Morning Musume '14 to play in NYC this Sunday


Long tradition with new branding

Morning Musume changed their name this year into Morning Musume '14. I'm not 100% sure what that really means for the flagship idol group of Hello! Project, but they're having a concert in NYC's Best Buy Theater on Sunday, October 5th. You can get tickets here and partake their first live in New York. We'll be there to take a look.

Despite the most recent graduation announcement, Morning Musume '14 comes into their Autumn tour with a lot of momentum, featuring several chart-topping singles this year. It should be interesting to see how one of the most venerable modern idol groups of Japan hold up in 2014 and in front of a very different crowd that typifies NYC. In the recent years, Morning Musume '14 has been slowly trying to adopt and grow as a group outside of Japan, so maybe the new branding helps to make the distinction between their new songs and old songs, as well as new and old members.

As usual, the live will feature all kinds of exclusive goods, and there will be a handshake event afterwards for those who purchased the commemorative CD for this live. Hopefully between all of this we can sneak in a few photos of Morning Musume '14 for you all.
