On April 8, Takahashi Minami celebrated her 26th birthday with a birthday live called "Minami Takahashi 26th Birthday Live 2017 ? 199104080127? 26? " at Shibuya CLUB QUATTRO.
The live was held exclusively for members of "Cheeky eyes". Takahashi performed 14 songs mainly focusing on tracks off of her first solo album "Aishite mo Ii desu ka?" released last year.
Minegishi Minami served as MC for the event, and together, they reflected on Takahashi's past year of activities. Afterwards, Kojima Haruna, who will be graduating from AKB48 on April 19, made a surprise appearance on stage. Fans were overjoyed at the reunion of No Sleeves (AKB48 sub-unit comprised of Kojima, Minegishi, and Takahashi), which brought tears of happiness to Takahashi's eyes. The three performed No Sleeves' popular song "Heartgata Virus". Takahashi commented, "I don't remember the last time the three of us sang together..."
During the encore, Takahashi announced, "This is why I chose to go solo! Finally, finally!! I will be holding a nationwide tour!" She is scheduled to hold 15 concerts starting on July 15 at Sapporo PENNY LANE24.
