Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Brings J-Pop Back to Los Angeles

Between her two Saturday performances at this year’s Coachella music festival, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu will be playing her own show at The Fonda Theatre. On April 18th, fans of the J-pop singer will be able to see her performing in Los Angeles for the first time since her 2019 appearance at OTAQUEST LIVE.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is a Japanese singer and model known for her Harajuku style and aesthetic. Having debuted more than ten years ago, she has countless top hits under her belt, including her debut single “PONPONPON.” She signed with Sire Records in 2013 for distribution of her music in the U.S., and has successfully completed four world tours throughout her career. She will also be making her first appearance at the famed Coachella festival this year, and was originally scheduled to appear in 2020’s canceled festival.

With live events put on hold in the previous two years, it did not deter Kyary Pamyu Pamyu from continuing her activities. For one month in 2020, she made a curated selection of her past live concerts available on YouTube to make up for her cancelled shows, and shortly afterwards, she released a digital single, “Kamaitachi.” In the same year, the solo artist also released her first fragrance brand, “Nostalgia Syndrome,” which mimics her favorite fragrant olive scent. In 2021, she released “Gum Gum Girl” as another digital single, and also released her fifth album, “Candy Racer.”

Not known to limit herself in her ventures, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu also launched a hair care brand, “Curuput,” with the goal of science-based hair care to allow everyone to color their hair without worrying about damage. Most recently, Kyary released yet another digital single on January 8th of this year, “Maybe Baby,” which is the opening theme song for video game Ninjala. She is currently on her “Kyary Pamyu Pamyu 10th ANNIVERSARY JAPAN TOUR 2022 CANDY WAVE” tour in Japan, and will take a pause for her U.S. appearances before resuming and finishing the tour in July of this year.
