On December 14th cheeky and aggressive 9-member idol unit Cheeky Parade held their “Cheeky Parade’s Triumphant Return from NY Party” at Zepp Diver City Tokyo.

Having been the first Japanese artist to perform on the main stage at the CBGB Music and Film Festival, this was Cheeky Parade’s first solo event since their return to Japan. During the daytime performance, they began with “BUNBUN NINE9′”, ” C.P.U.!?”, “Kizuna PUNKY ROCK!!”, ” Mugendai Shojo ∀”, and “CANDY POP GALAXY BOMB!!” nonstop before taking a break to greet the audience and share their thoughts about the amazing year they had. Reflecting upon the whirlwind year they had, they also shared their hopes for 2015. Mariya Suzuki had one of the more interesting wishes when she said, “I want to become a Power Ranger (Super Sentai)!”

As they returned to the stage, the members showed off their new outfits that featured three different colored jackets (red, black, and navy) and punkish skirts covered in zippers and big stitches. From there, they ended with “Together”, “PiNPON MUSIC”, “Challenger”, “Cheeky Fighter”, and “Cheeky dreamer”.

Things got even wilder during the evening show as Cheeky Parade performed nonstop for over an hour for a total of 14 songs in a row! Having performed 14 songs, they returned the stage for encore with outfits (black T-shirt and denim short pants) from their early days.

In the last, Yuna Sekine shouted saying “Cheeky Parade will definitely make our dream come true”. They ran through 2014 with so many events, and we hope they keep rushing and be active both inside and out Japan 2015.

The release of Cheeky Parade’s photo book (release : February 2015) , and having solo concerts in Osaka and Nagoya in the spring 2015 were also announced at the concert.
