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.

Hard rocking, hard rolling and hard touring; VAMPS have announced that they will once again tour Europe!

VAMPS, a unit of two members; hyde from legendary rock band L’Arc~en~Ciel, and K.A.Z from Oblivion Dust, will be returning to Europe this October. They will play at London’s O2 Academy Islington on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th October. Tickets for Monday’s show have now sold out. The remaining tickets for Sunday’s performance are available from TicketWeb by clicking here.

Since 2008 VAMPS have been rocking live houses all over the world with their mixture of rhythmic rock and sexy vocals. Not only do they love it live, they also make an intoxicating mix in the studio with a string of singles, every one of which has been in the Japanese charts.

London has played host to hyde once before for a legendary show by L’Arc~en~Ciel in 2012, we can’t wait to have him back with VAMPS. European tour dates are as follows:

28 September: Barcelona, Sala Apolo
1 October: Paris, L’Olympia
3 October: Berlin, Kesselhaus
6 October: London, O2 Academy Islington
7 October: London, O2 Academy Islington

As well as announcing this tour, VAMPS have also revealed a new album, SEX BLOOD ROCK ‘N’ ROLL, which will contain re-recordings of all their hit singles to date. There is not yet a date for release. We can’t fault their classic choice of album title.
