Note: This page is from a previous year’s HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market event, please see our schedule for an up-to-date list of performances and activities.
Unfortunately, Rie Kaneko of Lady Baby will not be attending HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market 2015 as previously announced. This is due to personal matters that are out of our control.
We can happily confirm that Ladybeard and Rei Kuromiya will still be appearing and performing Lady Baby’s hits, in what will prove to be a great line-up.
LADY BABY, Japan’s quirkiest new music group, are making their international debut at HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market 2015! The combination of Japanese idols and a harder, Metal sound is given an extra edge, both aurally and visually, by the addition of the most unique idol of all. Formed by the costume maker “Clearstone”, this group smashes all borders, be they gender, nationality, culture, age, or values to create Japanese idols with a new feeling. Expect this trio to make a huge splash!
LADY BABY will be performing and appearing on our Live.Japan stage throughout the event. To whet your appetite, (and maybe practice your own dance moves in the mean time), check out the official video for their first single, “Nippon Manju” or find it on itunes. Plus, you can see just how fired up they are to come to HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market in their special promotional video below!
LADY BEARD, “Kawaiicore” frontman of the group, brings a certain je ne sais quoi to the band that’s lacking anywhere else. With the slogan of “singing and dancing to destroy”, this former wrestler’s gutteral vocals give the band a little more bite when it comes to the harder side of their music, and his fame has shot skyward via the internet over the last few years. Now in high demand for TV programmes and events, he remains a 5-year-old at heart.
A more traditional dash of kawaii cuteness in the unit’s image is provided by the twosome of Kaneko Rie and Kuromiya Rei, both were entrants in Japan’s Miss ID (idol) 2015 event! Kuromiya Rei in particular proved her performing chops by winning that national competition and also serves as the lead singer of BRATS, while Kaneko Rie was discovered by 2013 Miss ID winner Tamashiro Tina.
