held a special live concert to commemorate the graduation of founding member Ai Kago
On February 29, the group performed a 4 song set in Tokyo at CLUB QUATRO. The 3 hugged and cried as they performed as unit for the last time.
"Thank you for this final live!
," Kago said.
On February 15, Kago announced that she was graduating from Girls Beat!! to pursue a solo career. During her graduation live, the singer also shared that her age also played a role helping her decide to leave the group.
"I admit that it was somewhat difficult being a 28-year-old [in the idol industry]
," she said.
Although she's no longer part of the group, Kago asked that people continue to support Girls Beat!!, especially as it works towards auditioning people to join it.
Girls Beat!! was formed by Kago in 2014 as her way of returning to the idol music scene. The group quickly went on hiatus when Kago's then husband was arrested
later that year and later resumed activities
the following year in September of 2015 without her.
