Perfume announced the schedule for its fourth and largest world tour next spring, promoting its latest album, FUTURE POP. The J-pop vocal and dance group will kick off its first world tour in two years in Taiwan and hit a total of nine cities in Asia and North America from March to April 2019.

FUTURE POP, released in August, hit No. 1 on electronic music charts in 20 countries, and the tour will mainly feature songs from the 12-track set, along with past hits.

After starting the world tour March 2 in Taipei, the trio will fly to North America for seven engagements, including shows in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, where they've performed before, plus first-time visits to Seattle, Dallas, Toronto, and San Jose, Calif. A first-ever show in Shanghai is also in the works, details of which will be announced later.

Perfume also renewed its global site to coincide with the tour announcement. The site introduces the group's works to date, including live performances and music videos that "redefine the relationship between technology and body, spectator and performer."
