Perfume’s 3rd international tour – “Perfume WORLD TOUR 3rd” – is confirmed! Perfume will tour Taiwan, Singapore, Los Angeles (US), London (UK), and New York (US) from October to November, 2014. This tour marks the group’s first time performing shows in the US.

With internationally acclaimed sound and visuals, Perfume toured Asia (4 countries) in 2012 and the EU (3 countries) in 2013. Though it was their first tour in these territories, all shows sold out and the tour ended with great success. With increasing demand from their international fans, for the 3rd international tour, bigger halls were booked. Their latest album LEVEL3 was released on CD in 15 regions outside of Japan and was digitally released around the world. At the time of its release, the album placed in Top 10 on iTunes electronic album chart in 19 regions including the US and Canada, topping the chart in 4 regions.
Perfume’s YouTube channel has been viewed by fans in 194 regions around the world. The United States is the No.1 country outside of Japan to access their music videos on YouTube and their official English Facebook page, proving that the US shows will be highly anticipated by their US fans.
Perfume’s mega hit single “Polyrhythm” was featured on the 2011 Disney/Pixer film Cars 2 by request from the film’s director and crew. To commemorate this dream collaboration with Disney/Pixar, Perfume was invited as a guest to the film’s world premier in Los Angeles. Recently, US Ambassador Caroline Kennedy’s support for Perfume has also attracted attention in Japan and the news of the ambassador family enjoying Perfume’s Tokyo Dome show on Christmas 2013 was widely picked up by the media.
The trio will release a new EP “Cling Cling” in July and a Japanese arena tour in August are also scheduled before the world tour. Also, a DVD release of their European tour “Perfume WORLD TOUR 2nd” concert film is also planned for the fall.
A statement from Perfume members re: Perfume WORLD TOUR 3rd
“Perfume WORLD TOUR 3rd” is confirmed!! We are finally hitting the US soil. When we went to L.A. for the Cars 2 premier and walked down the red carpet, an American fan said, “come to LA for a concert!” which really touched us. This incident, two years ago, was the first time we thought about touring outside of Japan to meet our international fans. This year, we finally get a chance to go to the US, the place where we first came to know that there are people waiting for us outside of Japan. We hope to deliver cool music to the world, for the fans who came to see us at that red carpet as well as to those who doesn’t know us yet. We’re going to show our Japanese spirit so we hope you come see us and support us!
