  • 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.

  • Live Report from RADWIMPS ‘FOREVER IN THE DAZE’ Tour

    16.December.2021 | MUSIC

    On November 23, 2021, RADWIMPS released their new album ‘FOREVER DAZE’ on the 16th anniversary of their major-label debut. A new report has been published highlighting the first day of the band’s new tour on December 4 at Pia Arena MM. 

     

    RADWIMPS Official Live Report

    “It went by in the blink of an eye. Thank you so much for coming out. All I can do is say ‘thank you.’ There is so much more I’d love to say, but when I see all of your faces like this, all I can manage to get out is ‘thank you.’ Meeting each and every one of you makes this all more real. I’ve been waiting to be able to do this for such a long time. Thank you.” 

     

    This is how vocalist Yojiro Noda thanked the audience with all his heart and soul at the end of the show. The first day of the ‘FOREVER IN THE DAZE TOUR 2021-2022’ was a joyous occasion after nearly two years of the pandemic, with fans gathering to praise the band’s first new album in three years ‘FOREVER DAZE.’ 

     

    Day one took place on December 4 at Pia Arena MM in Kanagawa. In addition to RADWIMPS members, drummers Mizuki Mori and Masafumi Eno, as well as guitarists Taiking (Suchmos) and Mizuki Masuda (miida) joined the band for this tour only. Since the tour has just started, I won’t spoil the set list and production, but the ensemble brought some incredible energy to the stage. RADWIMPS seemed to take on new life with each and every song performed, and the audience was slowly and steadily inspired by both Noda’s incredible vocals and the powerful instrumentals. As Noda said in a comment regarding the new album, “No matter how hard things get, I can always make music.” 

     

    How will the new songs found on FOREVER DAZE fit in with the band’s classic tracks? The performance features graphics from visual artist Kento Yamada that will wow audiences more than they could ever anticipate. The curtain has risen on this new RADWIMPS. Get ready to see them in a whole new light.

    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!
