Japan’s Yuzu Opens New Arena With ‘Eikou No Kakehashi’ Live Stream

J-pop duo Yuzu became the first act to perform onstage at Japanese ticketing and publishing company Pia’s new arena in Yokohama, Pia Arena MM, live streaming their hit “Eikou No Kakehashi” (“Bridge of Glory,” in English) on Friday (July 10).

Pia Arena MM was originally slated to kick off April 25-26 with two concerts by the super duo, but the shows had to be cancelled and the arena’s opening postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic, like most other events and concerts in Japan around that time.

Fast forward a few months, and the pair agreed to perform for a virtual audience, to accommodate the company’s desire that the act open the new Yokohama hall.

While the live music situation in Japan remains grim, Yuujin Kitagawa and Koji Iwasawa performed their uplifting number from 2004 with the hope that the future will bring brighter days.
