Perfume announces Tokyo Dome concert in November
On November 3, Perfume will hold their first concert at the Tokyo Dome. They will become just the second technopop unit (after YMO) and second female idol group (after SPEED) to have a concert at that venue.
The concert will be titled “1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11,” in reference to the three members preparing for their 11th year together as a group. Perfume has come a long way since their indie days. After teaming up with producer Yasutaka Nakata (of capsule) in 2003, they finally made their major label debut in 2005. In 2008, they achieved #1 on both the single and album sales charts, and they performed back-to-back shows at Nippon Budokan. Now, they will perform for a crowd of about 50,000 fans at their Tokyo Dome concert.
