LiSA announces Japan tour starting September, 2023 – Check out full dates here

The massively popular Japanese singer LiSA has just announced a Japan tour that will kick off in September, 2023,

Her new tour is to be called  ‘LiVE is Smile Always~LANDER~‘, with the first concert being held on September 30th in Chiba at Mori no Hall 21.

It will end on December 17th at the Tokyo Garden Theater.

The tour is to promote her latest album Lander, which was released in November, 2022.

LiSA’s popularity skyrocketed with Demon Slayer theme songs

Although always very popular due to many of her songs being used for anime themes, LiSA (real name  Risa Oribe) has seen her popularity worldwide skyrocket in the last couple of years after she was chosen to record ‘Gurenge‘, the first opening theme song for the enormous hit anime Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

She followed that success up with ‘Homura‘, the theme song for the movie Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba — Mugen Train, the first opening theme song for the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Train Arc series ‘– Akeboshi‘–, and the anime’s ending theme song ‘Shirogane‘.

LiSA’s Lander album also hit #3 on the Oricon Albums chart in Japan late last year, selling almost 27,000 units, which likely means LiSA’s Japan tour will be a sellout.
