Avex’s Super Girls to debut on new idol label
SUPER☆GiRLS, a 12-member idol group that was formed by Avex in June, held a live performance at Shiodome-AX on Saturday. During the event, it was announced that the group’s CD debut has been set for December 22, when they will release their first album “Chouzetsu Shoujo.”
Avex is creating a new sub-label called iDOL Street limited only to idol artists. SUPER☆GiRLS will be the first ones on the label.
Saturday was the 18th birthday of member Rika Shimura
, and she was surprised with a birthday cake and song on stage to celebrate the occasion. However, she was not the only one to get a surprise – the entire group was unaware that their CD debut would be announced that day, so they were moved to tears when the news was suddenly revealed.
The group will hold their first actual concert on October 23 at Harajuku Astro Hall
. After the tickets sold out, they added a second concert at the same venue for November 21. Besides those shows, they will be holding a free mini-live tour sponsored by retail chain Ito Yokado
, taking nine stops at Ito Yokado stores and Ario malls around the country between November 3 and December 5.
