Default May 27, 2018 Announcement

May 27, 2018 is the final performance of Shiina Ringo's current live tour - and it's also the exact day of the 20th anniversary of her debut. She is widely expected to make an announcement of some kind. What do you think it will be?

I can't see her retiring. It's probably the long awaited...


Phaze Fr33


Or a tacky 'supergroup' featuring Tortoise Matsumoto and her kids!




She's got nowt worth selling for a 20th so it's that, retirement or a new album (of old tracks).

She was rumored to have said it once to someone in the industry as far as I know...I don't know that she's actually said it publicly.

But yeah, I think that's the most likely thing. I like Bongo's optimism though!

I want a new band, but find a retirement announcement more likely. Would be kind of ironic if a Utada tribute album featuring Ringo was followed by the end of Utada's hiatus, while a Ringo tribute album featuring Utada signaled Ringo's retirement. Quite fitting, actually.

That wasn't great, but I am sure she's just having a bad day. She's had a couple of those and seems to bounce back every time.

It is toward the end of a fairly long, densely packed tour too. She's got to be feeling some fatigue.
