Perfume talked about their impressions of the live, among being big-named artists and performing to a different audience compared to their usual private live. This was the first time the girls performed at a primetime slot compared to previous years, so many more festival-goers were present in their audience. Since there were many fans of rock music, they hoped to bring a performance that matched the other high-energy bands with their own feminine touch.

This led to the discussion of their upcoming Asia tour in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, and Singapore. When asking about any preparations for the performances, A~chan was grateful for the opportunity to perform abroad, as well as recognizing that there may be many people that have yet to hear about Perfume’s music. She hoped that with their tour new fans Asia can realize that Japan has music like Perfume to enjoy. Kashiyuka mentioned that she was very happy to meet their Korean fans at last year’s Asia Song FestivalA~chan reminisced, although they did their greeting in Korean, the audience still greeted them warmly when they reiterated in Japanese.

More images from the event can be viewed on the official Rockin’ On site report.
