December 28, 2016. This was the second show I had been eagerly awaiting. Passcode’s MISS UNLIMITED Tour Final at Studio Coast. As the final show of their major label debut tour, this show was not one for a Passcode fan to miss. Continue reading →
Do you guys remember when Yurumerumo was going to wrap up their WE ARE A ROCK FESTIVAL tour by playing their own instruments at the finale (inadvertently previewed here)? Like, Younapi with the hilarious Moog synthesizer and Chiffon on bass (of course) and you felt pretty confident about Ano on guitar and, sure, Kechon can probably handle drums?
Today’s a light one, gang, because life doesn’t slow down just because you’d like it to (I am listening to Darkthrone, and I’d like for things to be quite slow indeed!). BUT I’d made a point to check up on Q’ulle’s Other Side of HOPE Asian tour finale that happened tonight, seeing as how there was some uncertainty as to just what would happen with Q’ulle at this point, new album aside.
I won’t belabor the “we succeeded, now we’re out” situation that’s led to Tsubasa Fly calling it quits, and that final show happening while this is posting (no kidding, they might be on stage at this very moment). An independent to the end, they ground out a place of respect and, finally, a relative degree of commercial success in an ever-more-competitive scene.

One of the most popular and divisive things I’ve ever added to this site was my 18-kinds-of-come-on theorizing about just what it is that’s going to end at Babymetal’s Tokyo Dome show (Babymetal. The answer is Babymetal. Kind of.).
Well, friends, in the last few days, I’ve become privy to even more information and noticed even more indications that I am either entirely correct or so visionary that Babymetal decided to forego their plans, which were obvious only to me as a person of incredible intelligence, foresight and good looks.

I’ve referenced before my feeling that something big and unexpected is going to happen on the culminating evening of Babymetal‘s back-to-back tour final at the Tokyo Dome. That tends to be how and when they make major announcements — world tour, albums, etc. — but there’s something in the air for this one, and I’ve been trying to get a handle on it.
Based on a photo released this morning, I finally think I know what that big and unexpected thing is going to be, and we’re none of us going to like it.
This has happened before, only to have select videos get pulled; these have been in place for almost two months, so we may yet have a source for the closest thing to a full BiSreunion for “nerve” that has ever happened.
