Ayumi Hamasaki Announces 20th Anniversary Tour: See the First Batch of Dates
Hamasaki's official 20 year mark working with Avex, Japan's leading record and distribution label, is April 8, 2018—exactly two decades following the release of her 1998 breakout single, "Poker Face."
Over the course of her career as one of Japan and East Asia's most iconic pop stars and performers, Hamasaki has released a total of seventeen studio records and countless EPs, promotional singles and remix albums.
Following her 2016 Made in Japan Arena Tour, the pop idol will embark on a 60-date tour spanning all of Japan and, hopefully, some international dates as well.
