Los Angeles, CA – FAKE STAR presents MIYAVI at Anime Weekend Atlanta! The samurai guitarist shows no signs of stopping any time this year, having already collaborated with 88rising and Yohji Yamamoto and performing on his world tour “DAY 2” since March.  Those who miss the U.S. leg this month will have another chance to experience the energy of his live concerts in September. This will be MIYAVI’s first convention attendance in almost 10 years. He will participate in autograph sessions, a panel, and perform live on the main events stage.

 

Anime Weekend Atlanta (AWA) is the largest anime convention on the East Coast and is held annually at the Cobb Galleria and Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. AWA will be held September 20-23, 2018.

 

MIYAVI has gained recognition around the world for his unique finger-slapping guitar style and diverse music. Four years into his solo career, he joined the J-rock supergroup S.K.I.N. with GACKT, SUGIZO (LUNA SEA, X JAPAN), and YOSHIKI (X JAPAN). In 2013, MIYAVI reached a pivotal point in his career with his self-titled album “MIYAVI”, charting #8 on the Oricon and Billboard Japan. During this time, he became an UNHCR ambassador to further spread his message of peace through music.

 

Since then, MIYAVI has collaborated with other creators and artists, the most notable being Angelina Jolie and Yohji Yamamoto. Jolie handpicked MIYAVI to act in the 2014 film Unbroken, where he had his Hollywood debut as “The Bird”. This past January, he walked the runway for Yamamoto in Paris. His latest album “Samurai Sessions Vol.2” features famous Japanese artists, such as Hyde (L’Arc-en-Ciel, VAMPS), masato (coldrain), KenKen, SKY-HI, Daichi Miura, and VERBAL, among others. In April, he collaborated with SCANDAL to celebrate Fender’s “Made in Japan” pride.

 

MIYAVI’s acting career continues with two feature anime live-action films this year: Bleach (as Byakuya Kikuchi) and Gangoose (as Tomoya Adachi). While in the middle of a world tour to promote his new album, MIYAVI continues to release new singles each month with no signs of stopping.

 

Consistently aiming for the next level, fans refer to MIYAVI as the “Samurai Guitarist.”
