THIRD UPDATE: Another event added (Yokohama)
Ladybaby’s next single is called “Pinky! Pinky!” and will be released September 27th 2017. There will be free events in stores around Tokyo to celebrate the release. So this will be a chance to hear the songs performed live and meet Rei Kuromiya and Rie Kaneko and get your picture taken with them.
Live Show: You can view the mini live performance of the songs for free by going to the store. But some stores have little space so arrive early.
Meet & Greet with Ladybaby: If you want to meet the girls you need tickets. Buy or reserve the CD single or the limited edition CD+DVD in the target store to get a ticket. Tickets are limited so some stores might sell out early. Reserving in advance is difficult if you don’t know Japanese (you must fill in a form, pay, then collect the single on the day). Securing tickets on the day should be possible in some of the stores but get them early because Ladybaby are popular.
Rewards depend on how many tickets you buy. Watch what other people are doing to see when you should get your reward.
1 ticket: Handshake and a few words with Rei Kuromiya and Rie Kaneko.
2 tickets: One “3-shot” picture. You and the both members of Ladybaby.
3 tickets: One “2-shot” picture with the member of your choice.
You can get multiple rewards by buying more tickets (as many as you like).
IMPORTANT: Bring your own camera or smartphone to take the pictures. Unlike most idol units Ladybaby rarely take chekis (mini polaroid pictures) so you need to give staff your own camera.
