Japanese idol girl group NMB48 is set to make their debut in Bangkok, Thailand during their first ever Asia tour.

Dubbed as “NMB48 Asia Tour 2017”, the group will be making stops in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and Thailand seems to the only Southeast Asian country announced for the tour.

The second sister group of the famous AKB48, NMB48 simply stand for “Namba”, which is the southern district of Osaka, Japan.

Debuted in 2011, NMB48 has had over 90 members across five generations, and currently consists of three teams; Team N, Team M, and Team BII.

Like AKB48, the group’s concept is “The Idol You Can Meet”, so the members perform on rotation and simultaneously at several events.


The Bangkok concert will take place at Muang Thai GMM Live House on 14 August 2017.

The all-standing ticket is at THB2,500  and can be purchased via thaiticketmajor.com.

After Thailand, the group will head to Hong Kong on 29 September and Taiwan on 1 October.
