Press Release — Large Scale Live Tour In South America By Super Unit “Jam Project”

Posted on Jul 06 2012

“Jam Project,” a top anisong artist unit consisted of Kageyama Hironobu, Endoh Masaaki, Kitadani Hiroshi, Okui Masami and Fukuyama Yoshiki, is facing a brand new challenge. This super group will participate in a large-scale live tour “JAM Project Latin America Live Tour 2012 Arigato Tomodachi” to be held in 4 countries in South America.

This tour will cover Brazil, one of the locations covered in their 2008 world tour, and 3 new locations—Peru, Argentina and Chile. All of these countries are the furthest away from Japan, yet the team is preparing to perform their best with the full band as they would in their lives in Japan. Although Fukuyama Yoshiki will not be able to participate in this tour due to health conditions, this is the very first time in the anisong scene for a unit to hold such a large scale live tour with full band and equipments and only a few cases of such scale exist in the entire music industry history of Japan. For such reasons, they have been attracting much attention for this grand tour.

Japanese anime and specialized dramas have become popular over the years in major cities of South America. Sao Paulo in particular has been in a close friendship with Japan and many Japanese cultural events are held annually. As the members of Jam Project sang the theme songs for various anime and specialized dramas, this tour was put together to respond to the passion and support of the fans in South America. “Jam Project,” with the average age of 46 within the team, is still one of the top super units of the Japanese anisong scene. Let’s keep a close eye in anticipation for their brand new challenge!
