Prior to the concert, BoA will tour five Japanese cities and regions: Kanagawa Prefecture, Fukuoka, Saitama, Nagoya and Osaka.
Having made her debut in 2000 at the age of 13, BoA is one of the best-known and most influential figures in the K-pop scene. She is among the first Korean artists to gain popularity in both Korea and Japan, a trailblazer among Hallyu stars.
