Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Sells Out London’s Islington Academy

In little over a day Harajuku’s ‘Kawaii Ambassador’ Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has managed to sell out London’s 800 capacity O2 Islington Academy. Her UK debut show will take place on Wednesday 13 February as part of her 100%KPP WORLD TOUR 2013. So far two other European dates have been announced; a show in Brussels (Belgium) with Vk* Concerts on 9 February, followed by a date in Paris’ La Cigale on 10 February.

Congratulation, the young star’s creating a Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, and we wonder how long it will be until other Japanese pop acts decide to venture out into Europe seeking similar success.

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
