Soon-to-disband idol group adds summer anime concert to its farewell tour
Anime idol group Wake Up, Girls! is preparing to go their separate ways. But before they do, they're holding one last farewell tour -- and summer anison bash ANISAMA is now on their list of appearances.
The three-day event brings together greats from all eras of anime music. This year's event already has appearances lined up from JAM Project, Aqours, Do As Infinity, GARNiDELiA, the casts of Umamusume and Starlight Revue, and Hellshake Yano... just to name a few.
Wake Up, Girls! announced recently that the seven-member group would be disbanding so that each member could focus on her own singing and voice acting career. While fans are understandably sad, they've also been extremely supportive. The group will officially be dissolved as of March 2019.
The group will be appearing on August 24, the first day of the event.
