Perfume Set to Intoxicate Europe This July

2013 is the year of J-pop. First Harajuku heroine Kyary Pamyu Pamyu left London giddy in February with a sold out show at the O2 Academy Islington, and now the mighty electro-pop threesome Perfume have just announced that they’re London bound on Friday 5 July as part of their ‘WORLD TOUR 2nd’ tour, which includes Germany (3 July) and France (7 July).

Tickets for the show in London go on sale first to O2 customers from 9am on 13 April, followed by Live Nation pre-sale from 9am on 14 April, and general sale from 15 April 2013. Tickets will be available from this link, priced at £22.50 plus fees.

Promoters Live Nation had this to say about the group;

Perfume are a three piece techno-pop girl group from Hiroshima, Japan, consisting of Aa-CHAN, KASHIYUKA, and NOCCHi. Formed in 2000, the group released their debut major label single in 2005. Their album “GAME” – released in April 2008 – reached number 1 in the Japanese chart, since then, all of their subsequent albums have also taken the number 1 spot.

In 2010, Perfume performed to 50,000 fans at a sold out show at Tokyo Dome and also received the Best Asian Pop Artist award at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA). Their first Asian tour – “Perfume WORLD TOUR 1st” – in 2012 also saw them perform to sold-out crowds in four Asian countries.

Known for their futuristic concept and creative dance performances, don’t miss your chance to see Perfume live this July.

Anyway, despite being lovers of rock here, we have a special place in our hearts for the likes of Kyary and Perfume. Check out the video for FAKE IT from Perfume and see what you think:

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.
