Directed by Joji himself, The Extravaganza will feature first-ever live performances of songs from Nectar and never-before-seen hijinks. When asked what fans may anticipate from the evening, Joji says, “it’s grrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!”
One ticket will grant fans access to the October 23 7pm PDT (Americas) premiere as well as two re-showings on October 24 at 7pm WIB (Asia & Australia) and 7pm CEST (Europe & Africa). These will be the only viewings of The Extravaganza.

The announcement of The Extravaganza comes on the heels of Joji’s second LP Nectar, released on September 25 via 88rising and distributed by 12ToneMusic. The follow-up to his RIAA-certified Gold debut record BALLADS 1, Nectar has been praised “a work of art and euphoria” (Ones To Watch). With assists from acknowledged icons and new trailblazers alike, including Diplo, Lil Yachty, Omar Apollo,BENEE, and Yves Tumor, Joji’s latest musical masterpiece earned him his highest-ever debut on the Billboard Hot 100, with ‘Run‘ and landed him a national television debut on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Joji, the “first music superstar of his kind” (Office), executive produced and arranged the entire 18-track collection that “far exceeds anything else we’ve heard thus far” (Nylon) and “lives up to the hype” (Billboard).
Joji’s flair for visuals has been on full display since Nectar’s release, as he dropped videos for ‘Tick Tock‘ and ‘Upgrade‘ over the weekend. In ‘Tick Tock‘ he turns the camera on the absurd and illusory quality of daily life, roaming – and eating – his way through a modern cityscape as if in a pristine dream. ‘Upgrade‘ counters with grainy, VHS-like footage and showcases Joji’s signature sense of humor through dancing flight attendants, turbulence, and weightlessness. Both videos feature doughnuts.
Joji is one of the most enthralling artists of the digital age and among the world’s top independent artists with over 5 billion streams to date. The Japan-born singer, producer, and auteur has a total vision for his work, not just in the writing and producing of his music, but across artwork, videos, and live performances as well. It’s a fully realised world that his fans can inhabit and explore—and see themselves in. “My music is not biographical,” he says, but even still, the deep, heavily shaded emotions in his songs are genuine and they speak to anyone who has ever felt stuck on the outside looking in, who knows what it means to not belong. In 2019, Joji sold-out his North America tour within minutes and performed at some of the most coveted festivals across the world, including Reading & Leeds in the UK and Lollapalooza.
