VAMPS are back! In Europe! For one night only! The Japanese rock duo will return to London on 28 March 2014 for a very special one-off show at KOKO in Camden. Pre-sale tickets are online from 9am on Thursday 23 January, while general sales begin from Friday 24 January 2014 from LiveNation.

VAMPS are HYDE (L’Arc-en-Ciel) and K.A.Z (Oblivion Dust). These two musicians have been working closely producing HYDE’s solo work since 2003.

Just after the release of their 1st single, “LOVE ADDICT”, on July 2, 2008, VAMPS launched an impressive Japan countrywide tour, “VAMPS LIVE 2008”. The tour consisted of an unprecedented 46 live performances in Japan’s 6 largest cities, all at the prestigious ZEPP concert venues. The tour was a tremendous success, and VAMPS haven’t stopped since.

During 2008 to 2010 they performed about 200 concerts not only in Japan, but also all over the world (North America, South America, Hawaii, Europe and Asia). As of now, VAMPS have released 2 full albums (“VAMPS” and “BEAST”), 7 singles and 5 live DVDs. The 2nd album “BEAST” was ranked 4th in the sales charts in South America, the first time ever for a Japanese artist. That same year they also received the “Billboard JAPAN Rising International Artist 2009” award.

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.
