moumoon’s First Paris Solo Concert Sells Out Quickly, and is a Huge Success!
The Paris performance of moumoon’s spring three country and eight city tour, moumoon FULLMOON LIVE TOUR 2015 SPRING～OFUTARISAMA～, held on May 10th, sold out quickly and ended as a huge success!
moumoon’s sound and live performances have reached acclaim not only within Japan, but also abroad, and she’s been more active with overseas performances than before. Concerts have been held in France, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and from this year, Austin, Texas in the U.S. at SWSW, and so on. Although this was her third time to travel to France, it was her first solo concert.
However, already the number one ranked most popular Japanese artist for 20 consecutive weeks according to a local TV station and so on, she’s built a local fan base, and tickets to the long-awaited solo concert sold out, with more than 200 people lined up in front of the venue waiting for the concert to start.
moumoon, was welcomed by a packed audience with thunderous applause and cheers, and made an MC interlaced with both English and French, changing a portion of her set to a special set list just for her French fans, for a concert that lasted around two hours. There was non stop applause and cheers from beginning to end, making her first solo Paris concert a giant success.
moumoon also held a solo concert the previous day on May 9th in Lyon, France. After finishing up her France performances, she immediately headed over to the UK, performing with PASSEPIED in London for a two act show, JAPAN UNDERGROUND presents moumoon x PASSEPIED – JAPAN RISING Warm Up @ The Pipeline, and then moving on from Pipeline to a scheduled performance at the world-renowned Music Conference THE GREAT ESCAPE. Due to her rapid advancement through multiple country borders, moumoon is sure to draw attention with her future developments.
Additionally it should be noted that the moumoon FULLMOON LIVE TOUR 2015 SPRING ~OFUTARISAMA~ is different from moumoon’s usual concerts, and is not accompanied by a band, but a concept tour with only two moumoon members seeking to enjoy playing with sound (= OFUTARISAMA), with content that is fundamentally and visually different and has reached acclaim. Unfortunately tickets to all venues have sold out, but there are plans for new songs and a future tour after this tour, and we want to keep an eye out for any future information.
