This summer, Japanese pop musician 2& (DOUBLE AND) will return to the United Kingdom for the third time. But this time, she has plans to take a step further with a short European tour with shows in Germany and The Netherlands. She will bring another pop musician from Japan with her, namely Mariko Takei. For her, it will be the first time to tour in Europe. This European tour will be organised by Orion Live UK.
2& (DOUBLE AND) is Saki Chitose, a solo musician who has been active as a musician for several years, solo and in a pop group. After the disbandment of this alt idol group called Guso Drop in 2017, she concentrated to publish new music as 2& (DOUBLE AND). She released her debut album in 2015 and has released several singles since as well as two long-form compilations in the United Kingdom: The Theory of 2& and Saki PLUS YOU = 2&. 2& (DOUBLE AND) has gone on to appear at many conventions in Asia, toured the UK with Necronomidol and The Screaming Sixties on the 2018 Black Winds Over Albion tour, and headlined the Indie, Idol and Infamous tour in 2019.
Mariko Takei is an electro-pop singer who writes her own lyrics and occasionally music, worked together with several composers, such as Yunomi, Her Ghost Friend, masayuki hasuo (School Food Punishment, siraph, LAGITAGIDA) and many more. She dreamed of performing abroad and will get this chance in July where she will be able to show her performances with a combination of singing and dancing.
The Dutch date will be organised by AVO Magazine.
