Perfume Brings Tech-Heavy Yet Intimate Show to NYC to Close Cosmic Explorer Tour

On paper, going to a Perfume concert seems like a tall order. The Japanese trio is famous in Asia for their turbo-powered, Auto-Tuned, kawaii-techno-pop bangers that never ease up on the tempo. Combine that with two-plus hours laser lights and holograms and it might mean sensory overload for an audience. But Labor Day Weekend marked the girl group's return to New York as the final stop in the U.S. leg of their 2016 Cosmic Explorer Tour. As the packed Hammerstein Ballroom performance proved, the pop stars can deliver a varied, multifaceted show and, in the end, even appear totally human.
