Meet LiSA, Take a Photo and Win Concert Tickets in Singapore this July!

Japanese pop-rock singer LiSA will be holding her first solo concert in Singapore on July 18th! We visited the flagship Sony Store at 313@Somerset, where you can take a photo with her when she comes down.

LiSA is back for another promotional tie-up with Sony Singapore

Well-known for singing the theme songs to anime Sword Art Online and its sequel (crossing field, No More Time Machine, Shirushi), Risa Oribe, better known by her stage name, LiSA, has performed here for four years consecutively, at Anime Festival Asia's I Love Anisong concert annually since 2011.

Sword Art Online was one of the first animes which I had watched so listening to "crossing field" brings back many memories.

Sony Singapore is teaming up with LiSA for a promotional campaign once again, with the theme this time being "LiSA in Sony Store Always!". From 29th June to 19 July, there will be an in-store display dedicated to the Japanese singer, airing a special video message from her. We went down to the Sony Store at 313@Somerset to take a look at the display earlier this Monday.

The special message board for fans to write on, which will be given to LiSA, was not ready yet

There was a small section introducing the singer and an impressive discography listing all her released singles.

Artist Profile and Discography

A number of LiSA merchandise were on display, including a muffler towel and clear file promoting her eighth and latest single, Rally Go Round, the opening theme to Nisekoi:. My personal favourite is the rubber keychain featuring a wacky side of LiSA.

There were also television displays airing recorded concert footage and a special video message from the singer (you'll have to be there to find out for yourself). The Sony ActionCam, a GoPro competitor and the Music Video Recorder used to record concert footage at AFA were also exhibited.

The actual costume worn by LiSA at her Live is Smile Always ~PiNK&BLACK~ concert in the prestigious Tokyo Budokan was on display. There were also photos of her special performance.

Many images of multi-flavoured donuts embellishing the shirt there.

What is this. The corner was not ready yet when we went. I am guessing LiSA's songs will be blasted at full volume there, judging from the huge speakers.


In addition, you may listen to three high-resolution tracks recorded live at LiSA's Budokan concert at the Sony High-Res Audio listening booth from 5pm to 6pm daily. However, prior registration is required. Fill in a short form here.

Listen to recorded "live" versions of traumerei, Rising Hope and crossing field

Fans or LiSAkkos will be able to get her autograph and even take a photo with her by purchasing selected Sony products. The Meet & Greet session will be on Sunday, 19th June, from 10am to 12 noon. Do note that the Meet & Greet passes are serial-numbered and come in limited quantities, while stocks last. More details are in the chart below and the Sony website.

The promotion starts from 4 July, 10am at Sony Store, 313@Somerset.

Take a photo with LiSA using your cameraphone with any purchase of the Sony Xperia Z3+, MDR-Z7, NWZ-ZX1 or NW-ZX2 (from $899 onwards)!

Some of the highlights are:
- Receive a Meet & Greet Pass with a file case autographed by LiSA in front of you, and a LiSA Paper Bag with any qualifying purchase.
- Get your PS4 signed by LiSA on the spot.
- Receive exclusive LiSA Premiums such as a towel, bottle holder and key holder (this is the one I was talking about!) by buying selected items.
- Get high-resolution live tracks of Rising Hope, traumerei and crossing field with a purchase of selected Sony audio products.

Sony Singapore and LiSA had previously collaborated on another promotion during the period when Anime Festival Asia was held. 10 lucky fans received an original autographed Polaroid of LiSA and a thumbdrive containing high-resolution versions of her songs when she dropped by the Sony Store last year too.

It seems like we'll be seeing more of such tie-ups with Japanese artistes by Sony Singapore.

An autographed Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works poster by Japanese singer Ayano Mashiro was on display at the Sony Store too. Delighted fans got the opportunity to receive her autograph and take photos with her during a meet-and-greet-session at the Sony booth at the recent CharaExpo.

Ayano Mashiro loves Singapore and wants to return here again someday!

She also signed a small photo card promoting her latest single, Vanilla Sky and a Sony NWZ-A17 walkman.

Her signature is very intricate and beautiful!

Enjoy yourself at the LiSA concert on 18th July! We've gotten our tickets already and it'll be a night to look forward to!
