26.September.2018 | MUSIC

Hikaru Utada released her seventh album Hatsukoi on June 27 this year to huge sales. MTV Japan recently named it “Best Album of the Year” on the MTV VMAJ 2018, and it continues to be talked about across the country.


Now, the singer, celebrating her 20th anniversary this year, has unveiled a key visual for her first nationwide Japan tour in 12 years entitled “Laughter in the Dark Tour.” The image ties in with the title of the tour. Anticipation is sure to be surging amongst fans as to what kind of performance Utada will give.


General sale tickets dropped on September 14. Tickets will be put through a lottery system which will randomly select those who have applied for tickets to attend. Applications close on September 30 at 23:59 (JST). Pre-sale lottery tickets were also placed inside copies of Hatsukoi but the deadline for those has already passed, so you’d best be quick if you want to see her live on her first nationwide tour in 12 years.
