Japanese Pop Star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Kicks Off American Tour on Monday at PlayStation Theater
June 15, 2018
Think of singer, model, blogger and Japanese pop star Kyary Pamyu Pamyu—who “mixes the cute and the grotesque in her music and image,” according to AllMusic—along the lines of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani, paying equal attention to substance and style. She released three well-received LPs—2012’s Pamyu Pamyu Revolution (stream it below), 2013’s Nanda Collection (stream it below) and 2014’s Pika Pika Fantajin (stream it below)—before putting out a greatest-hits album, KPP Best (stream it below), in 2016. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (above, performing “Pon Pon Pon”) recently celebrated her 25th birthday by launching her fourth world tour, and she kicks off the American leg on Monday night at PlayStation Theater.
