VENUE: Indigo at The 02

JAPAN NIGHT was initially held in 2014 as the last music event at Kokuritsu Kyogijo (National Olympic Stadium in Tokyo), welcoming leading Japanese artists including L’Arc-en-Ciel with the theme “Move with the music of Japan”. The new show will bring us both fresh and established talent with a strong line-up that will culminate in a performance from the fantastic VAMPS truly not a performance to miss.

“We are proud to be chosen as the promoter of the 1st JAPAN NIGHT in London and we will make sure that this will be a memorable concert for all Japanese music fans in London!” said Rob Hallett, CEO of Robomagic.

Tickets go on sale 9am Friday 10 April and are available from Robomagiclive.com or 0844 856 0202

VAMPS

OKAMOTO’S

A four-piece rock band of junior high school classmates. The band name and the members’ names come from avant-garde artist Taro Okamoto and the legendary punk band Ramones, both of whom they highly respect. In 2014, the band celebrated their 5th debut anniversary with a commemorative album, which was a collaborative project with a spectacular list of artists such as RIP SLYME and Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra to name a few, and with a tremendously successful concert at the Hibiya Open-Air Concert Hall in Tokyo in the fall. OKAMOTO’S is the leading figure among the young bands on the Japanese music scene.

Ling tosite sigure

Trio rock band, Ling tosite sigure are making a great breakthrough in Japan at the moment. They don’t make many media appearances but word of mouth about the bands live performance is a key factor in boosting their popularity. Not only their remarkable performance, but the bands signature sound is also uniquely appealing – sharp and tough guitar sounds, male-female intertwined high-pitched vocals, strong and steady distorted bass sounds, hard drum play, and progressive beats weave together to make exquisite music. The band released their “Best of Tornado” album and the latest single “Who What Who What” on the same day in January 2015. “Who What Who What” was used for “PSYCHO-PASS: The Movie” as the title tune.

      Should be a great weekend! I will be interviewing HYDE when he comes to London. Are there any questions you would like me to ask him?

        That’s so awesome!! Hmm I think I’d ask: You would regularly feature an abundance of your solo works during your Vamps performances and as a big fan of your solo works, do you think you’ll further your solo career in the future? (Pleads for more singles or please another album!!) And secondly: What is the status of L’arc~en~ciel? Oh one more: Will you be producing another special Halloween project this year? So so loved your Halloween Junky Orchestra =). I would be the worst interviewer of all time, these are just a few thoughts here and I’d totally understand if you don’t use them ^^. I imagine I may faint if I were ever so near to him =P! Thank you~♡.

      Have taken note of your questions and will indeed ask them, if possible. Maybe I should act out your fainting for you, hee hee. I’ve been invited to the JAPAN NIGHT launch party so hopefully get a chance to chat to VAMPS then. The other bands from Japan who are lined-up to play at the two-day live event will also be there. I’ll take lots of photos for you, MorningBerryz 🙂
