Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has announced her second world tour, which is scheduled to begin in Seattle, Washington on Feb 13, and will feature 16 performances in 11 countries.
Kyary, 20, a Japanese model and blogger turned recording artist associated with the Harajuku district of Tokyo, made the announcement after performing at Yokohama Arena in front of 12,000 adoring fans on Sunday. Kyary sang her 23rd hit single, "Yume no Hajimarinrin," which is scheduled to go on sale Feb 26.
Her show featured daring acrobatics, fantastic costumes, and even a fanciful stage battle, Sankei Shimbun reported Monday.
The artist expressed her gratitude to her fans, saying, "The reason that only three years after my debut I now have the opportunity to sing on this great stage is because of you! I had such a great time, thank you everyone!"
Kyary made her debut with viral video hit "PonPonPon," written and produced by Nakata Yasutaka of Capsule fame, in the summer of 2011. Her first world tour last year, titled “The 100% Kyary Pamyu Pamyu World Tour 2013,” featured 13 concerts in eight cities throughout Europe, the United States and Asia.
Last year, she also provided the theme song for the Japanese release of “Star Trek Into Darkness," having been selected by director JJ Abrams.
The upcoming tour will include North America (including Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago and Toronto), England, France, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Thailand.© Japan Today
