"Anime Festival Asia 2014 (AFA 2014)", which was held at Singapore’s Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, is Southeast Asia’s largest J-POP culture festival. FLOW, LiSA, and GARNiDELiA performed along with Eir Aoi, who performed in 2013 as well.
The show started with opening music and “SAMBICA” kicked it off. The venue heated up, and with Aoi’s words “Kill La Kill opening theme, Sirius”, the place erupted with energy. She went straight into a hard rock performance of “Gladius”, the song coupled with “TSUNAGARU OMOI”. She followed with the memorable guitar riff of “KASUMI” and a new tune “TSUNAGARU OMOI”. It was an energy that could only be created with a live band arrangement. She spoke to the crowd in English while playing her hit songs “INNOCENCE” and, lastly, her huge hit “IGNITE”. The audience sang along as the show ended on a high note.
It’s been a year since Aoi’s last Singapore show, but her popularity has increased since then. She vowed to the crowd, “I definitely want to come back for a ‘one-man’ show”.
Eir Aoi is set to do the ending theme for TV anime, “Aldnoah Zero Vol.2”, which starts in January 2015. She will also release her new song “GENESIS” on February 18, 2015.
