May’n ASIA TOUR 2017 「OVER∞EASY」in Taipei

 

The May’n ASIA TOUR 2017 「OVER∞EASY」in Taipei took place during a break in what had been a stretch of rainy days, at the Taipei Legacy Hall located within the Huashan 1914 Creative Park, a popular hangout for the locals.

It was attended by an estimated 2000 attendees in the 2 shows, one on Saturday’s evening and another on the afternoon of Sunday. The Canon Photo Party likewise attracted quite a following, reaching full subscription with over a hundred entries from eager fans and photography enthusiasts.

On the event days, participants had the opportunity to loan popular camera models such as the EOS M10 and EOS 80D and use them to take photos during the concert. This opportunity to “test run” key models has been always very popular among Canon Photo Party participants, and this time was no exception.

On the both nights, fans were treated to a whole setlist that included May’n classics, covers of Chinese songs and her recent releases. There were a total of 20 songs including the encores, making the concert a 2 hour long extravaganza. May’n dedicated her cover of the 1994 classic, “Itoshisa to Setsunasa to Kokoro Tsuyosa to” to the Canon Photo Party participants, allowing them to freely take photos of her during the action-packed song.
