2012Edit

On June 5, it was announced that Morning Musume 6th generation member Tanaka Reina would start a band alongside her idol group activities. The Tanaka Reina to Band Yaritai Joshi Member Daiboshuu audition would begin on June 16, targeting female vocalists and guitarists around 15 through 22 years of age.[1][2]

On November 18, it was announced that Uozumi Yuki, Okada Marina, and Miyazawa Marin were the audition winners, and Tanaka would graduate from Morning Musume at the end of their 2013 spring tour to focus on the band instead of doing both as was originally planned. It was also revealed that the band was allowing fans to submit a name for the band, from which the members would choose a name they liked.[3]

2013Edit

On February 3, two months since the submissions, the band was revealed to be named "LoVendoЯ" when their official website was opened. Their first live tour was also announced.[4]

The band performed live for the first time on March 2 at MUSIC FESTA Vol.0.

On March 15, the official LoVendoЯ blog was opened, with the members' first posts appearing on March 16.[5] Also on March 15, the Morning Musume Concert Tour 2013 Haru Michishige☆Eleven SOUL ~Tanaka Reina Sotsugyou Kinen Special~ began, in which LoVendoЯ was the regular opening act.[6]

On March 24, they started their first live tour LoVendoЯ First Live Tour 2013 Haru ~Lavender~. The tour dates where during the weekdays due to their activities in the Morning Musume tour.

Beginning in June, LoVendoЯ joined M-line club.

On June 6, it was announced that LoVendoЯ's first tour would be extended with a slightly different twist. The extended tour, known as LoVendoЯ First Live Tour 2013 Ver.2, had a different setlist and overall experience. The tour took place from July 11 through August 30.

On July 4, it was announced that LoVendoЯ would perform at the 2013 J-Pop Summit Festival in San Francisco, California.[7] On July 27, LoVendoЯ performed a solo concert at the Pagoda Stage in Japantown.

On July 6, they started broadcasting their first radio show titled LoVendoЯ no Love On! on RKB Radio every Saturday and KRY Radio every following Monday.[8]

On October 1, they were transferred to UP-FRONT CREATE. The same day, they began a second radio show on TBS Radio, a mini corner titled LoVendoЯ no LV-Я.[9]

On November 23, it was announced that band members Okada Marina, Uozumi Yuki, and Miyazawa Marin would form the collaborative unit Love Bitter EX with the duo Bitter & Sweet.[11] Tanaka Reina was the only member of LoVendoЯ who did not join the unit because on the same day it was announced that she was cast in lead role of the musical Fushigi Yuugi ~Shu no Shou~ in April 2016,[12] and Love Bitter EX would hold their only spring live tour at the time Tanaka would be busy rehearsing.

On December 14, it was announced LovendoЯ won the TBS 48th Nihon Yusen Taishou (Japan Cable Awards) new artist award.

TriviaEdit

  • During the audition, the original candidates who auditioned for vocalist did not have the image or the vocal ability to be capable of performing alongside Tanaka Reina. Thus, the staff decided to start audition all over again just for the vocalists. Okada Marina was selected from the second audition.
