Japanese rock band Radwimps is set to visit Singapore as part of its 2017 Asia Live Tour.

The band, which recently garnered attention through its eighth album Your Name, which also serves as the soundtrack of award-winning anime movie Kimi no Na Wa (Your Name), is slated to perform at the Megabox Event Hall @ Big Box in Singapore on June 4.

In an official statement, promoter SOZO entertainment said that only three members of the group, namely vocalist/guitarist/pianist Yojiro Noda, guitarist Akira Kuwahara and bassist Yusuke Takada, would perform in the country as drummer Satoshi Yamaguchi has currently suspended all activities as a result of focal dystonia illness.

The band's previous concert in Singapore was in 2014.

Prior to the Asia Live Tour, the band held 21 performances in 12 cities across Japan, including a finale show in Nippon Budokan, one of Tokyo's largest concert venues, on May 9 and 10.

Radwimps' latest album, Ningen Kaika (Human Bloom), was released in 2016, 

Tickets for its Singapore show is available from S$98 (US$69.6). (kes)
