Japan Night launches in New York City on May 12th, featuring four prominent Japanese music artists at two venues just blocks apart. The one-night only special event will be presented by Japan 2019 in collaboration with Japan Day @ Central Park, created by the Japanese community of New York to foster a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and build bridges between Japan and the U.S.
HYDE and Wagakki Band will perform at the PlayStation Theater, with a 6:00 pm showtime, and MISIA with special guest Puffy AmiYumi will hit the Sony Hall stage at 8:00 pm. Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
Hiroyasu Ando, President of The Japan Foundation, the organizer of Japan 2019 said, “In Japan 2019, we are introducing a wide variety of Japanese culture. In particular, Japan Night presents live music performances of top-level artists that are highly respected and vastly popular in Japan. We hope to offer a taste of contemporary Japan to New Yorkers who are accustomed to such quality arts in their daily lives.”
