J-Pop Star Beckii Cruel to Perform New Single at London Comic ConSep 15th 2011
28-30 OCTOBER – EXCEL LONDON – ROYAL VICTORIA DOCK
Teen sensation Beckii Cruel will be performing her new single ‘You Can't Kiss Me’ at next month's MCM Expo London Comic Con, organisers have announced. The Isle of Man schoolgirl, who shot to superstar status in Japan after the nation fell in love with YouTube videos of her dancing to anime songs, will be appearing on-stage on both Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October.
Beckii was brought to a mainstream UK audience last year, when the story of her incredible rise to fame was told in a BBC Three documentary, Beckii: Schoolgirl Superstar. So far, Beckii's YouTube channel has received nearly 19 million views, and she has also released music CDs, DVDs and even two best-selling English language learning books for her Japanese fans.
As well as singing ‘You Can't Kiss Me’ – released on 24 October – Beckii will be performing a medley of her YouTube dances and getting the crowd on stage to dance along to the popular Japanese Internet meme Danjo. Beckii was a huge hit with London Comic Con visitors when she came along in May, and we're delighted to welcome her back for the October show.
