  • 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!

  • Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s First Performance of ‘Maybe Baby’ Takes Place on First Day of New Tour

    19.January.2022 | MUSIC

    Celebrating the 10th anniversary of her major label debut, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is back in the news. The artist will perform at this year’s Coachella, one of the largest music festivals in the United States, and released her first full-length album in three years ‘Candy Racer’ in October 2021. On January 16, Kyary embarked on the largest tour of her career, ‘Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE,’ which will see the singer performing 30 shows across Japan.

     

     

     

    The first show was held at Atsugi City Cultural Hall in accordance with all local guidelines to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. Fans lined up, excited to see the artist for the first time in three years–and when Kyary took the stage clad in a bright green wig and costume, she showed her appreciation for those who have waited to see her again. 

     

    “Long time no see! I’m sorry I made you wait,” the singer said as the audience replied with massive applause. “Today, I’m starting my first tour in three years. I want to give you all a performance that will make you glad you came!” 

     

    The artist began by performing her newest track Maybe Baby for the first time. The setlist included 21 songs total including songs from Kyary’s newest album ‘Candy Racer’ and legendary tracks like PONPONPON and Fashion Monster

     

    In conjunction with the nationwide tour, the “LOCAL POWER JAPAN Project” was launched to energize Japan through the appeal of regional towns and cities. The 30 stops on the new tour include many that Kyary has not visited before, and were chosen based on the singer’s desire to perform for fans who may not typically be able to attend one of her shows. Wanting to show her gratitude, this is also a chance to inspire local industry and tourism, both of which have been hit hard by the ongoing pandemic. 

     

    Keep an eye out for what Kyary Pamyu Pamyu does next!

    Performer Comments

     

    Sayaka Yamamoto

    I’ve worked with SHE’S musically in the past, and I’m so excited to work with them again like this. It will also be the first time for me to perform against an entire band alone, so I’m also super nervous. I’ll do my best to put on a great show!

     

    SHE’S
    After arranging and producing the song oasis for Yamamoto, she invited us to see her solo concert. I remember getting goosebumps because she had evolved so much, and she was so incredibly cool. I can’t wait to see what kind of live show this will turn out to be, and I hope we can sing something together!
