“My show will be a unique live experience where everyone will discover my real life, my world, my secrets and all that’s important to me. It will be the perfect show for all children and families but not forgetting my fans of all ages,” Hello Kitty said a few days before the show started its local run.
“It’s the story about beginning my journey when I was full of ambition for my future. However, I find that before I can achieve my dreams, I am faced with a great challenge,” the popular feline added.
Joining Hello Kitty on the show are her best friend My Melody, boyfriend Dear Daniel, Bad Badtz Maru, Pom Pom Purin, and twin sister Mimmy.
“Because it’s also about friendship,” Hello Kitty related.
MC Sophie helps bring Hello Kitty’s story to life.
“Kitty is loving Manila! She’s ready to meet you and can’t wait to see all the kids. There will be lots of dancing. Later on, we might go shopping, as well,” Sophie said.
The show is interactive with audiences allowed to join Hello Kitty and her friends as they dance to current pop hits including songs by Charli XCX, Bruno Mars, Kylie Minogue, Echosmith, Clean Bandit, Flo Rida, and many others.
Hello Kitty’s costumes for the show are specially designed by lifestyle brand Tokidoki.
The show is a big visual spectacle with a giant LED wall, high tech art and sound, and flying props.
“I thought it was the right time to share my real life with my friends. The public has the right to know more, to discover my everyday life, to see who my true friends are, the places where I hang out, and in particular, the values that I hold,” Hello Kitty said.
