Grammy Award winner David Foster had the first Japanese concert in sixteen years. About 10,000 people went to the Tokyo International Forum on 2010/10/19 and 10/20.

The style of the event was such that Foster would play piano for various vocalists, including Peter Cetera, Natalie Cole, and surprise guest singers. The 10/19 show had MISIA as the guest, and Seiko sang on 10/20.

In 1983, “Sweet Memories”, which was originally the B side of “Garasu no Ringo”, gained a huge popularity through a television ad for Suntory can beer, which featured an anime clip with the famous penguin characters. Because of that both songs officially became the A side. It is one of Seiko’s most popular songs to this day.

On October 23rd, Suntory will release a new version of the ad for the coffee “BOSS” with Seiko herself and the penguins.
