Amatsuki(天月-あまつき-), a Japanese vocalist that emerged from the internet and now enjoys great popularity, will make his first UK performance at MCM London Comic Con on 27-29 May 2016.
Amatsuki has achieved over 35 million views on NicoNico Douga, a Japanese video-sharing service much like YouTube, with his covers of Vocaloid, anime and video game songs in addition to his original songs. He originally posted videos of himself singing along without thinking seriously about being a professional singer, yet he soon gathered a devoted following due to his powerful voice and charming and friendly character.
Amatsuki made the jump from internet stardom to mainstream success with his debut album Hello World, which reached number four in Japan’s national chart. His popularity has also reached further afield than just Japan, with one of his cover songs achieving a million hits after being uploaded by western fans on YouTube.
Amatsuki will attend all three days of MCM London Comic Con, taking place at ExCeL Centre, where he will perform live, participate in Q&A sessions and sign autographs for fans.
