Marine Messe Fukuoka on August 14 and 15 before heading to Osaka-jo Hall on October 21 and 22. They will perform to an estimated 35,000 people.
Fans are looking forward to seeing what kind of performances they have in store for the next set of dates.
