TRUE COLOURS FESTIVAL (TCF) is a long-running international festival of performing arts that celebrates diversity and inclusion, with the theme of One World, One Family. It will be taking place in November this year in Tokyo after being postponed twice including the initially intended stage during the Tokyo Olympic games due to the pandemic.
TCF THE CONCERT 2022 will feature a powerhouse line-up of artists, with more than 90 musicians, singers and dancers from 12 countries and one global megastar – Katy Perry – as its special guest in a concert that will celebrate diversity and the power of music to connect people everywhere.
“What moved me to join True Colors Festival was the spirit and uniqueness of the festival’s message and the opportunity to share the stage with all these diverse artists. I’m excited to be back in Tokyo to perform at this inspiring event”Katy Perry
The two-hour concert showcases over 20 international groups and soloists performing together on a single stage. It is presented in a multi-media format that takes the audience on a journey through music and original film content that reveals the artists as talents and as regular people living their lives. We learn more about the artists, while enjoying a spectacular, visually rich concert that goes from classical to hip-hop and from jazz to upbeat dance numbers.
TCF The Concert 2022 will be held on 19 and 20 November 2022 at the Tokyo Garden Theatre in Tokyo, Japan. Tickets are priced at JPY3000, JPY5000, and JPY8000. Purchase tickets from:
