Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and J-POP SUMMIT in San Francisco
J-Pop Summit has teamed up with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu to start the 2016 event off with a bang! On Friday, July 22, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will play at the Regency Ballroom in the heart of San Francisco as part of her 5ive Years Monster Tour which celebrates her illustrious five-year career.
The Regency Ballroom is a favorite of Japanese artists and bands and claims Babymetal, DIR EN GREY, The GazettE, and Kyary herself among those who have graced its stage. West coast fans should make sure to attend this show because it's your only chance to see her on this side of the United States. A few days later on July 25th Kyary will appear at the Playstation Theater in New York City which will be east coast fans' chance. Doors for the San Francisco show are at 6pm with the show at 7pm. If you want to be up close expect to have to get there much earlier than 5pm. Lines for the Regency Ballroom tend to snake down one of the nearby alleys.
The greatest hits album "KPP Best" is also available for purchase and download if you need a bit of a review on Kyary's music. The 24 track album is available on iTunes here and for physical copies from Amazon here.
J-Pop Summit remains one of the greatest values in Japanese entertainment ever since its creation many years ago and has featured names like Eir Aoi, Jam Project, and Tomomi Itano. This year's event will take place on July 23-24 at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco and features multiple musical acts and appearances as well as art, exhibits, and more. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be joined by GARNiDELiA, Yanakiku, WORLD ORDER, amongst others. The Ramen Festival also makes its return.
Tickets for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's concert are still available at $40 online from AXS. You can also purchase them day-of for $50 at the door.
