Hotei returning to the London stage with Special Guests and Visual Show

hotei_web_news

Japanese superstar musician Tomoyasu Hotei brought his show to London this time last year, packing out the Roundhouse for a night of some of the classiest rock’n’roll we’ve ever seen. This year, the Electric Samurai is bringing his show back to London on the 9th of November, and it looks like he’s determined to make it even more mind-blowing.

Famous all over the world for his musical contributions to Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Hollywood blockbuster Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Hotei began his career in the legendary band BOØWY. His particular guitar style has led him to greater and greater heights over the years and he shows a diversity and enjoyment for music which makes his performances irresistible. With a career spanning more than thirty years, Hotei is a real guitar craftsman.

profFollowing on from his successful Japanese tour this summer, Hotei’s upcoming London show will feature special guests Andy Mackay, English multi-instrumentalist best known as a founding member of Roxy Music, and Mike Edwards, the vocalist for successful British group Jesus Jones. Both of these artists have been collaborators with Hotei in the past and this performance will be a reunion. Known for his incredible collaborations with many musicians, from pop stars to full orchestras, we don’t doubt this won’t be a spectacle to miss.

Furthermore, Hotei’s Official Website has promised a special visual show will be coming to the Shepherd’s Bush Empire, which has previously played host to Japanese pop stars Perfume. Perfume brough a state of the art projection mapping show to the venue just three months ago, and it seems that Hotei is planning something equally spectacular. The show will be designed by some of Japan’s top young creators at RBGcreation Co., Ltd.

We don’t doubt that anyone who’s anyone will be at this show, so don’t miss out! Tickets for the show are on sale now from £28.50.

Date: 9th November 2013, 19:00
Venue: London o2 Shepherds Bush Empire
Tickets: LiveNation, TicketWeb
