The Japanese idol group Wasuta ("The World Standard") gave their 5th anniversary concert on March 28, 2020 and broadcast the event to a worldwide audience from LINE CLUB SHIBUYA.
The live event titled "Wasuta 5 sai ni narimashita!" ("Wasuta turned 5 years old!") Was performed in an empty place with colorful balloons on the seats, where the fans would have cheered on the group at the sold-out celebration.
Due to the effects of COVID-19, Wasuta announced the cancellation of the live audience and switched to a worldwide livestream broadcast on the Avex platform "mu-mo LIVE".
Wasuta played her complete set as planned with several costume changes, special videos and background music from the NEKONOTE BAND.
Wasuta sang hits from her recently released Wasuta BEST album, such as the anime themes "Saijoukyuu Paradox" (Idol Time PriPara) and "Kira Kira Hologram" (Kiratto Pri ☆ chan). The idol group also played a medley of their popular video game themed "Uru Choco Trilogy" and delivered the first live performance of "Ima wa Mukashi" from the self-titled first album.
The fans cheered Wasuta in real time on Twitter, and the members took out their smartphones during the MC to read comments to the cameras and expressed their emotional thanks for the huge amount of support.
Leader Nanase Hirokawa concluded the main performance with the words: “So many things have changed in the past five years, but together with the same five members we celebrated our 5th anniversary. I hope that all of you will continue to support us in our sixth year! "
Wasuta's first "best" album, Wasuta BEST – including the new song "Grapefruit Moon" – is now streamed worldwide.
