Tomoyasu Hotei to Return to London this November


After bringing his star studded show to London’s Roundhouse last December, Tomoyasu Hotei has announced he will be returning to a London stage in November. One of Japan’s most famous guitarists, Hotei is most famous internationally for his track, Battle Without Honour or Humanity, the theme from Quentin Tarantino’s film Kill Bill. The show will be at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on November 9th and promises to be even more spectacular than his last show here.

Hotei’s list of achievements is so long, we probably couldn’t fit it all on our website (although we did try in this post). Over his three decade career, he has collaborated with David Bowie, performed at the Atlanta Olympics with Michael Kamen in 1996 and arranged the music for the box office smasher Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. And after his star cast last time, including The Stalin‘s Tatsuya Nakamura and TOKIE from metal outfit RIZE, we’re definately looking forward to finding out who might be gracing the stage of the Shepherd’s Bush Empire along side him.

We can’t wait to experience the next level from Hotei!

Tickets available from Ticketweb now from £28.50 (excluding fees).
