Following on from her successful UK debut last year, our favourite scary-haired J-Pop songstress returns to these shores in April for a repeat performance.
As part of the ‘Nanda Collection World Tour 2014’, Kyary will also be visiting the USA, France, Germany, Canada and Australia. Her London date will take place at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 29th April.
Kyary’s UK concert is likely to be a cut-down version of her full-on Japanese performances, such as the theatrical wonder that was her Yokohama Arena gig last weekend. As with the Perfume concert last year (which also took place at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire), the venue lacks the space to accommodate the visual spectacle that usually accompanies these performances. On the plus side, the intimacy of the gig is likely to score some points with the Kyary fans attending.
Kyary’s theme for 2014 is apparently “Evolution” as she unveils her new persona as ‘Super Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’. The 31st January marks Kyary’s 21st birthday – a date that will see her staging a special birthday live event in Tokyo.
Also, the 29th January will see the release of her new DVD 100%KPP WORLD TOUR 2013 OFFICIAL DOCUMENTARY, charting her global adventures in 2013 (including last years London show).
A new Kyary single is also scheduled for release this February. No details on the title of her single release have been announced, although the Limited Edition will apparently feature a special choreography video by Kyary’s dancers.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be performing at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Tuesday 29th April. Tickets for the concert will be on sale from 9am on Friday 24th January.
