Okinawan-born singer Namie Amuro celebrated the 25th anniversary of her debut performance with back-to-back performances dubbed “Namie Amuro 25th Anniversary Live in Okinawa” on September 16 and 17 at Ginowan Seaside Park in Ginowan.

 

Over the two days combined, as many as 52,000 fans flocked to the standalone concert in Okinawa to lose themselves in Amuro’s crystal clear singing voice and dancing.

 

Amuro sang a total of 27 songs, including her Super Monkey’s-era debut “Mister U.S.A.,” the chart-topping “Don’t wanna cry,” and “NEVER END,” which became the theme song for the Kyushu-Okinawa summit.

 

Tomie Naito (31), originally from Haebaru, who raced back to Okinawa from Osaka to see the show said, “Everytime I see her, her impressive dancing and singing voice is overwhelming.

As a fellow Uchinanchu, I look up to her.”

 

A similar 20th anniversary concert was planned in Okinawa five years ago, but was cancelled due to an encroaching typhoon.

Regarding the chance to have the anniversary concert this time around, Amuro commented, “So many fans came to the venue.

I am grateful that I was able to have the concert on the day of my debut.”
