Concert Review: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s One-Night-Only Live Performance at the Sacred Izumo Shrine

01.April.2019 | MUSIC

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu released her fourth studio album in autumn 2018. The album, which was produced by Yasutaka Nakata, takes an oriental approach. Kyary kicked off her live tour “Otono Kuni Live Tour 2019”, which was based on one of the most impressive songs on the album called “Otono Kuni”. Kyary took to the stage at one of Japan’s most loved world heritage sites to enhance the album concept. On Saturday 30th March, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu kicked off her live performance “Maboroshi no Utopia ~Izumo-taisha no Yoru~” at Izumo Grand Shrine in Shimane, which is known to be the origin of Japan’s many gods.

Japanese singer Akihiro Miwa, who is a big fan, praised Kyary Pamyu Pamyu on her performance: “You were like the reincarnation of Izumo no Okuni herself”, he stated, referring to the originator of Japanese traditional Kabuki theatre “Izumo no Okuni”, who worked as a server at Izumo Shrine.

 

Kyary dressed in Japanese-style clothing decorated with gold chains and crystals. Although her fashion was criticised for not staying true to the old times, she also received compliments that her personal style as an artist has pierced through the generations and rules the times.

As an artist whose outrageous fashion just cannot be comprehended, Kyary has jumped all over the world to perform at numerous stages. Now, with the words “the modern day Izumo no Okuni” spoken by Miwa kept close to her heart, Kyary pushed onwards and took over the stage at Izumo Shrine!

 

As you walk amidst the majestic atmosphere when approaching Izumo Shrine, all of a sudden, you are faced with a giant frame surrounding a stage. Excitement rose as people wondered just how Kyary Pamyu Pamyu was going to present her story from inside the picture frame. The inside of the picture frame was decorated with plants that are often seen in European fairytale books, along with wild rabbits and butterflies. You can also catch a glimpse of a pop border and polka dots. You just can’t categorize this artwork into any time period or say it is based on just one country! It cannot be summed up as being “Japanese-style” either. This exquisite world is very Kyary-like!

 

First, a movie-like opening played before the audience, through which the story was explained. The God of Music called the “Oto Ryu” protected the country of music (Otono Kuni) so that the people could live a peaceful life filled with fun and dancing. However, one day, this peaceful living was snatched away by an evil spirit. The God of Music was sealed away into a mountain and the plants and trees withered. The people forgot what music was and lost their smiles. The God of Music could sense the calamity from inside the mountain and began to cry. From the dragon’s tears, the Princess of Music; Kyary Pamyu Pamyu was born with the purpose of restoring the country’s smiles and peace.


Gentle, orchestral music started to play, leading into the song! Kanzen Keitai”. The majestic figure of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu was accompanied to the stage. Against the white curtains, her golden dress floated like a goddess – very much like the descendant of the god of Izumo. Kyary’s clear voice resonated through Izumo forest. For a moment, the audience was pulled into her mystical fairytale world.

When the curtains opened, the frame was filled with cherry blossoms in full bloom. At this point, Kyary performed her killer tunes “Kira Kira Killer” and “Tsukema Tsukeru”, to which the crowd suddenly went wild. Kyary then announced: “This live performance is limited to tonight only! I decided to include some of my older songs for nostalgia’s sake!”

She did not just perform songs from her new album Japamyu, but also some of her songs she hasn’t performed in a long time from “Suki Sugite Kiresou”, “Noriko to Norio” and “Unite Unite” to her debut song “PONPONPON” which was a world hit! This line up was overflowing with variety and really kept the tempo going!

As the surrounding area got darker, the forest and cherry blossoms were illuminated with the lighting and the area became a mystical land. After another video was played on the curtains, Kyary returned to the stage in a cute and cool outfit! This time, she wore a Japanese-style pink dress and arrived on a pastel pink cloud! She then kicked off with one of her most famous songs: Ninja Re Bang Bang, but this time in a cappella style! This is the first time she has ever performed this song in a capella!

 

She then announced to her fans: “The atmosphere here at Izumo Shrine is just too good! There are times I feel like crying even though I’m mid-performance!”

 

After relaying her deep thoughts to her fans, she moved on to “Enka Natrium”, for which she taught her fans some easy choreography so that everyone danced as one!

She then continued to perform some of her biggest uptempo hits “Invader Invader” and “Fashion Monster”, at which the climax of the night was reached. Then, with the power of Kyary’s music, the God of Music was freed from the mountain and came spiralling down to earth. The grand figure of the dragon could be seen projected on the curtains. As this concluded the end of the main part of the live performance, Kyary immediately performed the main song of the evening “Otono Kuni”, which wrapped up the evening.

 

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s then performed her brand new song KIMI GA IINE KURETARA for the first time! This song will be used as the theme song for the new drama ‘Mukai no Bazuru Kazoku’; the drama which is currently big news in the media! The theme of the song is SNS and was heavily inspired by the drama. Whilst singing her new pop tune with passion, she performed a dance with one dancer for the first time. She described the dance as the “most difficult she has ever done”.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed her original performance “Otono Kuni” in the special and traditional environment of Izumo Shrine. As we are approaching 2020, which is the year that Japan will host the Olympics, Japan is aiming to spread its culture worldwide now more than ever! Kyary, who was compared to the founder of Kabuki theatre Izumo no Okuni, mixed traditional culture and innovation to present a unique show. This evening was living proof that Kyary’s unique culture is being spread worldwide.

 

For the second part of her Otono Kuni Tour 2019”, Kyary unveiled her next venue to be Minami-za, the kabuki ‘holy ground.’ This tour will be a link to “Kyoto Mirai Matsuri 2019: Minami-za Reopening Commemoration”. On the last day of the Heisei era of Japan (30th April), Kyary will hold a collaboration live performance with Minami-za in Kyoto! This will be a one day-limited special performance called “Kyary Kabuki Kabuki”. Kyary, who was compared with the founder of Kabuki herself, is sure to provide a dramatic collaboration performance! Just what kind of fusion of traditional culture and modern reform will she hit us with this time?

 

There’s just no stopping Kyary Pamyu Pamyu!

  • Concert Review: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Performs Halloween Concert Online For Fans Worldwide

    02.November.2020 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s first-ever online concert “THE FAMILY 10.31” was held on October 31, aka Halloween Day, where she performed on the streaming site SHOWROOM. Kyary wanted to make this one-night-only concept concert like a movie, and so incorporated elements from horror films as Kyary herself is a horror fanatic.

    The show began with a creepy looking man appearing on the screen who called himself the Butler. The scene was set deep inside a forest which houses a certain residence. This residence belongs to The Family who decided to live in the forest to hide form humans.

     

    Fans watching the stream became part of the concert. In the story, viewers find themselves lost in the forest at the residence, and must pretend to be monsters so as to not be found out by The Family who detest humans. They are invited to a banquet hosted by The Family’s Master and Mistress and also meet a roster of other characters including the Twins and of course the eldest daughter who is accompanied by a black cat. The daughter was played by none other than Kyary Pamyu Pamyu who wore dark and smoky makeup and donned a black dress with a white cross and frills down it. The stage itself was themed on the residence’s reception hall where Kyary performed hits such as Fashion Monster and Kira Kira Killer.

    On another stage, fans who had purchased special tickets could be seen at home enjoying the concert using the streaming platform’s SHOWROOM Arena (β) function.

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu also performed Ninja Re Bang Bang Steve Aoki Remix live for the first time with fans cheering in the back. The song was remixed by DJ Steve Aoki for the Nintendo Switch™️ global title Ninjala. The song is an arrangement of Kyary’s hit song and made to be more dance and club. Fans at home waved their penlights and towels to the track.

    Kyary changed into a different red and black outfit which looked like a rafflesia and performed more hit numbers like Invader InvaderMondai Girl, and Harajuku Iyahoi.

    Kyary was also able to do multiple things she wouldn’t normally be able to at an ordinary concert, like taking screenshots, or being reflected in the mirror as she sat in front of the dresser in the middle of the stage while performing Chami Chami Chaming. The entire set was a spook-filled Halloween extravaganza from the mind of Kyary.

    The final song of the main set was of course Kyary’s Halloween anthem Crazy Party Night ~Pumpkin no Gyakushu~. Kyary wrapped up her show by changing into a T-shirt to perform Kamaitachi for the first time as the encore, surprising fans as she so likes to do.

     

    The entire set was an incredible 18 songs which were packed full of creepy-cute fun for fans to enjoy.

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Spends Summer Eating Noodles With Fans in First Online Fan Meeting

    17.August.2020 | MUSIC

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu hosted “KPP ONLINE MEETING VOL.1” on August 16, 2020, her first online event exclusive to members of her fan club “KPP CLUB.”

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s new Japan solo tour, scheduled summer festival and event performances, and bus tour—the latte of which had been held up until last year for fan club members only—were unfortunately cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But Kyary still wanted to find a way to have fun with fans, which led to the creation of “KPP ONLINE MEETING.” The first meeting saw around 500 fans which Kyary could see all of on the 10 screens she had prepared in front of her for the live stream.

     

    Fans donned their Kyary merch on stream and prepared some original Kyary-themed backgrounds for the online meeting. The fans who got to attend, chosen by Kyary herself, enjoyed a close-up chat with Japan’s queen of pop.

    In the run up to the event, Kyary posted a question on Twitter asking people what they wanted to do during the online meeting. The option of dancing together was adopted, and so after teaching fans the choreography to her song KAMAITACHI which dropped in April this year, fans danced together with her, making it feel like a live show.

     

    Kyary also had her own idea she wanted to try out with fans, which was eating somen noodles together with everyone. Everyone prepped their own somen and made a toast with their bowls. Other fun things Kyary got up to with fans included a drawing challenge, scavenger hunt, a lottery where fans could win something of Kyary’s, and more.

    At the end of the event, Kyary took a photo together with all 500 fans on the 10 screens. Kyary could feel the energy and warmth from fans through the screen, and ended the event with a huge smile on her face. She plans to continue holding these online meetings for fan club members going forward.

    During the stream, Kyary also announced a DVD and Blu-ray release of her tour from last year, Oto no Kuni Live Tour 2019. Kyary originally had a Japan nationwide hall tour scheduled for this autumn. When she watched the footage of “Oto no Kuni Live Tour 2019,” she said, “When I thought about how I can’t do a show like this at present time, I cried.”

    The DVD and Blu-ray includes two performances: Maboroshi no Utopia ~Izumo-taisha no Yoru~ which was held at Izumo Grand Shrine in Shimane—and which Kyary spoke about in our interview with her last year—and her kabuki themed show Kyary Kabuki Kabuki held in Kyoto at Minami-za, the oldest theatre in Japan. The DVD and Blu-ray are available for everyone to buy, including non fan club members.
