Japanese vocalist and online sensation Amatsuki will be giving his first ever UK performance at this May’s MCM London Comic Con. Attending all three days of the Excel show, the J-pop star will also be signing autographs and taking part in an on-stage Q&A.
Garnering over 35 million views on Japanese video-sharing site NicoNico Douga with his covers of Vocaloid, anime and video game songs as well as original work, Amatsuki soon gathered a devoted following thanks to his powerful voice and friendly personality.
Amatsuki made the jump from internet stardom to mainstream success with his debut album Hello World, which reached number four in Japan’s national chart. His popularity has also reached further afield, with one of his cover songs achieving a million hits after being uploaded by western fans on YouTube.
