Singer-songwriter Hitomi Yaida has announced that she will hold a nationwide singing and singing tour, “Hitomi Yaida Singing and Singing Tour ~GUITAR TO UTA 24-25~” as the first anniversary project for her 25th anniversary since her debut.
It will be a long tour with 28 performances in 25 locations across the country, starting on July 28th (Sunday), his birthday, at Duo Music Exchange in Tokyo and ending on April 4th, 2025 (Friday) at WWWX in Tokyo.
Hitomi Yaida made her major debut on July 12, 2000 with her first single “B’coz I Love You”.
Their 2nd single “My Sweet Darlin”’ became a huge hit, and their 1st album “daiya-monde”, which included the same song, became a million-seller, and they went on to release many hit songs.
Last year, the song “Ainoroi”, which was written as the theme song for TV Asahi’s Thursday drama “Yuria Sensei’s Red Ito”, was produced with Yaffle as the sound producer, and it is still fresh in my memory that it became a hot topic along with the drama. On July 12, 2024, his creative activities will mark the 24th anniversary of his major debut, and he will enter his 25th anniversary year.
She also has a reputation as a live artist, and since her debut in 2000, she has delivered songs in a variety of styles, from live houses to dome performances, with vocals, bands, and orchestras. He travels all over the country with his true essence, “guitar and singing.” The setlist is scheduled to cover each era over the past 25 years, so please listen to it while thinking about those eras.
The first advance registration for the official fan club “Yaiko’s Eye” will start from May 17th (Thursday).
Expectations are high as various 25th anniversary projects are planned in the future, but first of all, please join us for the first national singing tour and enjoy the timeless songs old and new at the venue. [Message from Hitomi Yaida]
■For the “Hitomi Yaida Singing Tour ~GUITAR TO UTA 24-25~”
To be honest, when I debuted, I never thought I would still be singing 25 years later.
A huge miracle for me. Thanks to all of you, thank you as always! And now I feel like, “If I’ve come this far, I’ve gone as far as I can go! Wow!”
I’m really looking forward to my first national singing tour in a while. Please come and see us.
