I thought I would share how it was to see Kyary Pamyu Pamyu when she did a live concert in London in February earlier this year.
We were one of the lucky 800+ people to get tickets. It was pure luck that we got the tickets, really. I was searching her name on Google to find more about when her up and coming tour would be, because I knew that she was coming to Europe to have two show in Belgium and France, and we had decided we wanted to go and see at least one of them. But by luck, I found out via Google that she was to have a show in London, and I found that out only the day before tickets went on sale. So I got up early to buy the tickets the next day and I got a hold of two. It was only after the tickets went on sale that the KPP Facebook page had made a post about it, and by then it was too late for a lot of people, because even though there were no real adverts for it, they sold out quick. I dont think they were expecting that!
Getting to London
Travelling over from Sweden to London was not a problem, since we have family there. No need for a hotel, plus we got to have a mini holiday in the UK, which was nice.
The day of the show we travelled up to London by train. We decided to have a mini Japan day, so we went around few of the different Japanese shops that we know of that sell all things Japanese. We also had Japanese lunch in china town. After that we spent the rest of the afternoon just looking around some of London’s shops before heading to Islington o2 Academy…
Part 2 coming soon.
