Fans in Singapore would definitely be familiar with this name. “Riecho” is coming back to Singapore for the third time and she sure is excited to meet all her fans she made since STGCC 2015 and 2014. Apart from working as a solo idol, Riecho is also the leader for the group Phantom Voice, who will be performing at Tokyo Idol Festival and Summer Sonic.
Since her first appearance in Singapore back in 2014, Riecho has since performed at Paris’ Japan Expo, expanding her overseas live experience and getting to know more overseas fans. Now we wonder if she has forgotten some of the Singlish that she picked up the last time she dropped by.

GuildStars (Akiba Guild)
Coming from a casino themed amusement park in Akihabara, the maids at Akiba Guild are considered to be an attraction themselves. While they are not playing a round of poker, these maids spend time interacting with customers, engaging them in conversation and entertaining with card tricks. Having been to Vietnam’s Danang Club 99 casino, the members of GuildStars took full opportunity to see what overseas casinos were like. Someone, bring them to the casino at Marina Bay Sands!

Road of Alice
Road of Alice, composed of Chi-shamin and Mai Oomori (ex-Jewel Kiss member) was formed after they met each other during the stage play, Alice in Deadly School Alternative SAPPORO, and developed a great working relationship.

This will be Road of Alice’s first overseas live, and the members are looking forward to it!
