UPDATED: According to Kerrang!, L’Arc en Ciel is the biggest band you’ve never heard of. Which would be true if this story was posted on most other websites, but the sentiment rings true. L’Arc en Ciel are bloody massive. And recently celebrated 20 years in the industry with a two day concert at Tokyo’s Ajinomoto Stadium to crowds upward of 100,000. Now, fans from the UK can experience a condensed two-hour edition of their 20th L’Anniversary (we see what they did there…) from the comfort of London’s Piccadilly Apollo Cinema on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 December 2011.

Tickets for the screenings are on sale now for £18, with concessions available at £15. To purchase tickets for Monday’s show (starting at 6:30pm) click here, for Tuesday show (starting later a 8:30pm) click here.  The anniversary concert originally took place on 28-29 May, with each day dedicated to a decade in L’Arc en Ciel’s career. If you can’t wait until then, the group’s latest single X X X (pronounced ‘Kiss Kiss Kiss’) is available on iTunes UK, Play.com and Amazon.co.uk  along with its B-sides for around £2.49!

And if you didn’t already know, L’Arc en Ciel is also London bound! Make sure you clear Wednesday 11 April 2012 in your diaries as that’s the day the boys hit the InidgO2 for their debut UK show. Tickets go on sale soon. If you want to be the first to know, promoters AEG Live have a handy mailing list you can sign up to to ensure you’re amongst the first to be informed.


About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
