ANGERME finally gets off the ground with an upcoming trip to the City of Lights! The second-most senior group in Hello! Project make their overseas debut on June 3, 2018 at La Cigale in Paris, France. The group led by Wada Ayaka made their announcement at the January 28, 2018 during the Hello! Project 20th Anniversary!! Hello! Project 2018 WINTER ~FULL SCORE~ day concert.
The members of ANGERME long expressed their interest in performing overseas; sub-leader Nakanishi Kana and member Takeuchi Akari even went so far as to even mention their passports in an interview last year. Paris is actually the perfect place for the group to begin their international campaign: let’s not forget that Nakanishi Kana named the group as a portmanteau of the French words for angel (ange) and tear (larme). With their performance, ANGERME join Morning Musume, Berryz Koubou, °C-ute, Buono, and Juice=Juice on the list of Hello! Project acts who have performed in Paris.
ANGERME (アンジュルム) started as S/mileage (スマイレージ) in 2009. Comprised of Wada Ayaka, Maeda Yuuka, Fukuda Kanon, and Ogawa Saki, the group made its major debut in 2010 and went on to win the Japan Record Awards 2010 “Best New Artist” award. In late 2014, the group changed its name to ANGERME to signify a change in the group’s image. The current lineup consists of leader Wada Ayaka, sub-leaders Nakanishi Kana and Takeuchi Akari, Katsuta Rina, Murota Mizuki, Sasaki Rikako, Kamikokuryo Moe, Kasahara Momona, Funaki Musubu, and Kawamura Ayano.
