World-renowned “Samurai Guitarist” MIYAVI announced he will return to North America on a tour spanning 19 cities and two countries. The whirlwind tour kicks off in Calgary on September 30 and ends in Atlanta on Halloween Night, at a venue fittingly called “Masquerade”. Tickets go on sale on June 11 at 10:00 (MDT) and will be available through MIYAVI’s official site.
In addition to General Admission, VIP package tickets will be available. The VIP package includes early entry to the venue, a chance to meet MIYAVI himself and snap a photo with him, and a collectible gift!

The tour is MIYAVI’s first in North America since 2019 and will feature performances off last year’s album Holy Nights. It will be a homecoming for the musician, who resides part-time in Los Angeles and Tokyo but has been stationed in Japan since the pandemic.
The artist shared his thoughts in this touching message on Twitter:
Finally. Been needing LIVE MUSIC. To feel alive. I know the situation keeps changing and we can not see the future 100% clear yet, but I believe that it’s worth it to at least try making a path. Simply, can’t wait. To feel you, to feel alive. See you in your city. Love. M
The message is relatable since we have all been itching for a sense of normalcy. To many of us, live concerts seem like a far-off memory. We’re excited to feel “alive” again with MIYAVI!
Update 2021-07-13: An additional show was added for October 19, at Cobra Lounge in Chicago.
