Pop music duo EGOIST produced by member Ryo (Supercell) released their greatest hits album Greatest Hits 2011-2017 “Alter Ego” at the end of last year which has gone on to perform successfully in both the physical and digital versions.
Songwriter Ryo and vocalist Chelly performed at Kitec-Star Hall in Hong Kong on June 23. At the very end of the show, they announced a 2018 Asia tour which earned wild applause from the crowd.
The venue was packed with 1,500 fans, and a strange air of excitement filled the room as they waited for the anticipated arrival. Everything cut to black, signalling the start of a memorable night, as Euterpe began to play. The song is popular as one of the insert songs heard in the anime series Guilty Crown. EGOIST are known for originating in the anime series where they performed as a fictional band, eventually going on to huge success in the real world.
With the song over, and the crowd already fallen into the world of EGOIST, The Everlasting Guilty Crown began to play. The instant it came on, there were howls of joy so fierce it almost felt like the building was coming down.
A string of popular hits followed, including Extra terrestial Biological Entities, Ame, Kimi o Tsurete, and Suki to Iwareta Hi. The set was hit after hit, leaving no time to breathe and leading the excitement to an ever-growing rise.
When a breather finally came, the duo greeted fans in Chinese. This was their second performed in Hong Kong. They spoke warmly to fans, who clapped over and over.
Things cranked up into full gear as they performed some of their most well-known songs, including Reloaded, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, and Namae no Nai Kaibutsu. To finish up the main part of the show they played their treasured ballad Kimi Sora Kiseki which brought fans together as one.
Cries and clapping sounded through the room as fans called for an encore. Chelly stepped out onto stage once more, and surprised everyone with some covers. First up was Désir by GARNiDELiA which she co-performed together at a previous concert. This was followed by the famous Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari by Supercell, another band spearheaded by Ryo. The Hong Kong fans couldn’t predict there would be surprise covers like this, and it showed in their explosive excitement. The concert finished with EGOIST’s debut single Departures ~Anaya ni Okuru Ai no Uta~.
Just when everyone thought there couldn’t be anymore surprises, the words “EGOIST ASIA TOUR 2018” appeared on screen, satisfying the anticipation of fans already waiting for the next show.

For the tour finale held in Nagoya, GARNiDELiA, who was in charge of the ending theme song of “Fate/Apocrypha”, was called forward to finish the special live with the ending song “Désir”.
GARNiDELiA’s stunning performance was met with a large applause. However, EGOIST and GARNiDELiA had a surprise up their sleeve. Upon announcing their collaboration song, Chelly signalled the start of the song with “So, please listen!” The intro for one of EGOIST’s best numbers “The Everlasting Guilty Crown” reverberated through the venue, triggering cheers and screams from the audience that shook the whole building.
The unimaginable, special collaboration of this famous song lifted the day, leaving fans tingling with excitement. Amongst the roaring crowd, GARNiDELiA stood on the stage, presenting “Kimi Sora Kiseki” – an ultimate fan favourite. With that, the live came to a close.
No other venue gave such an applause as this one. Although the live finished at this location, the applause rang for such a long time that Chelly made another appearance on stage.
