Keyakizaka46's most popular member Yurina Hirate will be unable to attend the group's 2nd anniversary live event.
In a statement released on the group's website, Hirate will have a schedule conflict during the group's 2nd anniversary live event making her unavailable to attend.
Fans of Hirate were disappointed by the news, especially due to her absence from other events this year. On January 13, the idol announced that she would go on a one-month hiatus to recover from an arm injury, leaving her unable to perform at the group's first Nippon Budokan concerts on January 31 and February 1.
On March 7, Keyakizaka46 released its 6th single "Glass wo Ware!". Hirate was absent from the group's promotional performances of the single on NHK's "Shibuya Note" (March 4) and TV Asahi's "Music Station" (March 9).
