YUI Live at Budokan Report
Singer/songwriter YUI just finished up her first live tour in over two years, “HOTEL HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN,” with her final performance at the Nippon Budokan on November 2nd.
The grand finale for the show was held at the Budokan stadium over two days, the 1st and 2nd, and was her second one man event in three years. Her tour was for the release of her new album, “HOLIDAYS IN THE SUN,” and she wanted the stage production to be similar to a one room hotel.
During the encore, she mentioned, “I wanted to have the same environment as I had when I did my first live.“ The show had a very loose, natural feeling, as it featured her singing to her own acoustic guitar accompaniment, sitting casually as she played such hits as “Good-bye Days.” The spacious stadium remained silent as YUI’s voice filled it, loud cheers only being released when she was done performing.
As a special treat for the Budokan audience, she debuted her single “Rain” that is due out on November 24th. The song was already chosen as the theme song for the Fuji TV drama, “Perfect Report.”
