Live Viewing Japan, a Japanese-based media distribution company dedicated to introducing Japanese artists of various genres around the world, presents the screening of L’Arc-en-Ciel‘s first live concert of 2015, “LIVE 2015 L’ArCASINO” (Day 2) at Anthology Film Archives. The two-day concert took place on September 21 and 22, and it not only marked the band’s first performance in 2015, but also their long-awaited return as L’Arc-en-Ciel after the last concert held at National Stadium back in March of 2014. “LIVE 2015 L’ArCASINO” is definitely a concert that every music fan should not miss from the super band.
Comprised of hyde (Vocal), ken (Guitar), tetsuya (Bass), and yukihiro (Drums), L’Arc-en-Ciel achieved blockbuster commercial success with many number one singles and albums on the Oricon charts after their major debut in 1994. The band features a wide range of sounds from hard-rock tunes to romantic ballads. To date, L’Arc-en-Ciel has sold more than 15 million albums, 16 million singles, and millions of merchandise, including DVDs.
Finding success at home in Japan, L’Arc-en-Ciel continued to expand their profile through launching activities overseas. In 2004, L’Arc-en-Ciel made their North American debut at the largest anime convention in the east coast, Otakon, as the first Japanese band to perform at the 1st Mariner Arena, which attracted an audience of 12,000 people. The band embarked on a stunning world tour in 2012, which covered 10 countries throughout Asia, Europe, and North America. Their New York show took place at Madison Square Garden on March 25, 2012, making L’Arc-en-Ciel the first Japanese artist ever to be the lead act at the legendary venue. The band has conquered the Japanese rock scene at a furious pace, while setting their sights worldwide to keep up with the frenzied response in Asia, Europe, and the United States.
