'Girl's Bomb!!' will represent Japan in a live idol concert event in Taiwan for their very first overseas performance!
- It has been decided that the very first overseas performance for 'Girl's Bomb!!' will be held over two days, between February 4th ~ 5th 2017, at a popular live idol concert event in Taiwan (Hana Stage). The event is mainly held in cities across the country.
The overseas debut for Girl's Bomb!! is finally upon us – just as Limelight Co. Ltd (who manages Girl's Bomb!!) and AATJ Ltd. (who manages 'Tokyo Crazy Kawaii', the event that sends Japanese culture abroad) promised last summer.
The place that was decided upon for their first performance to introduce Japanese idol culture abroad was Taiwan. The chosen nine popular idol groups are actively expanding their stage both domestically and overseas, and are acting as a kind of cultural exchange between Japan and Taiwan.
Up Up Girls (Provisional), Ciao Bella Cinquetti, FES☆TIVE, Wonder-weed, READY TO KISS, Magical Ban☆Bang, Tokyo CuteCute, Candy☆Drops, Gallop+, etc.
As well as this, a performance by the 'Weather Girls' (天氣女孩), representing Taiwan, will be held on February 4th! They have been talked about ever since their performance which involved dancing while telling the weather forecast during their debut single in Japan in October 2012, 'Koi no Tenki Yoho' (Love Weather Forecast). They are still actively involved in various activities. The 'Weather Girls' also performed in Japan with 'Girl's Bomb!!' – and now 'Girl's Bomb!!' are landing in their country as a special guest!

'Girl's Bomb!!' will also take part in the 'Fifth Taiwanese International Comics & Animation Festival', being held in Taipei, Taiwan, between February 2nd ~ 6th, 2017.
