16 Comments

Singer Namie Amuro, 31, put in a two-and-a-half hour non-stop performance at Yokohama Arena on Sunday night, exciting 10,000 fans with a vast array of dance moves and nine different costumes.

Amuro's nationwide "BEST FICTION" tour began at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on Oct 25 and will finish at the Morioka Ice Arena in Iwate on May 31. The 60- show tour is expected to draw 450,000 fans and set a new attendance record for a Japanese female solo artist. Her fourth best-of album - "BEST FICTION" - has sold close to 2 million copies.

On Sunday night, Amuro sang songs from that as well as her new single "Wild/Dr." The single is currently being used by Coca-Cola in its "Wild Health" commercials, and will go on sale March 18.

Amuro will perform in her hometown of Naha for the first time since December 2007, when she heads down to Okinawa for shows on March 21 and 22.

she must be in pretty good shape to keep this up for 60 shows. Too bad the crowds are so small.

Wait a minute - non-stop show including nine different costume changes? Worth the admission fee to watch the stripping.

I assume you're referring to the fans. I couldn't endure her for five minutes on or off stage.

What no half hour MC every 3 songs to discuss what she had for breakfast. For shame.

Probably the music was non-stop and either she or the back-up singers were moving their lips and hips.

Namie's singing is not for me but I still love the cute little sex kitten. I respect her for her endurance in this tour even though It's not my kind of music. I'd still marry her.

Don't care for her music, but I respect her for her endurance in life. Most people would curl up and die if they had to live her life outside music.
