DREAMS COME TRUE (Dorikamu=ドリカム) is one of a kind. A unique blend of American pop influence and Japanese sensibility make them different from any other J-Pop group.
Since their debut of 1988, the dynamic duo, Bassist Masato Nakamura, and singer Miwa Yoshida sold more than 50 million records worldwide. Their delightfully pop songs with clever lyrics captured the audience hearts. Dorikamu has become a cultural phenomenon throughout the 90’s and 00’s.
This fall, for the first time in nine years since their last appearance in the USA, DREAMS COME TRUE will come to America to perform “THE NIGHT WITH DREAMS COME TRUE in the USA”, their special set pulled from the “DREAMS COME TRUE WONDERLAND 2011” series.
In the last 5 months, Japan has experienced this unprecedented tragedy. Masato and Miwa have been busy raising money for the devastated area. They just released the new charity best album “ Soul for the People”, from which all the artist royalty will be donated to the Red Cross. Check out www.dctgarden.com/THE_SOUL_FOR_THE_PEOPLE/
Above all, they are so grateful for all the Americans effort to support Japan. One of their wishes is to show their gratitude by playing music from the bottom of their hearts.
“DREAMS COME TRUE WONDERLAND 2011, THE NIGHT WITH DREAMS COME TRUE in the USA supplied by POCARI SWEAT” will tour three major North American cities. The American tour starts in LA on Saturday, October 1st, followed by a show in Seattle on Wednesday, October 5th, and finally ending with two shows on Sunday, October 9th, and Monday October 10th in New York City.
Along with the WONDERLAND tour, DREAMS COME TRUE has been offering a special concert series called “THE NIGHT WITH DREAMS COME TRUE”, in which fans can enjoy the music in a more intimate setting. This special show will be performed in Okinawa. Immediately following this performance, the band will travel to America to perform “THE NIGHT WITH DREAMS COME TRUE” in Los Angeles, Seattle and New York.
In 2000, DREAMS COME TRUE performed the WONDERLAND tour in Taiwan; however, this will be their first time taking the special “THE NIGHT WITH DREAMS COME TRUE” show abroad. In 2002, they toured internationally with the “2002: monkey girl odyssey us-mix”, “2002: monkey girl odyssey west coast-mix” shows. These shows were performed completely in English. On the upcoming US tour, the vocalist, Miwa Yoshida, will perform all of the songs in Japanese providing a unique opportunity for both Japanese and non-Japanese fans living in America to enjoy the songs in Japanese.
This is a big year for the WONDERLAND tour and an exciting challenge for DREAMS COME TRUE.
Yoshida and Nakamura are eagerly anticipating the American Tour and the ways this experience will offer DREAMS COME TRUE another opportunity to evolve.
