  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Collaborates with Shelter Nanyo Hall in Yamagata for LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project

    13.May.2022 | FASHION / MUSIC / SPOT

    Last month, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu performed on the Gobi Stage at Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States. The singer has now returned to Japan for the second half of her ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ seeing the singer performing 30 shows across Japan. The tour will conclude with a solo performance at Budokan in October. 

     

    In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities and has been attracting major attention. Kyary’s newest collaboration in Yamagata has been announced ahead of her concert there on May 13!

    The singer will be collaborating with Shelter Nanyo Hall in Nanyo, Yamagata, a small town of only around 30,000 people. The hall is the world’s largest wooden concert hall, made entirely from laminated local cedar. It uses the most advanced fire-resistant technology for wood in Japan and was certified as the world’s largest by Guinness World Records in December 2015. The multi-functional hall can seat over 1,400 people, and the property also features a Japanese-style tea room, meeting rooms, an open tree-growing space, and more.

     

    “I want the local population to be incredibly proud of this magnificent wooden structure,” said Norihito Shimanuki, the hall’s director. “Through this concert hall, we’d like to promote Nanyo and Yamagata Prefecture both domestically and internationally.” 

    The collaboration logo for the newest partnership was inspired by the ‘KPP NANDA COLLECTION LIVE in HAWAII’ visual. The one-night-only concert was held in July 2014. Since the main focus of this team-up is ‘wood,’ the visual’s palm tree has been transformed into a cedar tree!

     

    A collaborative T-shirt is also on sale featuring the new logo and the singer’s 10th-anniversary logo. The shirt is available on the LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project website for two weeks only starting May 12. Support Japanese businesses and pick one up while you can!

    Rock band ONE OK ROCK has released a DVD and Blu-ray of their first acoustic live concert ‘Day to Night Acoustic Sessions,’ originally performed from July 22 to July 25, 2021. The band performed at Kawaguchiko Stellar Theater at the foot of Mt. Fuji and the show was applauded globally across social media last year. 

     
    The band previously uploaded a series of teaser trailers and behind-the-scenes videos on YouTube to tease the new release. On April 20, the full live video of the band performing Mighty Long Fall appeared for a limited time on the video-sharing site.

These special editions will be discontinued as soon as they sell out, so fans won’t want to hesitate. The included booklet also includes interviews with the members and crew, as well as more information about the group’s next album and upcoming projects.

  • ONE OK ROCK Releases Blu-ray and DVD of Acoustic Concert from 2021

    26.February.2022 | MUSIC

    Rock band ONE OK ROCK will release a DVD and Blu-ray of their acoustic live concert ‘Day to Night Acoustic Sessions,’ originally performed from July 22 to July 25, 2021. The band performed at the foot of Mt. Fuji and the show was applauded across social media last year. The DVD and Blu-ray will be available on April 20, 2022.

     

    All songs performed during the concert were rearranged specifically to be played acoustically. Bringing together strings, keyboards, chorus, and percussion, the venue was enveloped in a unique acoustic sound not typical for ONE OK ROCK. This was the first time in a year and a half that the band had performed in front of a live audience due to the pandemic, and the number of fans allowed at the venue was extremely small. Since so many fans weren’t able to attend, this release has been highly anticipated! The limited-edition versions include a CD of the concert, a first for the band.
