Momoiro Clover Z Idols to Perform at Anime Expo With KISS Rockers
posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese idol group Momoiro Clover Z will perform at Anime Expo in Los Angeles in July. They will hold a live concert on July 2 at the Nokia Theatre, the same venue that hosts the Grammy Awards. The concert will feature as special guests Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, the founding members of the rock band KISS.
Momoiro Clover Z previously sang theme songs for Sailor Moon Crystal, Bodacious Space Pirates, Joshiraku, and Pokémon: Black and White. (When the group had six members instead of five, they sang themes for In Solitude Where We Are Least Alone and Dragon Crisis! under their original name Momoiro Clover.) The idols not only sang the theme song for this year's Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' film, but also recorded the song in English and voiced characters in the film.
Momoiro Clover Z has held other overseas events, including Japan Media Arts Festival in Dortmund, Germany in 2011, and Japan Expo in France in 2012.
