RADWIMPS, the acclaimed Japanese rock band, is excited to announce their first concert in Jakarta as part of RADWIMPS Asian Tour 2023. Promoted by PK Entertainment and SOZO, RADWIMPS will perform on Sunday, July 30th 2023 at Basket Hall Senayan GBK. Tickets will be available for purchase starting Monday, April 10th 2023 at 10 a.m. (GMT+7 / Jakarta Local Time) exclusively at www.radwimpsinjakarta.com.
Formed in 2001 with a major label debut in 2005, RADWIMPS has garnered a broad fan base with the younger generation at the core. Their worldwide following has grown substantially due to the success of their popular tracks like “Zenzenzense,” “Dream Lantern,” and “Sparkle.” RADWIMPS’ musical endeavours span beyond Japan, as they have toured extensively worldwide.
The tour is a celebration of RADWIMPS’ return to the international live scene for the first time in 3 years after Covid 19 pandemic. They will kick off the North American leg on April 16th in San Jose, and will hit various North American cities before moving on to the European leg in May. The American dates and European dates sold out so fast that in order to accommodate the demand, the band added additional dates as well as moved to bigger venues in many of their stops.
RADWIMPS’ lead vocalist, Yojiro Noda said, “I don’t even know how to express my excitement. It’s been three years and we’re all three years older. But our music has matured too. I will come to see you as if you’re a lover I was longing to reunite with, so be ready! Can’t wait to see you all in person.”
Following their work on the soundtracks for “Your Name” in 2016 and “Weathering With You” in 2019, RADWIMPS collaborated with filmmaker Makoto Shinkai to create songs for the movie “Suzume”, where the film score has won the 46th Japan Academy Film Prize 2023 for Best Music. “Suzume opened in Japan on November 11th 2022. It was #1 for 3 consecutive weeks with a gross of over 14.22 billion Yen at the box office to date. The international rollout started on March 2nd in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau, and became the number one movie in Indonesia, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea and Vietnam.
