  • 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.
